REBIL Group is certified by Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and in the European market uses exclusively certified papers from FSC certified paper mills. This makes sure that our purchases come from responsibly managed forests and stops arbitrary deforestation. Furthermore, we encourage the use of recycled paper. Upon request, we can also use sustainable vegetable-based (soy, canola or coconut) inks with the latest mineral-oil free technology. This gives us the possibility to use renewable raw materials to the highest possible proportion and to minimize or eliminate petroleum-based mineral oils. Such inks comply with EN 71/3 (suitability for toy packaging), CONEG (heavy metal regulation) as well as with ISO 2846-1 and allow printing in accordance to ISO 12647-2. For sure, the use of renewable resources is a contribution to environmental sustainability. This not only gives us peace of mind but also helps us to work with like-minded partners. This way we also drive other organizations in the whole supply chain to adapt their own practices as well.
We are also ISO 50001:2011 certified which is an energy management standard to manage energy – including all aspects of energy procurement and use. This helps us to establish a structure and discipline to implement technical and managerial strategies that significantly cut energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions. Besides, our whole environmental management system is certified by ISO 14001:2015. This is a systematic framework to manage the immediate and long-term environmental impacts of our products, services and processes. We can assure that our environmental management system meets international industryspecific environmental standards. Furthermore, we are using the Higg Index to identify important areas of activities in our supply chain because of our beliefs in environmental, social and labor aspects. This way we can achieve a great transparency about our environmental impact and benchmark our own sustainability performance when compared to the other stakeholders in the whole global supply chain. Hence, the whole industry will be able to report more specifically on water, energy and raw material consumption, waste and wastewater in the future. This will accelerate more innovations for green products as well. Let’s save our resources and make the world a better place for our children!
