Our responsibility

We see sustainability as our duty to the generations of today and tomorrow and have made the idea of sustainability an integral part of our corporate strategy. We associate financial success with an awareness of economic, environmental and social responsibility. We also adhere to the sustainability guidelines of the chemical industry in Germany and follow the Responsible Care guidelines of the German Chemical Industry Association (VCI).

Environmental protection, sustainability and careful use of the resources at our disposal: these are our yardsticks for corporate responsibility With our sister company Follmann GmbH & Co. KG., we are committed to environmental friendliness and high safety standards for customers, suppliers, authorities and employees. We are certified to the following quality standard:

ISO 9001:2015
Triflex Nachhaltigkeit

Environment and sustainability

Only the responsible use of natural resources for the benefit of future generations will ensure our long-term entrepreneurial success.

In our Sustainability Report 2017, we regularly provide customers, suppliers, authorities and the interested public with detailed information on the situation and measures in environmental protection.

As a responsibly managed company, we provide our employees with principles and rules for correct and responsible conduct. Our Code of Conduct, based on our principles and values, expresses the expectations of the Group as an employer and is mandatory when conducting business.

Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals

REACH (Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals) is the new EU Regulation on chemicals and their safe use, which has been in force since 1.6.2007. This EU Regulation deals with essential aspects of manufacturing and trading of chemical substances. The REACH Regulation applies to individual materials and also for preparations (formulations) and products that contain these substances.

Together with the Environment and Safety Department at our sister company Follmann & Co. we track the consequences of REACH implementation and can therefore ensure compliance with the EU Regulation for our customers and partners.

Social and socio-political commitment

We have been investing in environmental technology for decades, thus cutting both our consumption of resources and our emissions. We reduce the volume of waste, residual materials and waste water to a minimum through these technical and organisational measures – and monitor this continuously. Triflex is an important employer in Minden that fulfils its social responsibility as a medium-sized family business. Our corporate culture is open and fair. We maintain an ongoing dialogue with our employees, customers, neighbours, environmental associations, schools, journalists and politicians.  

Corporate responsibility for liquid applied waterproofing systems and markings

In order to broaden expertise in the area of liquid applied waterproofing and cold plastics, we are actively involved in professional associations and bodies on a national and international level. We see ourselves as part of society and take responsibility for our actions. This is why we have a self-imposed duty to offer only quality products to the construction industry, which are of benefit to all parties concerned. This is only possible through dialogue with all parties involved in construction projects.
