orfix – Protecting nature. Protecting people.
As a family-run medium-sized company, we do not pay lip service to sustainable action and the protection of the environment, but rather express our ecological responsibility. This is why orfix has been addressing the issue of sustainability in a holistic sense for years, not least through the initiative of our shareholders at home and abroad.
In times of climate change, scarcity of resources and the endangerment of the natural basis of life we invested here early on in order to act in an economically, ecologically and socially sustainable manner. Our corporate strategy is also designed for holistic sustainable management in the future.
Certified environmental and quality management systems support us in successfully implementing our strategy for the benefit of the environment, our employees, our stakeholders and our company.
With the 2030 Agenda adopted in 2015, the United Nations have agreed to become the 17th
committed to global goals (Sustainable Development Goals / SDGs) for a better future.
We are also committed to the sustainable development goals of the UN. We have these
made the basis of our sustainability strategy. Here we show you what we
have already achieved 11 of the goals for the time being.

Water is life. That’s why we at orfix take a particularly responsible approach to this important resource.
Energy and CO₂ Consumption
Since 2015, we have already been purchasing 100 percent of our electricity as pure green electricity from our local supplier.
Economic Growth and Common Welfare
As early as 2009, we set ourselves the creation of decent jobs as an equally important corporate goal, in addition to optimizing our cost structure and corporate growth.
Innovative solutions require a permanent exchange with experts. That is why we work closely with renowned institutes, such as the Fraunhofer Institute, the Institute for Bioplastics & Biocomposites Hanover and numerous professional associations.
In our company, ecological and economic sustainability is the focus of our actions.
