Watching our footprint
Sustainability concerns environmental, financial and social conditions. At Laader Berg, we want to contribute to a better future through the way we work.
We are particularly keen to contribute through the development of new technology, better solutions and close cooperation with our customers. That is why we have adopted “The Partner” as our watchword.
Good health and well-being
By 2030, substantially reduce the number of deaths and illnesses from hazardous chemicals and air, water and soil pollution and contamination.
Chemicals are a necessary input factor in the polyurethane foam industry. Safe handling and good routines are important for human health and preserving the environment. Laader Berg develops machines that ensure the best possible control of these chemicals. We also assist our customers to design factory layouts and adopt best practices for chemicals handling.
For years, Laader Berg has contributed to the board of directors and working groups in Europur’s ongoing work to establish international guidelines, best practices and targets for HSE in the polyurethane foaming industry.
Europur has established a certification programme called “CertiPUR”, which covers the environmental, health and safety properties of polyurethane foam used in bedding and upholstered furniture applications.
Affordable and clean energy
By 2030, increase substantially the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.
Laader Berg uses only renewable, locally generated hydropower in its production and administration.
This is guaranteed by means of a “green certificate” issued by its electricity supplier.
Decent work and economics growth
Achieve higher levels of economic productivity through diversification, technological upgrading and innovation, including through a focus on high-value added and labour-intensive sectors.
Laader Berg invests significant resources in innovation. Our objective is to make the technology as efficient as possible in order to achieve the highest possible yield from the chemicals used in the production process.
Technology and knowledge developed at Laader Berg are actively shared with customers around the world. In this way, we help them become increasingly productive and efficient.
Protect labour rights and promote safe and secure working environments for all workers, including migrant workers, in particular women migrants, and those in precarious employment.
It has always been Laader Berg’s policy to focus on workers’ wellbeing and implement high standards of HSE in our products, processes and services. We provide good working conditions in modern facilities, social activities and occupational health services. As a result, we have a stable, dedicated and professional workforce.
Laader Berg is a global supplier of foaming machines. We design, produce and deliver to European standards, regardless of the market.
Industry, Innovation and infrastructure
By 2030, upgrade infrastructure and retrofit industries to make them sustainable, with increased resource-use efficiency and greater adoption of clean and environmentally sound technologies and industrial processes, with all countries taking action in accordance with their respective capabilities
Laader Berg develops machines that can be retrofitted with new modules and functions. This can significantly boost an older machine’s efficiency and improve the utilization of raw materials.
Our machines have proven to last for decades. With Laader Berg’s new technology, support and retrofit capability, customers with machines from as far back as the 1970s and ’80s are still producing high quality foam on a daily basis.
Laader Berg is, and has always been, a trusted partner.
Responsible consumption and production
By 2030, substantially reduce waste generation through prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse
Laader Berg’s machine design, unique control system and expert-led training enable customers to optimize the foam production process, fully utilize the raw materials and minimize waste.
