Greiner Hard Talks

Greiner Hard Talks

We need to speak!

Important topics, tough questions, exciting answers – this is Greiner Hard Talks. In our new interview format, we invite Greiner's top management to discuss the global challenges of the present and the future. Questions about change, transformation and sustainability offer plenty to talk about and are sure to challenge the participants.

How do plastics, foam and sustainability fit together? How can we create a better future for generations to come? And what challenges do we need to overcome as a company? Get to know our executives from a new perspective and learn more about their views on the big issues of our time.

What’s the future of foam, Oliver Bruns?

“The future of foam has to be a closed-loop ecosystem.”

In this episode of Greiner Hard Talks, we welcome Oliver Bruns, CEO of NEVEON since July 2020. There is no way around foam products in everyday life. Whether you are lying in your bed, sitting in the car, or going on vacation by plane – NEVEON products are everywhere. However, to recycle foam products remains a big challenge for the industry. So how do foam and sustainability go together, and when will we manage to close the much-needed loops?

Hannes Moser on growth and sustainability

“The way of doing business must be different than in the past.”

As CFO of Greiner, Hannes Moser has been making important strategic decisions for almost ten years. These decisions are increasingly driven by sustainability considerations. But is it actually possible to get growth and sustainability together? What’s the importance of sustainability when negotiating with banks? And why is transformation crucial to survive as a company? These are only some of the questions that Hannes Moser discusses with Stefan Grafenhorst, Head of Sustainability at Greiner AG.

Please take a seat, Axel Kühner!

“It’s not about avoiding plastics, it’s about avoiding plastics waste.”

In the first episode of our new format, we welcome Axel Kühner, the CEO of Greiner AG. For almost twelve years, he has been managing the activities of the Greiner Group. Not an easy task when thinking about the ecological and social responsibility of an international plastics and foam company. What is Axel's attitude towards sustainability, transformation and plastic bans? What does he think about the public perception of plastic and the pollution of our oceans? And which famous person would he like to meet for dinner? These are only some of the questions which Stefan Grafenhorst, Head of Sustainability at Greiner AG, will be asking our CEO.
