Sustainability at Greiner

Our Memberships

Complex challenges such as the fight against the climate crisis and the establishment of a circular economy require joint solutions – across all countries, sectors and stages of the value chain.

Working together for more sustainability

We know that we can solve the major challenges we face only by working together. We are therefore a member of organizations in which companies, NGOs, financial institutions and other stakeholders along the entire value chain work to make our economy more sustainable.

The Alliance to End Plastic Waste has more than 90 member companies, supporters and alliance partners along the entire plastics value chain. All members are committed to proactively combating the plastic waste problem, and we have joined their efforts in 2020.

The Business Coalition for a Global Plastics Treaty was founded in September 2022, and we have been a member ever since. Together with more than 150 members, financial institutions and NGOs along the entire value chain, it supports the vision of a circular economy in which plastic never becomes waste and the value of products and materials in the economy is preserved.

In 2020 we decided to join the UN Global Compact (UNGC), the world’s largest and most important initiative for responsible corporate governance. The aim of the worldwide movement from business, politics and civil society is to make globalization more social and ecological, and thus contribute to an inclusive and sustainable global economy. As a signatory to the UN Global Compact, we are committed to its ten principles in the areas of human rights, labor standards, environmental protection and anti-corruption and actively contribute to promoting and complying with them.
