RKB’s public policy is grounded on the principles of corporate social responsibility. We strive to conduct ourselves with the high level of integrity and commitment to public citizenship that is our company’s heritage. We know that this assumption of responsibility is one of the keys to long-term business success.
The social and economic impact of global climate change is becoming increasingly evident. It is therefore essential for the international community to take prompt action to prevent the most severe consequences of climate change. RKB contributes to these efforts by implementing internal measures and by using its expertise to create innovative products and services. Moreover, we’ve also ensured that products and materials have met stringent standards for low emissions of volatile organic compounds into indoor air.
Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing mankind. We and our clients are also impacted by climate developments. We are responding to this issue by implementing internal environmental measures to help mitigate the negative effects of climate change. Climate protection and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions are two of the most pressing issues of our times. We recognized the need for action at an early stage and are systematically implementing climate-related measures on a number of levels. Since 2009, for example, RKB has been relying more and more on energy coming from renewable green sources, with the purpose of achieving greenhouse gas neutrality.
In our sustainability policy, we pledge to support sustainable development and to protect the environment. Our activities focus on reducing our greenhouse gas emissions and on achieving greenhouse gas neutrality for all our operations worldwide. Our environmental management system, which is certified according to ISO 14001, helps us safeguard resources, reduce environmental impact and save costs.
Sparing use of resources
Energy consumption (electricity and heat) is the area in which we have by far the most significant operational impact on the environment. Therefore, we try to find the most environmentally friendly solutions wherever possible and economically viable by using energy-saving technologies and focusing on achieving a high level of energy efficiency when realizing operational enhancements. In this regard, RKB has gained ISO 50001:2018 certification for its energy management system. Moreover, we raise our employees’ awareness of the need to consume energy sparingly and urge them to carefully use natural resources.
