Grow together – sustainably.

What is our understanding of sustainability?

Sustainability means being fair to nature, to farmers, to suppliers and to everyone who ist taking part of creating our products. We work together with our employees, suppliers and customers for developing a sustainable strategty to protect the climate and treat our resources with care.

 


Activities

In a long term collaboration with the Austrian League for Nature Conservation Naturschutzbund Österreich general awareness-raising work for protection of the wild bees is being pursued through the bee happy project. The aim is to create lots of flower strips and nesting aids as nurseries for bees in people’s gardens and on private land. Also, Steirerkraft's contract farmers do this in their fields. We support them by hosting informative meetings and giving free seed packages to create wild flower strips near their agricultural land – until now about 20 hectars of flower strips have been realised.

We should stress that our company is working hard with our suppliers to reduce plastic use and introduce recyclable packaging. We attach great importance to minimising the distance over which raw materials and inputs are transported.

We are also working on progressive implementation of an energy management system compliant with ISO 50001.
Furthermore, we strive to use sustainably produced electricity: we have a charging station for electric cars and bicycles and some of the production buildings are equipped with photovoltaic systems.
Estyria cares about nature and about people. The company emphasises sustainable quality so that our customers also benefit.
