Big impact, small footprint
We recognize that all our stakeholders become increasingly aware of our actions on our people, communities and the natural environment. We are proud to take this mindset shift seriously and are explicitly committed to implementing a long-term ESG sustainability strategy – to optimize our environmental footprint, but also to be able to tackle all future challenges. We put sustainability not only in an environmental sense but also in a social sense at the heart of our business strategy. It is about finding a constant balance between people, the environment and the economy for the entire Amadys. We are committed to working together with our suppliers and customers on this important task. Sustainability will be at the heart of our business and one of the key levers for our continued success: our win in ESG is a win for our entire company.
Our ESG strategy is not limited to environmental and social issues, but also encompasses governance issues. We recognize that our employees and other stakeholders may face obstacles, difficult decisions and ethical dilemmas in working with us. We know that it takes courage to speak out. That’s why we have implemented an anonymous whistleblower system that allows our employees and suppliers to raise ethical concerns without fear of retaliation.

ambitions for today
EnergyWe’re joining forces with the sun
Environmental protection and sustainable development have become important considerations for us. We identified the switch to renewable energy sources as one key lever to reduce GHG emissions (especially Scope 2). We recognize renewable energy sourcing as a substantial opportunity to minimize our organizations’ impact on climate and the environment.
People and cultureRoom for people
As diversity is in our DNA, we believe that everyone should be treated equally and that no one should be disadvantaged or discriminated against. Therefore, we have a strict anti-discrimination policy that we rigorously follow. This includes prohibiting discrimination at all levels.
Nature and the environmentSmaller footprint. Greater impact’
We recognize that the continued emissions of greenhouse gases will lead to further warming and irreversible changes in the entire climatic system, thereby increasing the likelihood of severe, widespread and irreversible physical impacts on humans and ecosystem. Passive behaviour becomes a risk for companies, as government tightened, and climate-damaging behaviour can lead to lead to reputational damage. We have an obligation to leading by example.
RecyclingThe cycle of raw materials
AMADYS has defined a group-wide strategy with targets and initiatives to avoid, reduce and mitigate environmental impacts where it operates. As part of this strategy, we commit to monitor our environmental performance across key KPIs and to regularly report on our environmental performance. Our AMADYS-wide environmental strategy includes the following environmental performance areas:
- Increasing share of recycled input in our products
- Reduce the level of solid waste
- Increasing share of fully or partly recyclable products in our portfolio
Why bring things from the other side of the world, when there are also producers closer to home? Buying as ‘locally’ as possible: that is our ambition. In addition, like a spider in the web, we are constantly looking for sustainable innovations and improvements with and for our partners.
To reduce our indirect greenhouse gas emissions, we aim to work closely with our suppliers and aim to procure low-emission products. To further reduce our indirect greenhouse gas emissions, we aim to ensure local sourcing, local delivery, minimizing emissions from transportation whenever possible.
