Protecting the environment has been a priority for Marabu since its foundation in 1859. However, over time the issues have changed. In the 1990s, waste management and recycling, air pollution concentrations, and ground contamination were major topics. Today, our main focus is improving energy and resource efficiency.
As a manufacturer of inks and paints, Marabu is a chemicals company. The way we apply raw materials while safeguarding users and the natural environment – particularly soil, air and water – is an ever-present concern. We are committed to offering products of the highest quality – while minimising the use of substances that pose health risks.
The future will see a greener economy. This means transitioning to sustainable manufacturing and consumption to conserve the natural resources that we depend on.
Marabu’s international subsidiaries uphold the enterprise’s commitment to environmental protection. No matter where they are located, they are bound by the same principles of our corporate philosophy – enshrined in our environmental policy, which mandates efforts to reduce emissions and waste across the entire Marabu group.
Marabu has implemented a number of projects to promote sustainable use of feedstocks, utilities and other materials, as well as energy, which are outlined in the Enviromental Report. For more details please take a look at the report.
