Positively influencing the world in which we live and work
Building and supporting sustainability in all our corporate processes and culture.
Our commitment is focused where we have the opportunity to make a difference: sustainable packaging and climate protection.
As a leading global service provider, Eurofins Genomics ships and packages several hundred products to over 120 countries every day. This calculates to more than 20 tons of packaging and shipping material per year.
That is why we partnered with the Deutsche Post and their GOGREEN climate protection program. To offset the CO2 emissions generated by shipping, the Deutsche Post invests in climate protection projects that are certified in accordance with recognized international standards. This means that all our products are shipped 100% C02neutral.
Reducing our carbon footprint for a sustainable planet Earth tommorow is our focus for the future. All our shipping and packaging material sent to customers is 100 % recyclable. We recycle paper, cans, plastic and glass in all our offices and production laboratories. Cardboard materials including shipping and packaging materials we receive are reused to store a variety of office materials and documents.
We also use climate-neutral printing. Climate-neutral printing is a C02 compensation process. The C02-emission generated by our printing will be compensated with afforestation by recognised climate-protection projects. The paper used to print in the office bears the EU Ecolabel and PEFC logo.
The EU ecolabel scheme is a commitment to environmental sustainability. From the raw materials to manufacturing, packaging, distribution and disposal, EU Ecolabel products are evaluated by independent experts to ensure they meet criteria that reduce their environmental impact.
The PEFC logo stems from the PEFC, the world’s largest forest certification organization. All wood and wood-based products bearing the PEFC logo originate form sustainably managed forests.
We have recognised that making a difference in our world and environment is possible in our daily work.
