In everything we do, we make maximum environmental responsibility and sustainability a priority. Our products are adapted perfectly to the biology of the water, run especially energy efficiently and are manufactured in the most environmentally friendly way possible. OASE also promotes and supports natural recycling processes. Along with the climate-neutral printing of our packaging and product catalogues, our German locations have been running exclusively on green energy since 2020. By switching our parcel shipping partner to GLS, the CO2 is also compensated for from our 2020 parcels delivered throughout Germany.
As a globally active company, we attach great importance to reducing plastic waste. As part of our internal "NoPlastic" initiative, OASE employees review all packaging and reduce any excessively used material. OASE is also part of the dual system, holds a licence for the Green Dot and supports the systematic recycling of packaging waste.
As a participant in the Ökoprofit project with a successfully passed exam, OASE was honoured by the Environment Minister of NRW. These initiative of the NRW region and the Steinfurt district promotes the continuous improvement of environmental protection, while taking into account ecology and economy.
Part of our OASE catalogues, price lists, flyers and instructions for use are produced at print shops that work with FSC-certified materials. We plan to expand this further in future.
Climate Neutral Certificate
Due to climate change, we are constantly working to reduce pollutants at all levels. For example, we deliberately produce some of our print materials in accordance with the latest standards through climate-neutral production.
As a member of the Business Social Compliance Initiative, OASE possesses certification for our production site in China. This programme by the business-related association amfori advocates the improvement of social standards in a global value chain.
Business Power Green Certificates
Since 2020, we have been using exclusively green electricity from the Stadtwerke Düsseldorf, which is generated from renewable energies, at all our German locations. At least 33 percent of this electricity comes from so-called new plants that are not older than six years at the beginning of the accounting period.
