WE CARE - OUR COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY
We Care is Bolton Group’s sustainability plan which we have adopted as Bolton Adhesives. It is based on three pillars:
- SOURCING, for the sustainable procurement and use of natural resources and raw materials
- PRODUCING, for the sustainability of our products and our plants
- PEOPLE, for the well-being of our people and support of the community.
We guarantee the supply and sustainable use of natural resources and raw materials. We foster relationships with suppliers who operate according to a sustainable business model. We guarantee full transparency and traceability of our products and the protection of human rights along the supply chain in compliance with Bolton Group's Policy on Human Rights.
We implement a circularity approach to reduce the environmental impact of our manufacturing plants by limiting emissions and consumption of materials and energy, and reducing waste. We strive constantly to improve the quality of our products.
We empower our people with training programs and maintain a healthy, safe and stimulating work environment. We listen to consumers, by providing increasingly sustainable products. We work for communities with projects supporting scientific research, the environment and culture, and we take action in emergency situations. We promote school education with the “We Care for Child Education” program.
We care from day to day at Bolton Adhesives
We develop high-quality products for different target groups. From the youngest pupils at school to professionals in the field, we offer suitable adhesive solutions. We continuously aim to improve our products and offer innovative solutions in order to meet the needs of our customers and end-users as well as of future generations.

We are engaged in reducing the environmental impact of the packaging of our products by developing more sustainable solutions without compromising product quality and safety. We are committed to follow a 5R approach within Bolton Group’s Packaging Policy to the responsible management of packaging materials.

A large part of our products is manufactured at our own factories in Germany and the Netherlands. We are aware of the social responsibility for our employees and for our business partners as well as for the communities around us. We support an active participation of our employees.
Our activities are based on relevant laws, regulations and agreements on occupational health & safety and environmental protection with the aim of a systematic reduction of risks. This enables us to create, maintain and develop safe and future-oriented workplaces with opportunities for growth and development. We are committed to meet all applicable legal and regulatory requirements.
In order to be able to fulfill these requirements in the long term, we commit ourselves to operate an Integrated Management System according to the international standards 9001, 14001 and 45001.
