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 sustainable sourcing and the sustainable use of natural resources and raw materials. We prioritize our relationships with suppliers who operate in compliance with a sustainable business model. We guarantee the full transparency and traceability of our products and the safeguard of human rights across the entire supply chain in compliance with Bolton Group's Policy on Human Rights.
We are committed to reducing the environmental impact of our plants’ production processes by limiting emissions and the consumption of materials and by reducing waste. We constantly work towards improving the quality of our products.
We value our people through training programs; we offer a healthy, stimulating working environment. We work to benefit communities with projects that support scientific research, the environment and culture, and we intervene in emergency situations. We promote school education with Bolton Group’s “We Care For Child Education” program.
We care from day to day at Bolton Adhesives

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.

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.
