At BALLERSTAEDT, sustainable action is part of our corporate identity! Our goal is to use resources responsibly in order to satisfy the needs of our customers and stakeholders and thus to protect our world for future generations.
The main material for our sealing lids is aluminium, which is sourced exclusively from selected suppliers, 95% of which are based in Germany and Europe. As a packaging material, aluminium guarantees absolute protection against external influences such as light, foreign aromas or oxygen. Our customers' products are thus protected and given a longer shelf life. Aluminium is fully recyclable without any loss of quality.
Furthermore, we are working at full speed with our partners on the development of monomaterials that can be used for sealing in order to be able to dispense with composite materials and to increase the recyclability in the circulation system.
In the manufacture of our products, resource conservation and environmental protection are our top priorities! Emissions are reduced to a minimum and our declared goal is to make the processes at the Rastatt site climate-neutral. We already produce solar power to save energy and to use renewable energies, thus covering about 75% of our electricity needs. For heating purposes, we use 50% biogas and 80% of our company fleet consists of electric and hybrid vehicles.
BALLERSTAEDT is also part of the ECOVADIS network.
