Products dedicated to sustainability

​​​​​​​Why ACTGreen®?

​​​​​​​The use of natural and limited resources is increasing worldwide. There is a growing competition for diminishing raw materials. Resource- and emission-intensive industrial nations are a challenge to be mentioned here, as well as the rapid progress of developing countries. In addition, there are global environmental problems, such as climate change or increasing amounts of waste. The idea of sustainability is becoming ever more important.

​​​​​​​Environmental sustainability is no longer a niche issue. Only those who know their own responsibility can sustainably improve their company’s image and realize a competitive advantage.

The objective is to create new sustainable product solutions or product solutions that contribute to more environmental protection. Act Green!
