Corporate social responsibility
We take our responsibility seriously
We document all our actions during the production process. We offer full test reports and quality reports on delivery to secure openness. This guarantees both us and our clients the highest possible quality standards. It is our priority to have a close dialogue with our partners. We visit our partners’ production sites when possible to secure an open line for communications regarding the production.
We also prioritize the social conditions on our partners’ sites. We cooperate with companies who offer the relevant social certifications such as BSCI or/and SEDEX that live up to our customers’ requests.
metal recycles forever
Tin is 100% recyclable and is therefore one of the most sustainable packaging materials on the market today. When choosing tin for your product, you take an active stand on securing a greener future.
The “METAL recycles forever™”-logo sends out a clear visual signal to your European consumers that you have actively chosen a sustainable material for your packaging. A material which, in principle, can be recycled an infinite number of times, and has a high recycling rate.
By bearing this logo, your product will contribute to sending a message to the world that metal – by comparison with many other materials – reduces the global consumption of resources.
The probably most important effects of the logo is that it helps the consumer to recycle the packaging correctly after use.
Companized has a FSC®-certified trademark license. This license grant us permission to mark our wood, cardboard and paper products with the FSC-logo if all stages of the production live up to the applicable requirements for FSC®-certified forests.
The brand guarantees that no more wood is cut down than the forest can reproduce. The FSC® certification is also a guarantee that animals and plant life are protected and that the people working in the forest are trained and receive proper safety equipment and salary.
As the world’s only global organization, FSC has support from WWF, Greenpeace and Forests of the World as well as social organizations as the BAT-cartel and companies from all over the world.
We work directly with factories in China – without agents or middlemen – and therefore we control all of the production processes from development of prototype to colour adjustment and freight ourselves.
