In order to remain successful in the future, the entire Coroplast Group, and thus also the Coroflex business unit, relies on a carefully thought-out sustainability strategy. The basis for this key task is a materiality analysis that assesses the need for action on the central issues and thus gives us the following clear priorities:
The assessment considers both our internal view and external perspectives from various stakeholders such as partners, employees or customers.
We develop talc-free cables and avoid PCBs during silicone processing. In this way, we protect people's health – in our production and also in further processing.
By reducing or eliminating the use of talcum powder in our products, we reduce the contamination of the machines and thus the need for cleaning. In this way, we conserve the resource water – and manual stripping still works perfectly.
In Germany, we use up to 40 % recycled copper for the conductors of our wires & cables. This enables us to conserve resources and save energy – while maintaining the same product quality.
We replace our wooden transport spools with spools made of reusable and recyclable plastic. In this way, we reduce raw material consumption, support the circular economy – and save weight during transport with the lighter plastic spools.
With a processing machine for the regranulation of insulation residues, we succeed in avoiding waste as well as winning back high-quality raw materials for cable sheathing.
Our cable solutions support weight and space savings in end products. Because they require less raw materials, they are lighter, more flexible – and still extremely robust.
We have optimized the composition of the sheathing materials of our products. This enables our customers to better recycle Coroflex cables and reduce their waste volumes – in addition, our products are very stable and therefore have a long service life.
As a development partner, Coroflex is setting trends in electromobility with resource-saving, durable cables and wires. In this way, we are contributing significantly to sustainable mobility.
