Sustainability activities at Coroflex

Ever since the Coroplast Group was founded in 1928, sustainable thinking and action have played a central role for the family-owned company. With the Coroplast Group Sustainability Initiative (CSI), the Group systematically implements its sustainability goals and measures. The Coroflex business unit supports this strategy with numerous measures and projects of its own.

Clear goals – concrete measures Coroflex contributes significantly to the Coroplast Group's sustainability strategy

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 implementation of a Group-wide climate strategy
  • the further development of our products
  • the use of energy- and resource-efficient measures
  • transparent reporting to our customers and stakeholders

The assessment considers both our internal view and external perspectives from various stakeholders such as partners, employees or customers.

Follow the green line

Under this slogan, Coroflex is focusing on the following measures and projects as part of its sustainability initiative:

  • Green Coroflex cable made from biomass-balanced raw material

    Biomass-balanced materials

    We want to gradually replace the fossil materials in our products with biobased materials (BMB). We are working with our suppliers on an alternative to thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) – so that we can produce our cables more resource-efficiently in the future.

  • Employees with bio-based, food-free raw material

    Avoiding food-based raw materials

    In the research and development of bio-based solutions for our products, we largely avoid raw materials that are made of foods, such as maize.

  • More copper from sustainable sources

    We are constantly working on increasing the percentage of recycled copper used for the conductors in our wires and cables. This helps to save energy – while retaining the same product quality.

  • Instructor and trainee between numerous high-voltage cables on reusable transport reels

    Reusable transport reels

    We have replaced our single-use wooden transport reels with recyclable and reusable plastic reels. This prevents wood from going to waste, conserves natural resources, reduces weight – and thus saves fuel during transport.

  • Red regranulate made from thermoplastic waste

    Preventing waste

    We already regranulate our thermoplastic waste and are working on steadily increasing the percentage that is regranulated. This prevents waste and returns our high-quality materials to the production process – the circular economy in action.

  • Weight-reduced Coroflex Highflex cables

    Lighter products

    Our cable solutions help to reduce the weight and size of the end product. Thanks to special production processes, they consume less and less raw materials, making them lighter and more flexible – and nevertheless robust.

  • Two Coroflex employees in PCB and talc-free production

    Healthier products

    We largely develop talcum-free wires and cables and do not use polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in our silicone processing. This helps protect human health – both during production and further processing.

  • Talc-free products for less cleaning work

    Less cleaning work

    By largely avoiding the use of talcum powder in our products, we reduce the need for cleaning of our machines and conserve water and human resources – without compromising on manual stripping.

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.
