As a leading industrial manufacturing company, Aalberts Industries is firmly grounded in society. The company depends on society, but is also strongly aware of its own social role. This role entails responsibilities that extend further than purely financial and economic business operations. Aalberts Industries recognises the impact that the company has on employees, the environment and society. After all, the company cooperates on a daily basis with suppliers, customers, and other participants in social and economic life. The company uses raw materials and semi-finished products, consumes energy, and generates waste. Aalberts Industries is also a people organisation. The development of employees and the constant attention paid to a safe and healthy work environment are key. Aalberts Industries therefore endorses the OECD and ILO guidelines concerning corporate responsibility.
