Sustainability and responsibility


Planatol GmbH not only stands for high-performance adhesives that are individually tailored to the customer’s needs, but also declares sustainability to be a central component of its corporate strategy. The company as well as all employees are consciously committed to the protection of people, the environment and social concerns and together we accompany this continuous improvement process.

Our sustainable actions are divided into three areas, which are actively lived by the company and our employees:

Economic responsibility


We see our sustainable economic activities, our national as well as international competitiveness, a stable financial position and the use of innovative technologies as a long-term basis for the success of our company and thus secure the jobs of our employees.

In order to permanently meet the expectations of our customers regarding our products and services and to secure our ambitious goals, we maintain a quality management system according to DIN EN ISO 9001.



Ecological responsibility

With energy-efficient or resource-saving manufacturing processes and innovative products, we make an important contribution to climate and environmental protection. In doing so, we not only pay attention to optimally coordinated processes right from the start, but also set ourselves the goal of making the use of our products by our customers as sustainable as possible. Intensive research and development into sustainable adhesives and the use of naturally renewable raw materials play an important role in this.

Not just since yesterday

Planatol has been producing and developing adhesives from renewable raw materials such as starch-based systems for many years, thus contributing to active environmental protection. We are continuously in close contact with our large network of suppliers in order to find new raw materials for sustainable production.

In the development and production of our adhesives, we pay attention to the responsible use of available resources, optimise their consumption and thus avoid unnecessary environmental pollution. In addition, we continuously try to minimise harmful substances in our formulations and, if possible, replace them completely. Through our membership in the IVK and our associated participation in various working groups, we are always well informed about industry news, changes in legislation, approvals or new standards.

As a certified specialist company in accordance with WHG, compliance with all requirements of the Water Resources Act is just as much a matter of course for us as the limitation of emissions to a minimum.

Of course, our plants are approved according to the Federal Immission Control Act (BlmSchG). The waste water from production is treated in our own water treatment plant and we are constantly looking for new technologies to further optimise and also reduce process waste water.

In order to reduce energy consumption and to realise savings potentials, we regularly carry out an energy audit according to DIN EN 16247 and implement appropriate measures effectively.

All our employees participate in the proper separation and disposal of waste in accordance with the packaging regulations. We leave our open spaces on the company premises largely to nature and respect the habitat of many animals and plants.


Social and corporate responsibility

As a medium-sized company, Planatol faces up to its social and societal responsibility. For this reason, the employee plays a central role and thus guarantees the sustainable success of the company. We see the health and motivation of our employees as an essential success factor. By regularly participating in measures for occupational safety and plant safety, we ensure safety at the workplace and thus avoid occupational accidents. We promote the know-how of our employees through permanent further training.

As a globally active company, we see our employees as the key to success. Our work is characterized by enthusiasm, diversity, collegiality, and respectful and open interaction with one another. This enables us to live up to our claim of constant innovation, wide-ranging know-how and an individual approach to customers.
