Long-term independence as a family business

As a family business, we attach great importance to our employees, sustainable growth and conservation of resources. The guiding principles that we developed in 2012 in conjunction with our employees describes the company’s goals and strategies. All the Felix Schoeller Group’s employees and partners subscribe to these guiding principles, which in key areas go much further than statutory requirements and clearly illustrate that Felix Schoeller is a medium-sized family company that successfully combines dynamic growth with sustainable business practices.


Corporate Social Responsibility is also an important part of Felix Schoeller Group. We demonstrate this by having ourselves assessed by the international CSR rating organization EcoVadis. 21 criteria from the areas of environment, labour and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement were analysed. Criteria such as energy consumption and greenhouse gases, water, recyclables, chemicals, waste, product life cycle and environment, sustainable consumption, occupational safety, working conditions, career planning and training, child and forced labour, discrimination, fundamental human rights, corruption and bribery, anti-competitive practices, suppliers & environment, suppliers & social affairs were all included in the evaluation in detail.

We are in the top 8% of all companies evaluated and were awarded "CSR Gold".
