Where we are, it's about victories - License to Win!
Commitment to sustainability – for HOLMENKOL a mission that arises from the company’s identity. "We live outdoors, we love outdoors, we are outdoors," says Pupp. "Nature is our playground - that's why we have to protect it."
This principle applies to the entire Natural range, whose products carry the eco-label – another unique selling point. They are biodegradable in accordance with OECD 301. More than 60 percent of the ingredients are degraded after 28 days. And with these products, winter sports enthusiasts don't even have to compromise on performance.
Sustainability from production to packaging.
For HOLMENKOL, sustainability does not end with the products’ ingredients. The Natural range’s packaging is also very important. They all already have the green dot and can be disposed of in the yellow bin or yellow sack. HOLMENKOL is also gradually replacing all packaging and increasingly using recycled materials. These are plastics that have already been recycled at least once. By the end of 2020, more than 60 percent of HOLMENKOL's boxes and bottles for all products will be made of these recycled materials.
HOLMENKOL also keeps an eye on production with regard to working methods that conserve resources. "Made in Germany" is an important principle for the ski wax manufacturer with its production facility near Münster/North Rhine-Westphalia, which allows for short delivery routes. The use of green electricity and the in-house photovoltaic system also ensure low energy consumption. Every day we are working on further reducing the consumption of energy, water and waste. As a result, we were able to save up to five tonnes of waste, 70,000 kWh of electricity, 16.8 tonnes of CO2 and 375 cubic metres of water in one year. HOLMENKOL wants to resolutely continue pursuing this path.
