CSR 2019 Reduction Plan

Estillon wants to set an example of Corporate Social Responsibility. In collaboration with Estillon stakeholders, the intention is to take the interests of People, Planet and Profit into account in a balanced way. In March 2019, Estillon obtained the level 3 CSR performance ladder certificate for this.

2021 Reduction Plan 

Objectives and plan of approach for 2021:

The reduction target for gas consumption is 4% per year. We want to achieve this by using more selective heating and more efficient adjustment of the production line.

The reduction target for electricity for 2021 is 15%. 2019, we already had a reduction of 40%. Further reduction is envisaged through an even better match between generation and consumption. In addition, the ambition is to limit physical contact moments and to make more use of online alternatives.

CO2 performance scale, level 3

(more info at SKAO)
What does level 3 mean exactly? The company or the organisation has achieved the objectives for sustainable entrepreneurship that are feasible for the sector. Stakeholders are involved here who have a direct interest in the product or service or in preventing a negative effect from the performance of activities by the company or organisation.

RECYCLING

All plastic packaging, paper and residual wood from the production are separated and recycled. Part of the product range is fabricated from recycled materials. For example, the Best Base underlays are made from a mix of 100% recycled, clean, high-value polyurethane foam and the Finity felt carpet is made of 100% recycled PET bottles.

INITIATIVE

The “Sustainable Uden” platform By means of information transfer and by putting the search for collective sustainability in Uden on the agenda, reducing CO2 emissions in particular and making energy flows more sustainable.

SOLAR PANELS

The company building is fitted with 496 solar panels that generate 152,251 kWh annually. With this, Estillon will produce CO2 neutrally starting from March 2019.

DISTRIBUTION

Estillon works together with the transport company Van den Heuvel Logistiek. This is a local partner, selected in order to handle the total number of transport kilometres as sensibly as possible. Estillon also expects its partners/suppliers to share thoughts about corporate social responsibility.
