Sustainability

ALFA Klebstoffe AG produces water based and environmentally-friendly adhesives. However, the subject of sustainability is also deeply anchored in our company and a central building block in our company philosophy. This is also evident in what we do everyday, which is based on resource-saving processes, products and production processes. This is also documented by the environmental management certificate ISO 14001.

For example, our adhesives of the SIMALFA® series have made a decisive contribution to making it possible for thousands of tons of solvents to be substituted annually worldwide. As a result, our adhesives have become established in the foam industry as the international standard and we export today worldwide in over 90 countries.

SME prize of the Zürcher Kantonalbank

We are proud to announce that on 28 January 2015 we won the Zürcher Kantonalbank SME prize. The SME prize annually honours small and medium-sized Swiss companies that have made an outstanding contribution to sustainable development as part of their corporate activity.

The prize means a great deal to us and confirms that we are on the right track with our products and innovations. Ever since the foundation of the company over 40 years ago we have relied exclusively on environmentally-friendly solvent-free adhesives and developed them continuously. Responsibility towards our environment is at the centre of our daily work in this respect and is deeply anchored in the company’s culture.

“The Sustainability Prize confirms us in our strategy to rely on environmentally-friendly products and in this way make the world a little better. Through this award, we feel confirmed in the vision of our daily work and the long-cherished dream of recognition of our daily work has been fulfilled. The motivation to go further along this road has been reinforced and we accept this obligation,” explained CEO Thomas Simmler.

The Zürcher Kantonalbank’s SME prize that we won and the continuously rising demand for our environmentally-friendly products have encouraged us in the way we do our day-to-day work. In this way, we show our thanks to the Zürcher Kantonalbank, and all of our customers and partners, for their trust in us.

Climate-neutral transports with myclimate

myclimateAs an environmentally-conscious industrial company, we seized the opportunity to carry out these transports in a CO2-neutral manner together with our domestic refuse disposal partner.

This means: emissions that arise as a result of the transport of our refuse and materials are reduced in developing and emerging markets through the substitution of fossil energy sources by renewable energy or energy efficiency measures.
