In an industry devoted to providing the right solutions to consumers for their personal hygiene needs, it is no secret that the most convenient and socially acceptable are single-use items. Many producers and their trusted partners, including Bostik, are designing and launching more environmentally sustainable solutions. All whilst embracing sustainability in their own operations.
Collaboration is key to success, reaching common goals, and tackling challenges of sustainable development. As is taking a holistic approach to the topic. Working together, producers and the right suppliers can craft solutions to help deliver a positive impact for a more sustainable world and their businesses.
Attaching yourselves to a responsible bonding solutions provider
Achieving sustainable growth that keeps the health and well-being of people, profits, and planet at the forefront takes teamwork. With a well-thought-out CSR plan—implemented simply, consistently, and with care—realistic and sustainable results are achievable.
With this in mind, Bostik introduced its ‘Responsibly for Hygiene’ programme of webinars, podcasts, online content, and product launches.
Bostik, the adhesive solutions division of Arkema, has a proven track record of delivering industry firsts. When it comes to sustainability, it has the unique ability to deliver solutions and support by drawing from the vast knowledge, expertise, and undertakings of its parent, a member of the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index.
“We have a strategic or direct contribution to several United Nations Sustainable Development Goals,” explains Christophe Morel-Fourrier, Bostik’s Global Marketing Manager, Market Insights and Sustainable Innovation. “These include responsible consumption and production, climate action, and good health and well-being, as they connect to our disposable hygiene adhesives business.
“Sustainability is a key consideration in our disposable hygiene adhesive innovations, especially our upcoming series of new product launches,” he notes. “We also carefully consider how our choices for processing, production, and end-of-life impact the sustainability goals of our customers and the expectations of consumers.”
CSR support that’s on-topic, online, and on-demand
‘Responsibly for Hygiene’ highlights Bostik’s CSR policy aimed at creating value for all stakeholders based on:
1. An offering of Sustainable Solutions driven by innovation
2. A commitment to act as a Responsible Manufacturer
3. An Open Dialogue with internal and external stakeholders
A variety of sustainability and CSR-focused content is available on Bostik’s website. Additional resources, including an eight-instalment webinar series is open for registration, and upcoming episodes of Bostik’s ‘Attached to Hygiene’ podcast will be dedicated to CSR and sustainability topics.
“Delivering information and resources demonstrates Bostik’s commitment to customers, consumers, and the causes,” says Morel-Fourrier. “‘Responsibly for Hygiene’ further enables producers at all levels to expand their CSR and sustainability knowledge and make decisions supported by our holistic approach to the topic.”
