Our social and political commitment

Beyond the limits of our company, we are actively working for the planet.
Going even further

For a greener future, we believe that we must act beyond the company's boundariess. To do this, we share our vision with institutions, politicians and industrialists and we support associations and NGOs. Our employees, convinced by our vision, are also involved in associations, working groups, committees or political organisations.

Acting at national and European level

Reaching out to institutions

The Werner & Mertz Group is committed to consistent environmental and climate protection at national and European level. We fight for climate protection, biodiversity and the circular economy to always be a priority and for legislation to be strengthened. We believe that it is the duty of policy makers to create a legal framework for a bold and forward-looking climate and environmental policy. By participating in international conferences on environmental and climate protection, we promote our vision on an international level. We were for example present at the Our Oceans conference in Malta, the G20 workshop in Berlin, the G7 summit or the European Commission conference Unwrapping the Package - Europe on the Way to a Circular Economy.

Moving the political lines

We also support political measures for the environment like the European Commission's Green Deal, introduced in December 2019 setting up a circular economy for plastic packaging in the European Union and strict regulations for climate protection. In France, we are a signatory of the European Plastics Pact, a coalition of players aiming to optimise and rationalise the use and end-of-life of single-use plastic packaging and prevent plastic waste.

We are convinced that we can make a positive contribution to environmental protection.

Committed partners

To further its commitment, Rainett and the Werner & Mertz Group support associations and NGOs that share the same values and objectives regarding the preservation of the environment, biodiversity and health. Through joint actions, such as participating in events or writing short health guides with ASEF, we strive to raise awareness and inform the general public.
