Sustainability & Responsibility
As a graphical business, we and our customers are among the largest energy consumers and customers of wood products. That is why we have a special responsibility to our environment and subsequent generations.
As a company, we want to fulfil this special responsibility and also offer our customers the opportunity to assume responsibility themselves.
You can also take action by choosing FSC®-certified papers from sustainable forestry when printing your orders.
The efficient use of energy, responsible material procurement and a resource-conserving handling of material are the core points of our environmental philosophy. We utilise heat recovery to drastically reduce the use of fossil fuels.
We are FSC® certified
By using FSC-certified paper, we support an environmentally conscious, socially responsible and economically viable management of the forests. Compliance with strict FSC criteria is ensured by a complete control chain. For you and your customers, we document the use of this environmentally-friendly paper by imprinting the FSC seal.
Ask us about our FSC-certified papers.
When operations are to run like clockwork in a business, the workflows have to be well thought-out and coordinated. A core goal of ours is satisfied and healthy employees as well as safe and ergonomic workplaces. We therefore explicitly communicate with one another in order to constantly and actively contribute to improving working conditions.
Established 5S Programme
A 5S programme was established to keep order and cleanliness at a consistently high level and to constantly improve it. Hygiene guidelines are defined and are monitored and we live them as part of regular internal and external audits.
BÄHREN signs the Charta of Diversity!
Bähren Pharma-Packaging advocates an appreciative and unprejudiced work environment that values talent based on merit - regardless of age, ethnicity and nationality, gender and gender identity, physical and mental ability,
religion and ideology, sexual orientation and social origin. Recognizing and promoting diverse potential creates economic benefits for our organization.
That is why we signed the 'charta der vielfalt' (PDF)
Within the framework of the Diversity Charter, we will continue to:
- cultivate an organizational culture characterized by mutual respect and appreciation. We create the conditions for managers and employees to recognize, share and live these values. In doing so, they have a special obligation.
- review our HR processes and ensure that they reflect the diverse skills and talents of all employees and our performance aspirations.
- recognize diversity within and outside the organization, value the potential it contains, and use it profitably for the company or institution.
- make the charta contents topic of inner an outer dialog.
- provide public information on our activities and progress in promoting diversity and appreciation on an annual basis.
- inform our workforce about the added value of diversity and involve them in implementing the charter.
We are convinced: Living diversity and appreciating this diversity have a positive
impact on our organization and on society in Germany.
The Diversity Charter is an employer initiative to promote diversity in companies and institutions. Our former German Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel is patron. The initiative aims to advance the recognition, appreciation and inclusion of diversity in organizational culture in Germany. More than 3,900 companies and institutions have already signed the Diversity Charter.

Finally, we would also like to consciously draw everyone's attention to the General Equal Treatment Act once again:
The General Equal Treatment Act (AGG) has been in force since 2006.
§1 prohibits discrimination on these grounds:
- of everyone
