Supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Back in 1972 the "Club of Rome" issued its report "the limits to growth" which examined the five basic factors that determine and, in their interactions, ultimately limit growth on this planet.  These factors were population increase, agricultural production, nonrenewable resource depletion, industrial output, and pollution generation. Even so, the report received mixed reviews it already addressed the need for a responsible behavior.  Today,  stakeholders like consumers, employees, investors, suppliers, communities etc. have high expectations for true corporate responsibility. Therefore, responsible business conduct becomes more and more mainstream.  The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals provide companies with a responsibility framework and acts as a guidline. 

With reference to the sustainable development goals, Tanovis concentrates on the following areas to guide our responsibility actions:

Improving health by reducing risk sources

Tanovis is helping to reduce the use of antibiotics in the livestock industry. This will ultimately benefit the consumer.    

Responsible employer

Equal rights are the basis for a motivated and committed workforce and is an integral part of the company.

Innovation and sustainable products

We focus on resource efficiency in the value chain and intelligent design and use of the products. By reducing the use of petrochemicals in different applications and consumer products and by replacing them with renewables, the total carbon footprint is reduced and the environment less burdened.

Circular economy

We aim to increase the share of renewable and recycled raw materials and explore possibilities for reuse and recycling.

Our feedstock material comes from agro-residues which otherwise would often be burned, consequently lowering the carbon footprint.
