Sustainability

Our aim to slow things down and increase the feeling of security always leads us back to nature, which also offers us the resources we need. Although everyone knows that these resources are not infinite, relatively few people are serious in their efforts to protect them. As Blechrein is more than just a baking paper, we as a company were quick to identify that the need to slow things down and to bring about a greater sense of security begins with the little things in everyday life. We set ourselves the goal of maintaining these values.

Cherishing and respecting our natural environment is second nature for us and begins with the sourcing of our base paper. Most of our paper comes from PEFC-certified production, which guarantees sustainable forest management. We protect the environment that we love so that future generations will also be able to enjoy its beauty and the resources that are so important for us. This begins with our base paper and ends with the finished Blechrein products. How? Our products are made of fully recyclable paper and pulp, our work processes are certified in accordance with ISO 14001, and around a quarter of our annual power consumption is met by our own photovoltaic system. As well as working with renewable energy, it is of enormous importance for us to reduce pollutant emissions – which is why we installed an afterburning system back in 2010 with a view to reducing these emissions and minimising energy costs. This is inspected regularly by an independent assessor. 

Our promise to you is that we keep special things special – a promise that extends far beyond your baking experience.
