We put expertise and passion into developing and producing baby products that impress thanks to their outstanding safety and quality, and support the healthy development of babies. A sustainable and responsible approach to business is a fundamental part of this and is firmly set out in our company values. At MAM, we contribute actively to implementing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations, which promote an agenda for sustainable development to be achieved by 2030. The SDGs constitute an important guideline for our Sustainability Strategy.
Our mission—at the heart of everything we do—is to not only enhance the happiness and well-being of babies today but to also create a world worth living in for future generations.
PP that can be traced back to bio-circular raw materials has exactly the same properties as fossil-based polypropylene in terms of safety, heat resistance, and break resistance. More MAM products will also be switched over to this synthetic material in the future.
When it comes to procuring plastics, we take what is known as the mass balance approach.
The more companies follow our example, the higher the proportion of bio-circular materials will become and the less companies will need to resort to the use of fossil raw materials. We are also planning to switch more products over to bio-circular materials in the future—a key step toward decarbonizing our company.
Since 2019, we have been working hard on targeted measures to make our packaging more eco-friendly as well. For us, reducing our ecological footprint and boosting recyclability are an especially important part of this. Right now, 76 percent of our packaging materials are either recycled, renewable, or procured in a responsible manner—and we are working continually to increase this percentage.
Here are a few measures we have already implemented:
The supply chain for the individual parts of our products offers huge potential for reducing CO2 emissions. That's why we work with suppliers who place the same priority on sustainability that we do at MAM. We procure approx. 97% of our product components from Austrian suppliers who guarantee short transport routes to our plant in Hungary.
We make every effort to keep CO2 emissions in our production plants as low as possible. These efforts are supported by renewable energy generated by our photovoltaic systems (PV) installed at the MAM plants as well as a wide range of measures aimed at saving energy.
We assume social responsibility for our employees and society. We pay attention to our employees' needs and well-being, and promote fairness and equality of opportunity. We contribute to society at the global level through our commitment in the areas of baby health and product safety and our involvement on behalf of socially disadvantaged children and families.
Innovation and progress can only happen where employees feel comfortable. Topics such as support for employees and additional benefits have been a top priority at MAM right from the start. We guarantee safe working conditions at our plants and sites, and offer a variety of services that promote the health of our employees. Extended accident and health insurance coverage, vaccinations in the office, and regular health checks are just a few of the services MAM offers its employees. We also promote our employees' physical fitness and team spirit by hosting sports activities such as hiking days and running events. Over the years, we have expanded the benefits we offer our employees to create a more professional portfolio.
