Acting responsibly for a secure future

Sustaining the natural environment is an absolute necessity for present and future generations. At Follmann we have taken on this task and view sustainable economic management as a holistic concept for the future.

After all, the long-term success of our company depends solely on the responsible use of natural resources in the interest of future generations. Learn more about our sustainability policy!   

As a responsibly managed company, we provide our employees with the necessary principles and rules for correct and independent conduct. Our Code of Conduct, which is based on our principles and values, sets out the expectations of the Group as an employer, and is binding for conduct within the context of business transactions.

Our state-of-the-art research and development facilities mean we can guarantee a very high product and quality standard. With their know-how and many years of experience, our employees solve complex problems by working in interdisciplinary teams and ensure tailor-made solutions for every task. Because the environment is also a matter close to our hearts, the responsible use of energy in accordance with the energy management system (ISO 50001) and compliance with certified quality and environment standards (ISO 9001, ISO 14001) is a matter of course for us. Throughout the product life cycle, we also take into consideration the conservation of resources and the reduction of environmental pollution.

In the 2018 Sustainability Report, we provide our customers, suppliers, the authorities and interested members of the public with detailed information regarding the current situation and measures used in environmental protection.


As a company active in the chemicals industry, we are aware of our responsibility and we support the chemical industry's "Responsible Care“ initiative, which promotes acting responsibly for a secure future.
