Green chemistry

Over 95% of our raw materials are of renewable sources. In order to further reduce the environmental footprint of our finished products, we continuously focus on reducing energy consumption, minimize waste, and improve recyclability.

Our product range is constantly evolving. Oleon strives to develop innovative products by combining excellent performance with renewable resources. In 2020, 80% of our new products were made primarily from renewable raw materials.

Oleon aims to work exclusively with suppliers who uphold the same standards and principles as we do with regards to sustainability and ethical behavior. We have established a Supplier code of Conduct in line with key international standards such as the ILO Conventions, the OECD Guiding Principles, the UNGC Principles and the Universal Declaration on Human Rights.

We strive to be transparent to all our stakeholders. Therefore, we are member of the collaborative platforms EcoVadis, CDP and Sedex. Customers can easily check our performance in terms of environment, fair business practices, labor practices, human rights and sustainable procurement.
Our number of work accidents decreased with 90% from 2012 to 2020. This was achieved due to our updated Safety Policy, the introduction of a risk analysis of our processes and the implementation of a safety culture assessment.
As member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) since 2007, we offer only RSPO Mass Balance certified products on the webshop.
