Sustainability is a central component of our corporate management. For us, this means creating added value, a "PLUS", on an economic, ecological and social level. This includes the conscientious use of resources and responsibility towards future generations, as well as the continuous development of innovative products that reduce the burden on the environment and improve our customers' processes.
This is why we are also committed to the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which extend to the year 2030 and are intended to promote sustainable development worldwide.
Innovation and company award 2021
In July 2021, Zeller+Gmelin received the Innovation and Company Award 2021 for two innovative products: an LED-curing printing ink series for food packaging and the Divinol Aqua Chain Fluid.
By developing the low-migration UVALUX U581 LED offset ink series, Zeller+Gmelin has succeeded in developing an environmentally conscious and resource-saving printing ink that offers both economic and ecological benefits.
Divinol Aqua Chain Fluid is a water-based chainsaw fluid for chainsaws. The use of harmless raw materials reduces both the strain on workers and the impact on the environment.
The two award-winning innovations and their development history are presented in two great videos with lots of background information.
Best practice energy management (2020)
Together with Umwelttechnik BW, Zeller+Gmelin produced a video on energy management and climate neutrality at the end of 2020. Umwelttechnik BW is a partner in the EU INNOVEAS project. The project aims to make small and medium-sized companies aware of the benefits of energy audits and energy management.
In addition, SMEs are shown best-practice examples of how they too can contribute to climate protection with well thought-out energy and climate management. Zeller+Gmelin stands here as a best-practice example for the chemical industry cluster. Via INNOVEAS, the film will be broadcast not only throughout Germany, but also throughout Europe.
