Daily life at HARO focuses on sustainability and resource-friendly action.

Out of love for people and nature

Sustainability is one of the most important aspects in the history of our company stretching back over 150 years.

Ultimately, we work with one of the most wonderful resources that nature has to offer – the raw material wood. In appreciation of this gift of nature, we want to take care of the environment, protect it and preserve it for future generations.

Wood from PEFC-certified timber and forest management

The wood we use comes from PEFC-certified timber and forest management. PEFC is a transparent and independent system for ensuring sustainable, environmentally-friendly forest management and is certified according to the “Wald-TÜV”. The certification is performed independently and globally in accordance with very strict regulations. The most important criterion always is to ensure that only the amount of timber is taken from the forest that is regenerated.

Regional rather than international

While we export our floors worldwide, we take our responsibility as an environmentally-friendly manufacturer seriously when sourcing our raw materials by extensively using native wood species and wood from the local region. In this way we support our regional forestry, while at the same time ensuring short transport routes and easing the burden on the roads and the environment too thanks to our own rail link.

Sustainability throughout the entire value chain

Environmental protection has always been an integral aspect for our company at every stage in the value chain. This starts with the raw materials we use: We focus on optimising the raw material yield and always endeavour to fulfil the requirements of the Recycling and Waste Management Act (Kreislaufwirtschaftsgesetz) to the best possible extent. Our cutting-edge production technologies take account of important environmental aspects in every phase of production and thus contribute to ensuring especially sustainable and environmentally-friendly processes. Since 1971, we have been using the wood waste arising from our production to generate eco-friendly green energy. This not only benefits our company, rather we increase the proportion of renewable energy in our region too by feeding the excess energy into the public grid.

Hydroelectricity

We have our own hydropower plant on the company's premises. This means we use a further particularly environmentally-friendly and sustainable resource to generate electricity.

Outstanding environmental awareness

Sustainable development, environmentally-friendly action, long-term protection of nature and a highly developed sense of environmental and social responsibility are the most important factors for us in all of our decisions. This is palpable for every employee and every business partner who gets to know our company. It is also something that is well known to major institutions that honour businesses for their commitment to environmental protection. Back in 1998, Hamberger Flooring GmbH & Co. KG was one of the first sustainable companies in the wood processing industry to be certified under DIN EN 14001 and to be audited in accordance with the EU eco audit. Our products also bear the Blue Angel certificate, the environmental seal of the German government for environmentally-friendly products.

The moral of the story

Our environment concerns all of us. It is the space we live in, the home of people, animals and plants and the future of our children and grandchildren. Everything we can do to protect our environment, no matter how big or small, is a primary consideration for us. We therefore always acts responsibly, with respect for the environment and with an eye to the future.

This means you can always be sure with all Hamberger products that they fulfil our very strict objectives.
