At Ferdinand Zandbergen B.V., we aim to be sustainable and socially responsible. We are continuously looking for the right balance between environment, people and society. Our focus is on ensuring better living conditions, both for mankind and animal.
Ever since the construction of our production facility, which was completed in 2008, Corporate Social Responsibility (or: sustainability) has been given a lot of thought. We feel involved with our employees, customers, suppliers, the environment and the society in which live and work.
Environment and society
A greener company in a greener world
Ferdinand Zandbergen B.V. organizes its production processes as effectively as possible, thus ensuring that its production capacity is used as optimally as possible. By being this efficient, we aim to reduce the ecological footprint - the global footprint of the company, our people and their families. Ferdinand Zandbergen B.V. is always keen on reducing the consumption of energy, materials and waste.Some of the measures taken to enhance sustainability at Ferdinand Zandbergen B.V. include:
Health and well-being
All our products are checked on a regular basis. These checks concern nutritional values (salt, fat, etc.) as well as hygiene standards. These checks help us to ensure that our products meet the highest standards of quality and food safety, perfectly suitable for human consumption.
Solar panel system
Ready for the future
We do take our ecological footprint very seriously. This is why we have renovated the roof of our production facility. Applying an extra layer of insolation helps us to further reduce our energy consumption and, as a consequence, our CO2 emissions.
We have installed solar panels on top of our new office in 2018 and our production facility in 2019. This generates clean (green) energy, which results in a reduction of our ecological footprint. The solar panels on our office alone will generate approximately 31,650 kWh per year; enough for an energy-neutral office. All the solar panels together produce 285,000 kWh per year.
We not only promote a family feeling among our people, we also try to provide a comfortable ambiance and encourage self-development. We invest in educations, internships and creating optimum working conditions. The latter relates to working climate as well as machinery and equipment.
In 2017 Ferdinand Zandbergen B.V. opened its brand-new sports facility. By giving our people the opportunity and facility to achieve their fitness goals and develop their physical abilities, we aim to bring them health and wellness.
