RKW’s Three Dimensions of Sustainability

As a leading film manufacturer, RKW assumes responsibility for a habitable environment. Sustainability is therefore a key component in our corporate policy and business mission.

We live sustainability based on a three-fold approach: ecology, economy and society. These aspects govern our proactive behavior —driven by the commitment of a responsible and successful company. We are convinced that environmental protection, high economic performance and social accountability are inseparably connected.
