For BUMAX, sustainability involves balancing economic success, environmental management and social progress to benefit all our stakeholders.
We do this by producing fasteners made from long-lasting and recyclable stainless steel, and by constantly working to improve our production and supply chain.
Our Sustainability Policies
Our sustainability agenda is primarily governed by our Environmental Policy, and Code of Conduct and the policies for employees, the environment and anti-corruption of our parent company Bufab. Bufab is a signatory to the UN Global Compact and we follow its principles.
