We realize that our services have a certain social impact. That is why it makes sense for us to do business in a sustainable and socially responsible manner. We cannot do this alone and that is why we actively work with our stakeholders to continuously improve. Our CSR policy is based on 3 pillars: Our People (social), Our World (planet) and our Company (profit).
Certainly with a view to the future, the design of outdoor space is increasingly focused on circular play and exercise space where sustainable materials predominate. With play elements that have the lowest possible footprint. Our range is characterized by craftsmanship and is designed with sustainability in mind. This is reflected in the products, both in the choice of materials and in the details. We can also proudly say that the majority of our products, as one of the few suppliers of play and exercise equipment, are produced and assembled in the Netherlands. The assembly and delivery of play equipment is also in-house. In this way we ensure employment in the Netherlands and guarantee knowledge about games. We strive to do business with local suppliers as much as possible in order to contribute to reducing our footprint.
We offer our employees a safe and trusted environment with varied work. People can develop themselves by learning new skills or gaining new knowledge through, for example, training courses through which they can develop. Our employment conditions are laid down in a company collective agreement.
We are aware of the role and responsibility we have with regard to society. That is why it is paramount for us to deliver good, sustainable and quality products and services. We are ISO 9001, ISO 14001, KOMO and VCA certified and produce environmentally conscious to minimize waste flows. When designing our devices, we take into account the recycling and reuse of materials. With such a durable quality that we guarantee a lifespan of at least 15 years.
Manufacturing cradle to cradle is in our DNA; for example, in the early 1980s we were the first company in the world to manufacture playground equipment made from recycled plastic. Many of these devices are still in use and many of these sustainable product lines from the first hour can still be used. Our wooden playground equipment is FSC® certified. As a member of the NEN-1176 / NEN-1177 standards committee for playground equipment and fall surfaces, we are committed to the development of safe playground equipment.
We provide guest lessons at schools and teacher training courses several times a year. We also regularly give workshops to secondary schools and technasia and internships are regularly offered. In this way we keep in touch with the needs and insights of future generations and we play a social role in society. We also facilitate annual knowledge days with the professional field and actively seek contact with our target groups through participation processes, events, workshops and guided tours.
