Since the beginning of September, Castolin Eutectic is a ratified member of the United Nations Global Compact, a voluntary leadership platform for the development, implementation, and disclosure of responsible business practices. Based on the ten universal principles and the Sustainable Development Goals, the U.N. Global Compact pursues the vision of an inclusive and sustainable economy for the benefit of all people, communities, and markets, today and in the future.
“I am proud that Castolin Eutectic is now part of a leading group of companies that was accepted into the United Nations Global Compact—the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative—committing to push the boundaries of ESG and sustainability,” explains Patrick Fetzer, president and CEO of Castolin Eutectic.
Castolin Eutectic has already started several environmentally-friendly and people-centric action plans. Many of the products launched in recent years put the health and safety of operators’ first, for instance the EnDOtec Safe-hard 600 welding wire, exempt of chrome and nickel, or a new range of CMR-free brazing fluxes (carcinogenic, mutagenic and reprotoxic). The new welding wire presents reduced fumes emissions, zero risk of CrVI contamination, along with enhanced wear performance.
