NEVEON Purpose


At NEVEON, we develop and produce standard and specialty foams in 300 different grades and process them into high-quality products for the comfort sector, the mobility sector, and a wide variety of special applications. As different as our foams and their areas of application are, they always have one common goal: they offer long-term added value, improve the energy balance in many contexts and make life more comfortable and safer. Yes, simply better!

And this is exactly where we at NEVEON see our purpose: We want to improve the quality of life of people worldwide with our products and services. To achieve this, we think outside the box and are never satisfied with the status quo. Curious and inquisitive, we shape progress by actively trying out new things and willingly going the extra mile.

Our Purpose. Our North Star.

At NEVEON, we see our purpose as the North Star. It defines our fundamental orientation. It is firmly anchored in us and gives us orientation and meaning along the following three dimensions: Economy, Ecology and Social.


As an integrated foam company, we deliver high-performance along the entire value chain. We generate growth for the benefit of our customers, employees, and shareholders. Financially strong and innovative, we actively drive our technological leadership forward and develop products that provide value added for our customers and improve lives worldwide.


The NEVEON Impact Strategy is our strategy for a better future. It is based on the Greiner AG Blue Plan and organized into three interconnected pillars: OUR PLANET, OUR PEOPLE, and OUR RESPONSIBILITY. For each of these pillars we have defined a vision for success and set measurable goals. In this way, we ensure to contribute concretely and as effectively as possible to a solidary and healthy future. 


Open-minded and appreciative cooperation founded on equality forms the basis of our activities and ensures a team characterized by high performance and positivity. We delight in diversity and regard it and inclusion as enriching. At the same time, we learn from mistakes, promote growth, and offer constructive feedback. Because, quite simply, our goals can only be achieved through shared commitment.

Rethinking Foam. Really? Yes, really!

At NEVEON, we're not afraid to challenge the status-quo when it comes to improving our products and services. We have numerous examples of how we drive innovation. Always with an eye on responsible action and the maxim of leaving a healthy and livable environment for present and future generations. For example, we have developed highly flame-retardant graphite foams that do not contain melamine or halogen-containing additives, and which, among many other advantages, are also lighter, resulting in an improved environmental footprint. We have successfully turned recycled polyols back into high-quality new foams, helping to close the loop on mattresses. We also use sustainably certified renewable raw materials and sustainably certified recycled materials in the value chain, thus conserving valuable finite resources. And we are also experimenting with 3D printing of foams. All of these are just a few examples of how we bring our corporate purpose to life.

Making Life Better. Hard to believe? Then let's check it out!

We all use foam every day and enjoy its benefits 24/7. When we wake up rested in our bed in the morning, we owe a restful night to comfortable foam mattresses. At the breakfast table, foams provide comfortable seating, and on the way to work, we owe them a comfortable travel experience on public transportation or in our car. In the engine compartment of our car, effective acoustic encapsulations reduce harmful noise, and in the office acoustic components contribute to a pleasant indoor climate. When we play sports after work, foams make the game more comfortable while protecting us from injury. And when we return home afterwards and find our heating bill in the mailbox, we can rejoice that the recently installed boiler insulation helps keep energy costs in check while protecting the environment. And these are just a few examples that show our lives would be pretty uncomfortable without foam.
