foams for a
better future

At NEVEON, as leading producers of 300 different grades of standard and specialty foams as well as products made from them for the comfort segment, the mobility sector, and a limitless variety of specialty applications, we take our social and environmental responsibilities seriously. As a result, designing sustainable products, establishing a circular economy, reducing emissions, and supporting a healthy organizational culture are at the heart of the standards we practice in our business and central to our 2028 company strategy.

We are committed to drive the sustainability transition in the foam industry. We’re building foam for a better planet, for a better life, for the future!

Foam in Service for Impact
Our strategy for the world of tomorrow

At NEVEON, we believe that developing sustainable products calls for creative thinking along the value chain and an ability to see the bigger picture. That is why we are committed to pursuing multiple approaches that consider every angle so that we can contribute toward a healthy future that offers a good quality of life. Our sustainability strategy is based on the Blue Plan set out by our parent company, Greiner AG. It is divided into three interconnected pillars: OUR PLANET, OUR PEOPLE, and OUR RESPONSIBILITY. For each of these pillars, we have defined a vision of success and set measurable targets. This is how we ensure that we contribute as concretely and effectively as possible to a solid and healthy future

OUR PLANET

NEVEON circular economy

Circular Economy

With the aim of becoming a fully circular business, we are taking a holistic approach to the topic. It starts with sustainable product design and the commitment to develop resource-efficient, durable, and recyclable products. The next focus is on preventing waste and converting our own production offcuts back into valuable composite foam products. And it culminates with the collaborative development of new, innovative recycling processes.

NEVEON Resource Efficiency

Resource Efficiency

We see the use of alternative, nonfossil raw materials as a major source of potential. At the same time, intelligent production planning also helps us to conserve resources, because we design our products to prevent waste. Rather than throwing away production offcuts, we convert them into valuable composite foam products.

NEVEON climate change

Combating Climate Change

Climate protection is one of the greatest challenges of our time. At NEVEON, we have set ourselves the goal of covering 100% of our operations' energy requirements from renewable energy sources by 2030 at the latest. We plan to reduce energy intensity by 15% by 2030 and increase the proportion of electrification to 60%, for which we will partly use our own photovoltaic systems. Our goal is to maximize the reuse of limited resources in all our business areas, products and supply chains by 2025 and beyond.

A safe, positive, and healthy environment is important to us. Internally, we ensure this is in place by steadily nurturing our organizational culture. From the product perspective, our certified low-odor and low-emission foams guarantee a pleasant indoor environment. 

NEVEON Social Responsibility

Even outside our core business, we try to make the world that little bit better. For example, we have been supporting the efforts of Viva con Agua and Welthungerhilfe to provide safe and sustainable supplies of drinking water in rural Malawi since 2021. We also provide aid to areas affected by war and disaster by donating materials (mattresses).
