At Hakle, respect and responsibility for the environment, people, and nature mean sustainability.

We at Hakle have been producing high-quality hygiene paper for special comfort since 1928. Of course, the production process requires energy and water, which is why we consistently and constantly strive to protect the environment, people and nature. A sensitive corporate culture characterised by care and craftsmanship and the responsible selection of the raw materials used make this clear. The entire Hakle team always strives to push the limits of what is technologically feasible.

Hygiene and environment - no Contradiction.

Hygiene papers that are made from waste paper or recycled content are also produced to the highest standards. Only the best raw materials, which are obtained according to the ecological value system, can be the basis for a special product quality. The further the technology progresses, the better the haptic and functional quality of Hakle products becomes. A natural feeling of well-being is created from natural raw materials.

We take environmental, energy, and quality standards very seriously.

Energy sources such as electricity and water are needed for the production of hygiene paper. However, their use can be intelligently planned and technologically optimized. At Hakle, we are committed to pursuing a range of measures for responsible quality, energy and environmental management.

15% less electricity consumption in the last 7 years, 33% less water consumption in the last 5 years - these are measurable signs of a real environmental focus. Credible resource management that delivers what it promises. We are continuously working on the timely improvement of the quality and the optimal environmental compatibility of our products and production processes. For example, we only process paper raw materials from FSC-certified origin and of course occupational health and safety are our top priority.

In order to implement these principles optimally, we at Hakle work in a closed, integrated management system and meet numerous requirements. These include DIN EN ISO 9001:2015, DIN EN ISO 14001:2015, DIN EN ISO 50001:2018 and IFS HPC. Compliance with these standards is ensured at regular intervals by external inspection bodies in the form of comprehensive audits.
We also act socially sustainable: In addition to a special focus on our core values such as respect and equal treatment of all people, Hakle is socially committed to the disadvantaged and promotes art and culture.

Natural raw materials - for the sake of the environment.

All our hygiene products are made from natural, renewable wood fibres. This means that the pulp we buy comes from forests and plantations that are managed sustainably. The material used for production comes exclusively from FSC® and PEFC/04-31-2141 certified sources.

The selection of the pulp we purchase is based on a small risk assessment. On this basis, we select a small circle of factories that supply us with pulp. This includes Stora Enso, a pioneer of sustainable forestry. Stora Enso is one of the world’s leading suppliers of sustainable solutions for packaging, biomaterials, timber construction and paper. Stora Enso’s fiber-based materials are renewable, recyclable and fossil-free. This ensures that our tissue papers not only offer maximum comfort, but also meet our high standards of sustainability.

Breaking new ground - with fast-growing raw materials

In addition to the sustainable value chain of our fresh pulp, we at Hakle have always worked on the use of alternative raw materials, such as grass fibers. These or other alternative raw materials complement the paper mixture and thus reduce the pulp content in the final product. We were able to celebrate our first successes in this area with a kitchen towel made of a pulp-grass mixture and won the PPI (Pulp and Paper) Award in the Tissue category in March 2019. Away from slowly renewable raw materials - we see the future of tissue papers in regional, fast-growing raw materials and continue to set new standards with our flagship project "Sustainability".
