Acting ecologically and socially: flustix joins the German Sustainable Business Association 1920 768 flustix

Ecology, social issues and economic efficiency belong together: This is proven by the German Sustainable Business Association BNW. Founded in 1992, the association differs from other classic business associations. Because the acting boards are not employees of the association, but personally liable partners, managing directors or owners of their own companies.

What does the association want?
Fair market conditions for future-oriented business. Driven by this purpose, the BNW makes its weight felt across parties and representatives from politics.

How big is the association?
In total, the members account for about 120,000 jobs. Members include renowned companies such as GLS Bank, Remondis, Weleda, Werner & Mertz (“Frosch”), Goldeimer, and now also flustix.

What are the association’s values?
The BNW forms the basis of the network of sustainable companies, green founders and social entrepreneurs. All members have sustainability embedded in the core of their business.

Sustainability and business are not contradictory

Why is flustix now involved with the BNW? Malte Biss, founder and CEO of flustix: “Sustainability and economy are not opposites. This is exactly the spirit in which we founded flustix. We are pleased to be part of such a progressive association, to be able to advance climate and environmental protection in harmony with the economy with like-minded people.”

How does flustix get involved?
Among other things, we license plastic-free products, and together with our partners, we test and certify plastic goods for their recyclability and recycled components. The flustix seal is one of the few Europe-wide recognized signs on the subject of plastic sustainability. We also see ourselves as educators: in our monthly newsletter, we report on inspiring innovations as well as on the increasing cases of greenwashing, and also offer practical service tips for consumers. The newsletter is available here for free.
