Our vision and strategy

Sustainable development goals

The Paris Climate negotiations (COP21, December 2015) and the launch of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs, September 2015) established a strategic framework for a better future. This collective willingness to take action inspires Ontex to turn today’s challenges into tomorrow’s opportunities.

Our most powerful contribution to society is made through our core operations and our value chain: through the jobs we create and sustain, through the nature of our products that fulfill a basic human need and that we offer at an accessible price, through the way we steward natural resources, and the high standards of responsible behavior that we set for ourselves right across our business.

Material sustainability topics

In 2016 we conducted an exercise to review our material issues. The launch of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) gave us a new framework to consider in this review.

More info about the process can be found back in the sustainability report.
