We like plastic and hate plastic waste. Is that a paradox? No, quite the opposite.
The Röchling Foundation was founded in 1990 by the Röchling family. In almost 200 years, the same family has transformed a coal business into a leading global group of companies for innovative products made of high-performance plastic. The Röchlings therefore know where plastic belongs – and where it doesn’t.
Social responsibility has always shaped the history of the family and the company. The entrepreneurial family built up factory kindergartens and schools, milk kitchens, training opportunities, a pension fund and affordable housing even before Bismarck’s social legislation came into force.
The challenges have changed. The responsibility remains.
