A progressive lubricant company

Commitment to climate & environmental protection as well as social projects

The protection of the environment is high on our agenda. We can never totally dismiss the possibility that leakages during storage or transport occur. As a progressive company that runs their business with corporate responsibility we do our utmost to curb the risk of such occurrences by taking preventive measures.

Further to that we prefer to recommend environmentally friendly and economical products when presenting our Mabanol product range to resellers or end-users, hence offering sustainable alternatives to the products they have so far been using.

Also our social and environmental responsibilities go beyond our day-to-day business activities.

Commitment to climate protection

Our current environmental activities are underpinned by our commitment to "Initiative Pro Klima".

This initiative is constituted by a group of entrepreneurs operating in the oil & gas business and petrol station operators who joined forces to link the protection of the environment to their business activities. This commitment was underpinned by their support of the Initiative Pro Klima project.

The Initiative places the focus on three key segments: supplying efficient products, offering support on topics related to environmental issues and promoting climate research and climate protection projects (i.e. tree planting campaigns creating new and mixed forests, sponsoring of tree planting projects).

Our viewpoint is that climate protection needs to be more than a one-off project. We strive to continuously commit to practices that help protect the environment. The activities of Initiative Pro Klima ensure that regular campaigns are initiated and conducted, hence making a significant and responsible contribution to protect the climate and the environment.

Social projects coming to the fore

Further to the above we also commit ourselves to social projects. We are convinced to not only focus on our day-to-day business activities but also on entrepreneurial responsibilities.

Corporate Responsibility

Transparency, ethical principles, and lawful conduct are seen as important pillars of our corporate governance. Under the umbrella of the Petronord Group, we are part of the Mabanaft GmbH & Co. KG corporate network. Therefore, common compliance guidelines and instruments apply to us to ensure our principles and responsible behaviour. The focus is particularly on preventing corruption, bribery and fraud, as well as addressing issues of competition law, sanctions and misconduct towards employees.

Code of Conduct

Our shared Code of Conduct provides guidance for the behaviour of individuals, both for employees and for business partners and suppliers. It is based on the values and corporate philosophy of the corporate group. The code is designed to ensure compliance with legal regulations as well as binding corporate guidelines.

Whistleblower System

The online platform CARE (Concerns And REporting) is, in addition to our usual reporting channels, the reporting system of the Mabanaft corporate network. It offers employees and business partners a secure and uncomplicated way to report suspected misconduct. In case of violations of the Code of Conduct or internal guidelines (such as fraudulent behaviour, environmental damage or safety concerns), employees, business partners, and suppliers can anonymously report suspected misconduct via the CARE (Concerns and Reporting) online reporting system

Supply Chain Due Diligence Act

In 2024, the Supply Chain Due Diligence Act – abbreviated as LkSG – came into force. We see the LkSG not only as a binding legal obligation but also as a matter of course and a minimum standard in terms of our responsibility towards employees, customers and suppliers. Accordingly, as a company within the Mabanaft corporate network, the fundamental declaration adopted for the Mabanaft Group applies to us, providing comprehensive insight into the principles and standards made available.
