Sustainability INSPIRES.

We are GREEN.

By sustainability, we mean a fully comprehensive concept that makes our company as a whole more environmentally friendly and thus more livable too.

We want our whole corporate environment to be encompassed by our four-pillar concept:

  • Green products and sustainable service
  • Supporting employees in a sustainable way
  • Energy, climate and the environment – our own and that of our customers
  • Social commitment

We carry out a number of individual projects in these areas in order to develop and improve business processes, which, in turn, improve cooperation with our customers, corporate cohesion and environmental awareness among all of us.

As a trading company, we depend on having suppliers as our partners who share our commitment to making more sustainable products.

This includes the following:

  • Professional returns handling
    Our return rate is 0.43%. This means that every 235th item is returned. 75% of these are returned to sale after the incoming goods inspection.
  • Bubble wrap as filling material for package deliveries
    Bubble wrap is partly made of recycled polyethylene and is 100% recyclable. Its production saves energy and water: 99% air – 1% film.

RECA NORM is interested in a solid supplier base rather than superficial relationships. With our many services tailored to our customers’ individual needs, we are a partner to our customers.

Energy, climate & the environment
Photovoltaic system

Various sustainable and environmentally friendly individual issues that improve the business world.

  • Replacement of all office lamps with LEDs
  • Apple juice
    We press our own apple juice for customers in our branches and for our employees using apple trees on our company premises.
  • Insect hotel
    Insects can find a home in insect hotels we’ve installed.
  • Sunlight turned into green electricity
    We are operating a 300-kWp photovoltaic system at our Kupferzell location. That’s 1104 modules covering a quarter of our on-site power needs.
  • Tree planting
    In a fundraising drive for Bergwaldprojekt e.V., our customers donated a total of 206 trees. This means that, together with Bergwaldprojekt e.V from Würzburg, who are working across Germany on reforestation, care and maintenance of existing forests, RECA have made an important contribution to forests and the climate:
    535 tonnes of CO2have been absorbed by 206 silver firs
  • Waste separation
    In our office and warehouse, we also separate municipal waste (general waste) into organics, plastics and true waste. This has allowed us to reduce municipal waste by one tonne in six months.
Electronic invoicing
Paper stack

Your invoices will be sent to you by email in the form of a PDF document. The technical requirements for you are limited to an email program (e.g. Microsoft Outlook) and a PDF reader (e.g. Adobe Acrobat Reader).

All of the benefits at a glance

  • Protecting the environment
  • The service is free of charge
  • Compliance with tax regulations
  • Independence from third parties – no loss of documents in the post
  • Simplify archiving (in original state for tax reasons)
  • Invoices can easily be distributed internally for approval via email

This change has allowed the number of invoices sent by post to be reduced by half and nearly 750,000 sheets of paper to be saved in 2020.
