VESTOLIT receives IQNet SR 10 certificate


VESTOLIT receives IQNet SR 10 certificate

VESTOLIT GmbH has once again shown leadership. The PVC manufacturer based in Marl is one of the first companies in the industry to be certified by DQS, the German Association for the Certification of Management Systems, using to its new IQNet SR 10 standard. This certificate proves that VESTOLIT takes social responsibility. The standard assesses the way companies deal with their stakeholders. To mark its certification, VESTOLIT has launched an internal campaign to tell people that certification was successful and to motivate the workforce.


The IQNet SR 10 standard relates to the responsibility companies take for society. It demands that companies look at the concerns of their stakeholders. This encompasses everything affected directly or indirectly by corporate activities: employees, the environment, customers, suppliers & service providers, owners, authorities & organisations, community & society, and competitors. The aim of acting responsibly is to recognise what stakeholders require and want from the company and to respond within the company’s policy. In real terms this means things like environmental protection, fair competition and supporting social and regional projects. VESTOLIT, for instance, sponsors jerseys and balls for youth teams at local sports clubs. The company also supports the ‘Jugend forscht’ regional youth research competition in Marl.

Successful certification in compliance with IQNet SR 10 also involves realigning the company’s values, strategies and objectives to globally recognised principles of socially responsible action. VESTOLIT successfully achieved this on the basis of its parent company Mexichem’s Code of Ethics.

Campaign launched to motivate workforce
To mark certification, VESTOLIT launched a campaign entitled ‘RESPECT. Give it to get it’ so that it can position itself internally and externally as a socially responsible business.

Dr. Dieter Polte, managing director at VESTOLIT, is very proud of the auditors’ assessment and the campaign itself: “The work we did together was very successful. We would like to thank everyone involved and all of our committed colleagues. But it is not over yet. We continue to work according to our motto – anyone who stops improving, has ceased to be the best. That’s why our involvement does not end with certification. We always strive to keep improving”, says Dr. Dieter Polte.

The next external audit is due in November 2016, when VESTOLIT aims to demonstrate its social responsibility once again.
