Sustainability and environmental protection.
We pay attention to the environment.
We place great emphasis on an environmentally friendly and sustainable approach. Did you know, for example, that HAGLEITNER produces its entire basic demand for electricity using a photovoltaic installation at the head office? Or that our highly concentrated dosage cleaners do not contain any NTA, EDTA or phosphates?
All dosing products in the kitchenHYGIENE and laundryHYGIENE are free of NTA, EDTA and phosphates. Instead, we use safe and environmentally friendly alternatives. We have designed our packaging so that packages can be transported in an environmentally friendly and space-saving manner. By using very high concentrations of active ingredient in the kitchenHYGIENE and laundryHYGIENE, we keep the water content low, and thus save several tons of CO2 every year.
During the contstruction of the new dispenser assembly plant, we paid particular attention to sustainability. In winter months, we use the excess process warmth of over 300 °C for our floor heating. A photovoltaic system on the roof of the production facility delivers the necessary electricity. To protect the surrounding waters and soil, the chemical production is embedded in a safe tub of liquid-tight concrete.
International award-winning products
For the ECO product line, the foamSOAP and foamSOAP PREMIUM hand soaps and the integral CLEAN concentrated detergents for kitchenHYGIENE, we were awarded the Austrian Ecolabel and the EU Ecolabel, the official environmental certificate of the European Union. Many of our paper products have been awarded the FSC seal for sustainable forestry or the EU Ecolabel – for example, the multiROLL paper towels, toilet papers and medCOVER physician’s rolls.

“Chemistry and nature: They appear to be opposites. And yet one comes from the other. Hagleitner builds awareness - with clean chemistry and clean production.”
