Embracing the future
TUBEX Corporate Social Responsibility

As a company with a history spanning more than seven decades, TUBEX Aluminium Tubes has developed strong bonds with customers and business partners all over the world. They know they can rely on us for our integrity and for the respect we show the environment and the individuals who work with us. We’re extremely grateful for these relationships. They put us in a strong position – a position from which we can move forward confidently and embrace everything that the future has to offer.

Our Commitment to
building a better future

When it comes to corporate social responsibility (CSR), we want to lead by example. That’s why we recently signed up to the UN Global Compact. Through this commitment, we will embrace ten universal principles covering human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption. We will also be helping to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), eigth of which will play a central role in shaping our company’s efforts to create a fairer and more sustainable world.

These eight SDGs will guide us on our sustainable pathway

They reflect the areas in which we can have the greatest impact. As a manufacturer, for instance, we can choose processes that protect the climate. As an employer, we can promote gender equality throughout the workplace and beyond. We are grateful that the SDGs provide such a powerful framework to guide us as we progress along this crucial pathway.

Thierry Bitout
CEO of TUBEX Aluminium Tubes
I am extremely proud that TUBEX Aluminium Tubes is joining the UN Global Compact. By becoming a participant, we are standing shoulder to shoulder with over 11,000 other companies worldwide that have aligned their strategies and operations with the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact. As a company, we understand that we don’t operate in a vacuum and that business success is not all that matters; we also have to take care of our workers, our communities, and the planet. With the UN Global Compact, we have found a strong framework for our CSR efforts and a powerful engine for action towards achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.

Our three CSR pillars

People
Environment
Business ecosystem

Our Corporate Social Responsibility is built on three pillars: people, environment and economy. Each pillar has a core statement that guides our efforts to operate in a socially, ecologically and economically responsible way.

People
Working with integrity every day

At TUBEX Aluminium Tubes, we take pride in the trust, integrity, reliability and innovation that we bring to our work every day. Our employees are the key to upholding these values and to maintaining the reputation that drives our long-term relationships with our suppliers, our customers and everyone in between. We are grateful to all the people who play a role in our company and we express that gratitude by working in a way that creates a positive impact both within our business community and further afield.

Promoting core values together

With our Code of Conduct, we have set out the principles that guide our work at TUBEX Aluminium Tubes. It reflects our awareness that our business activities must be mindful of their social and ecological impact, and respectful of the rights of the individuals involved. By following this Code, everyone in our company actively contributes to the success of TUBEX Aluminium Tubes and to a working environment which takes care of its people, its products and the planet.

Environment
Protecting the beauty of our planet

Our respect for the planet’s natural habitats is reflected in a deep commitment to conserving resources and reducing pollution. Every TUBEX Aluminium Tubes employee plays a role in consistently improving our environmental performance. We recognise that our supply chain, processes and products have both direct and indirect environmental impacts. Our aim is to identify them and find effective ways of eliminating or reducing them.

Driving the circular economy through innovation

Our Blue Tube range is a new kind of packaging for a world that is reassessing its relationship with resources and nature. The tubes maximize the use of recycled aluminium, minimize the use of materials, and give consumers the environmentally conscious packaging that they are increasingly seeking out. Created using an innovative and future-focused eco-design approach, the Blue Tube brand significantly cuts CO2 emissions and helps to drive the circular economy. This reflects our belief that growth must always go hand in hand with responsibility.

Combining growth with responsibility

By driving sustainable development and innovation both within our company and across the communities in which we operate, we are securing the long-term success of our products while protecting both people and the environment. We are actively helping to create a positive future for TUBEX Aluminium Tubes, our employees, our business partners and all of our customers. With our forward-looking packaging solutions and business operations built on trust and respect, we believe that TUBEX Aluminium Tubes has every reason to be excited about tomorrow and beyond.

Upholding values throughout
our supply chain
