  • Nachhaltigkeit Sustainability statement
  • Sustainability

    Sustainable activity lies at the heart of all our processes at Botanica. In all aspects of our work, we continually ask ourselves what we can do to act in a more ecological, environmentally-conscious and fairer way. We use our sustainability certification CSE (Certified Sustainable Economics) including ISO 14001, as a basis for acting in a sustainable way. Our ecological, economic and social objectives are coordinated with one another.


Botanica only uses sustainable electricity and takes account of energy efficiency when purchasing new equipment. Most of our waste is taken to the recycling plant, and we offset our use of non-renewable energy as much as possible. At least 75% of our products are entirely natural, and raw materials are used from sustainable sources. We also prefer to use packaging and consumables made from recycled materials.


Botanica is investing in building on its knowledge and technologies, in order to generate moderate and continuous growth. In our production and development processes, we also prefer to use environmentally friendly and sustainable resources.
Customers and suppliers are valued as important partners and close collaboration with them forms the basis for success.


Botanica takes a flexible approach to its employees’ needs, such as organising working hours around other commitments, and responds to their wishes. Everyone takes a break together every day, and employee meetings and team events take place several times a year. Botanica provides its support in external training courses and further education and embodies an open and tolerant company culture.

CO2 compensation

Since the beginning of 2022, Botanica has been purchasing heating gas from 100% biogas, so that, together with the sustainable electricity, the company building and production are completely CO2 neutral without compensation. Gas is only used to support the heat pump. We also offset the CO2 of all employees' commuting.
In rural Nepal, wood is the most important energy source. But the population is growing fast and wood is becoming scarce. What is the solution? Waste from Nepal's most important industry of agriculture. Botanica supports through CO2 compensation the construction of new biogas plants, which turn dung into gas. This is used to cook on gas cookers.
