Our commitment


towards people and the environment

For MEHLER’s leadership, a responsible corporate management does not only include striving for economic success. The key to success lies far beyond that. For us, continues growth and economic progress are directly linked to a social and ecological responsiblity in accordance with our core values: commitment, reliability, integrity, compliance and transparency.

We do not tolerate any form of corruption and bribery and we comply with the legal anti-corruption laws and regulations. All our managers, executives and employees worldwide are commited to these principles. Our claim to conduct our business ethically and legally is inextricably tied to the way we behave in our daily work.

“Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality.”

Abraham Lincoln


The health and safety of our employees are just as important to us as product and process quality. Avoiding work accidents, almost accidents and environmental incidents are integral parts of our management system. We respect the fundamental rights of our employees, regardless of race, skin color, gender, religion and sexual orientation. We follow the ILO Convention 138 and strictly refuse child labor in all our locations. We promote intensive teamwork and create a climate for creativity and innovation. Well-founded information and training courses continuously qualify and motivate our employees.

Social commitment towards people in need is another important part of MEHLER’s corporate culture. We highly value the efforts of socially engaged, non-profitable organisations and support them regularly. With our donations, we are happy to make a small contribution to the following organisations:

Little heroes

The children and youth hospice Kleine Helden ‘Little Heroes’ accompanies seriously ill children and young people with limited life expectancies as well as their grieving siblings and relatives who have to say goodbye to their loved ones. With their outpatient service, the ‘Little Heroes’ support families with end-of-life care, psychosocial support, relief in daily life and grief counselling.

For us, they are great heroes who are a great help to affected families with their loving care and support.

CARISMA is an institution of the Caritas welfare association in Germany and offers professional advancement and personal development support for people with mental illnesses. Its aim is to ensure that people with mental illness can participate in working life and to prepare them for the transition to the general labor market. MEHLER supports CARISMA’s Café ‘bunt.Werk’ in Fulda, which is located on the company’s headquarters premises, and their employees with mental illnesses who work there.


A responsible treatment of the environment and its natural resources is a basic requirement in our entire supply chain. We pay high attention to the sustainable use of our planet’s natural resources and thus to a future worth living for us and for coming generations.

We are committed to protect the environment, including preventing environmental polution, complying with all relevant laws, standards and regulations that apply at the locations and continuously improving the management systems and associated services.
