At Materialise we are continually searching for new ways to improve sustainability at several levels, both internally and externally. Whether it’s ensuring ethical employment practice and business processes or empowering meaningful applications of 3D printing, Materialise is committed to foster sustainability both within and outside our walls.
We believe that sustainability should start right where we work. That’s why we have some initiatives in-house that will help us achieve these goals, including a Supplier Code of Conduct, to hold our suppliers accountable to the same standards we expect from ourselves; an Environmental Management System; and Anti-Discrimination Hiring Policies; and more initiatives on the way.
Externally, we work with NGOs and other non-profit organizations through The Materialise Foundation. One example, our annual fundraising for the Benin Summer School, granting scholarships to Beninese students with management potential, is very close to our heart.
