Around 450 years ago, German foresters invented the concept of sustainability to ensure a consistent supply of wood for the mining industry. The forestry scientist G.L. Hartwig defined sustainability, more simply put, as "Never harvesting more wood than can be re-grown".
We, the Gebr. Brill Substrate GmbH & Co. KG, feel obligated to live the idea of sustainability. We want to protect the economic and social interests that our clients and employees are entitled to while at the same time safeguarding our natural livelihood. As a family owned business, we want to achieve these goals on a long term basis and also for future genrations.
We understand sustainability to be an all encompassing concept that goes beyond our sustainable product strategy. We include social responsibility in our business strategy just as we do our environmental responsibility. Sustainability is of the utmost importance to us, which is why we give it its own section on our website: Responsability.
