A large proportion of the paints used in the company's own paint shops are water-based. The wooden surfaces are durable, nice to touch and look perfect. They also contribute to a positive ecological balance, as they sustainably protect and refine the renewable, natural raw material wood.

Just take a deep breath
Health is a mega trend. With Häcker's own standard PURemission AirProtectionSystem we surpass the best requirements for clean room air.
- Significantly lower deviation of formaldehyde limit values
- Even better room air
- Increase of quality of life
All wood products are well below the permissible formaldehyde limits, which meet high US standards. Through careful selection of wood materials and our suppliers, we have succeeded in meeting the guidelines for emissions in accordance with CARB2 93120 and TSCA title 6. The materials are subject to permanent monitoring and contain neither pesticides nor insecticides. We are also not aware of any other harmful emissions. The furniture is manufactured according to industrial methods and standards.
Energy & Environmental Policy
Environmental protection forms an important part of our corporate policy. Since our business activities influence the environment, it is our duty to minimize the impacts within the framework of our economic, organisational and technical possibilities, as well as sustainable processes.
Also our energy management system pursuant to DIN ISO 50001 contributes significantly to environmental protection. The systematic identification of weak points and above all the implementation of optimization measures, enables more efficient energy consumption in the company. This is also associated with a reduction in the direct and indirect CO2 emissions of the company.
Environmentally friendly material for cargo stabilisation
Usually, foam blocks and polystyrene sheets are used during transport to secure high-value cargo.
Häcker has a better way. The company's trailers are equipped with sturdy paper bags filled with cardboard waste to secure the load.
Educational project in Africa
Häcker promotes and supports the Youth Development Project (YDP) in Sierra Leone, Africa, where 200 children receive an excellent education. The level of knowledge of these dedicated students in grade 2 largely exceeds that of grade 6 students in local public schools.
More than 3200 miles separate Germany from Sierra Leone in Africa. In terms of their standard of living, however, the countries are worlds apart.
Charitable water Viva con Agua
Häcker supports Viva con Agua. Water for all, all for water. Häcker offers Viva con Agua in all meeting rooms. In addition, the vending machines of all plants are stocked with this charitable water brand.
We promote youth residential groups and day-care centers
One of many examples: Girls and boys aged between 9 and 17 years, who cannot live with their former families, found a new home in the Rödinghausen residential group. The youth welfare service takes care of the needs of children and adolescents, especially with regard to educational support.
Häcker supported the sponsor of the institution by donating a modern kitchen. In addition, Häcker provided kitchens for regional day-care centers to ensure that the children receive freshly prepared meals.
We promote sport
As part of our commitment to soccer, we support the region and promote youth work. Our dedication to the region is also reflected in the sponsorship of SV Rödinghausen.
