Making corporate social responsibility a strategy driver

At Holland Colours we are dedicated to meeting our customers’ expectations of product performance. In our role as Caregiver, we also value our environment, human health and safety and promote social and economic development in the countries and communities in which we operate.

It is our belief that genuine Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is an integral element in ensuring business continuity and business success and consequently serves the interests of our internal and external stakeholders.

corporate social responsibility

Health and safety

We care about our employees’ health and safety and, therefore, incorporate employee health and safety goals in our sustainability targets, our organizational goals and our strategic ambitions. We hold a variety of ISO and other certificates for our locations, including ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001.

Our Core Values

Holland Colours is a company with over 400 employees who share the same core values: Accountability, Competence, Pro-Activeness, Responsibility and Teamwork. That’s us!

CSR reporting

Every year, we publish a Corporate Social Responsibility report setting out our efforts and progress in the material and sustainability topics we have defined. We base our CSR reporting on Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) - 4 guidelines. The most recent report can be found here. (Reporting year 2017/2018)


community programs

Community programs

We also believe in playing an active role in the community. We encourage and enable our employees to get involved in local community programs that will make a difference. One of the examples is our Laundry Project in Richmond (USA).

The Laundry Project helps less fortunate families by offering them free laundry facilities. In 2015, Holland Colours Americas helped 479 people, including 184 children, by providing 758 free laundry loads. Holland Colours also gave away laundry carts to help participants transport their laundry and provided volunteers to run the laundry days.
