Anyone can talk about quality. But the quality standards of the HABA FAMILYGROUP are signed and sealed.
The HABA FAMILYGROUP has been awarded the title of the most family-friendly company in Upper Franconia by the Bavarian state government in its "Erfolgreich.Familienfreundlich" (Successful.Family-friendly) competition.
"At the HABA FAMILYGROUP, we work for the best target group in the world – children and their families. We're very happy to receive these two awards, as many of our employees are parents themselves. That’s why the compatibility of family and career is particularly important to us," Dr. Mario Wilhelm, Director Human Resources & Legal, was pleased to say.
The quality management standard is nationally and internationally recognized and widely used. It forms the basis for the company’s continuous internal improvement process and is a well-established tool for optimizing the company's performance. The standard DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 defines the minimum requirements of a quality management system. This process-oriented approach allows the company to monitor processes and compare target values with actual values. If any discrepancies are identified, measures for improvement and change are defined and planned.
The international environmental management standard DIN EN ISO 14001:2015 is a globally recognized list of requirements for environmental management. Its focus is on the ongoing improvement of a company's environmental performance that follows the plan - execute - control - optimize process. Certified companies set environmental targets and establish an operational environmental management system that helps to achieve these targets. Active environmental protection and sustainability have always been part of the philosophy of the HABA FAMILYGROUP.
Environmental protection and the associated economical use of energy have been part of the company's management for years. With the energy management system according to DIN EN ISO 50001:2018, the prerequisites are continuously created to consciously control energy consumption and to continuously improve energy-related performance. This is achieved by
the optimization of energy supply and generation,
the consideration of the energy efficiency of production facilities in procurement,
the economical use of energy in all production areas,
promoting the use of renewable energies,
the reduction of CO2 emissions.
Sustainability is a central part of the corporate philosophy - the "Leschenhof" office building, completed at the end of 2012, also stands in this tradition and was awarded the gold certificate by the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB). The certificate is a voluntary national and international standard for the classification of eco-friendly, resource-saving and sustainable buildings. The office building of the HABA FAMILYGROUP meets 84.6% of the assessment criteria and is therefore one of the top 20 buildings certified with gold in Germany.
The certificate was presented in the fall of 2014.
In the mid-1990s, the International Council of Toy Industries adopted a code of conduct. Among other things, it stipulates that toy manufacturers certified under the code must adhere to legally defined working hours, wage regulations and payments in the event of illness or pregnancy, i.e. adhere to humane working conditions. The code prohibits child, forced and prison labor. The HABA FAMILYGROUP works exclusively with manufacturers who comply with the ICTI code. The company has been committed to this since 2006.
