The efficient handling of material and energy consumption in production is a challenge for many companies. Technologically, many good solutions are already known, but isn't there more? Yes! Especially the employees in production have a significant influence on the waste of resources and thus this place of value creation also offers a high savings potential for us.

Making the world a little better
We responsibly handle the resources of our planet and the people who live on it. We not only focus on the here and now but also think about the world of tomorrow.
At Insta, we firmly believe that youth play a crucial role in shaping a sustainable future. Their ideas and initiatives are invaluable - especially when it comes to protecting and preserving bees, like this time. For this reason, we promote our trainees' commitment to environmentally conscious action and encourage them to actively engage in sustainability.
During our first collection campaign, our employees collected a total of 25,640 crown corks, i.e. 51.28 kilograms! On 4 April, we handed over the collected crown caps to a collection point in Herscheid. The proceeds will go to the "Patientenhilfe Darmkrebs". We will continue to collect crown caps in the company and are sure to top the 51 kg next time.
In the last two weeks, numerous filled tubs and boxes of food donations and hygiene articles were collected for the Tafel Lüdenscheid. We would like to thank all employees who made the project a complete success with all their donations. We are proud that such initiatives are suggested by our colleagues and are just as well received.

Together with local companies and the regional association of South Westphalia of the Johanniter-Unfall-Hilfe, we were able to support a in the realisation of the interactive colouring and working brochure "First Aider of Tomorrow". 450 brochures were handed over to the kindergartens in our hometown of Lüdenscheid and now help to convey important contents and behavioural tips for emergency and first aid situations to children at an early age in a playful way. It is important to us that help can be given quickly in an emergency. That is why 129 people, almost one third of our staff, are trained as first aiders.
For the second year in a row, Insta GmbH is participating in reforestation in the region and is once again financing seedlings and a planting campaign. The new planting is to represent a broad spectrum of tree species to complement the emerging natural regeneration of larch and spruce.
