Our aim is to offer added value to people outside and within our organisation.
Commitment to people, society and the environment is second nature to Flamco. We want to make a contribution to sustainable developments not only in our products but also in the way we do business. Quality, Service and Advice are the values we express to our customers, as well as characteristics of our own internal organisation.
What makes Flamco an attractive employer? Employees develop in tandem with the progress in the organisation, because we are committed to them from the very start:
We periodically survey the satisfaction of our employees. Based on the feedback, we define follow-up activities in order to achieve an even higher level of satisfaction.
The Aalberts Way
Winning with People
We explore and make dreams happen.
We adapt, innovate and focus on our customers’ requirements and give them back so much more than they expect.
We are responsible for achieving our own commitments.
Proactive, accountable, and empowered to perform.
We are passionate, self-critical and persistent in everything we do.
We challenge the status quo, push boundaries and think outside the box. And we deliver results.
We learn from each other by being professional and open-minded.
We get better every day. We are not afraid of failure. In fact, we embrace it as a valuable stop on the route to success.
We lead by example, act transparently and speak up.
We are professional at all times, and in everything we do.
Central introduction – All new employees, in whichever country they work, are invited to a central introduction. Our CEO wants to get personally acquainted with new colleagues.
Product training – All new employees undergo basic product training. We think it is important that everybody who works in Flamco knows which products we manufacture and sell.
Advanced product training – All sales employees around the world get the same advanced product training. This gives them the opportunity to develop additional knowledge and knowhow about our products and their areas of application. The result is that our clients receive excellent advice.
Talent management and development – Flamco stimulates talent development. Horizontal and vertical broadening of functions is important in this, which guarantees good managers and specialists also in the future.
Individual and central training programmes – This depends on wishes and needs. This topic is standardly raised in the annual performance assesments.
Our commitment to society is expressed in various ways and at different moments:
The daily operational management takes the environment and other environmental aspects into account. Practical examples of this are the use of sustainable energy and the separation of waste collection. If possible, we use products that are not harmful (or less harmful) to the environment. We comply with legal rules and regulations. And in addition to the ISO 9001 certificate we also have the ISO 14001 certificate. Flamco employs a Quality, Safety, Health, Environment (QSHE) manager who ensures that these topics are always on the agenda.
Annually, Flamco’s Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissionseare measured and recorded in an emissions report. Therefore, the CO2 footprint is a useful tool to acquire knowledge about the current performance in terms of emissions of carbon dioxide. Use of this information enables specific actions to be carried out to reduce such emissions.
Flamco emitted a total of 4,809 tonnes of CO2 in 2017. These CO2 emissions are divided into 3 scopes pursuant to ISO14064-1, which is based on the Greenhouse Gas Protocol. In 2017, 1,670 tonnes of CO2 were allocated to scope 1, 2,905 tonnes of CO2 to scope 2 and 234 tonnes of CO2 to scope 3.
Emissions in 2016 amounted to 5,012 tonnes of CO2. CO2 emissions in 2017 were thus 203 tonnes lower than in 2016. We are proud of this result, especially in view of the fact that the organisation is growing.
Direct CO2 emissions
This can directly be addressed by Flamco, including activities such as combustion of fossil fuels during the production process.
Addressed to Flamco, but the emission is not emitted within Flamco herself. For example, energy use.
Other indirect CO2 emissions
This includes emissions resulting from business travel by air or road.

The code of conduct defines our work principles and how we conduct our business and it constitutes a solid foundation for ethically, judicially and socially based actions.
