Sustainabilty Awards 2018
In the truest sense of the word 'sustainable', we have presented ourselves at the Sustain-ability Awards for the 4th year in succession. Once again, the result in 2018 is a memora-ble one. Nominated right away in 3 categories, we were awarded 2nd place in the “Social Excellence 2018” category. The jury praised our social commitment towards the men and women who work for uma as well as the social projects associated with our business ac-tivities, facilitating an optimum balance between family life and the world of work in Fischerbach.
7 nominations in 4 years, 2 first places in the categories of “Sustainable Product 2017” and “Social Initiative 2015” and a 2nd place are encouragement enough to continue our efforts along these lines.

With its RECYCLED PET PEN, uma has demonstrated that the end of the plastic bottle does not have to be The End. Old PET bottles are collected, washed and shredded. Then the resultant raw material is melted to form a granulate and is cast into moulds. This enables a 0.5 litre PET bottle to be turned into a uma RECYCLED PET PEN: robust, durable and attractive.
