FLS Company N.V. has had sustainability on its agenda since 2010. In the meantime, the vehicle fleet includes solely environmentally friendly cars, we ask critical questions about how our POS (Point Of Sale) material is produced in China and we are intensively involved in promoting responsible alcohol consumption.
The manner in which we convey our responsibility to our employees is also an important part of corporate social responsibility: contributing to people’s development and growth and creating a good, safe workplace.
In talks with suppliers we try to optimise processes, for example, by making sure that semi-trucks are as full as possible when travelling between our bottlers and our distributers both nationally and internationally.
One of the characteristics of FLS Company N.V. is that we are an organisation whose main tasks are sales and marketing. Other activities are outsourced to third parties – such as the bottling of our products, handling of POS materials and the entire logistics process. This is their core business and we benefit from their expertise and economies of scale. We place very strict requirements on these third parties with regard to quality and efficiency. A number of partners also have several certificates or declarations. (add link with document that contains all partners and their certificates)
Furthermore, FLS Company N.V. is a member of the Foundation for Responsible Alcohol Consumption (Stichting Verantwoord Alcoholgebruik [STIVA]), and we actively promote responsible alcohol consumption, reduction of alcohol abuse, compliance with the legal drinking age, prevention of indirect alcohol provision and prevention of continued alcohol serving to inebriated persons. FLS Company N.V. also pays attention to the effect of discount promotions and alcohol in traffic. And, of course, FLS Company N.V. strictly complies with the Advertising Code for Alcoholic Beverages (Reclamecode voor Alcoholhoudende Drank).
