Describe your business model (including type of company, products / services)

We Supply People. For a Clean and Safe World.

igefa is a corporation offering a unique Supply Solution through a full range of premium-quality products for cleaning and hygiene, catering products, guest amenities as well as personal protective equipment and medical assortments to customers nationwide as well as in Europe.

Our offer encompasses an unrivalled service that contributes to supply chain process optimisation and cost savings for customers. Our value added service is based on a long-term partnership approach, carefully tailored to the circumstances of each customer, consisting of a combination of own logistics, efficient e-business solutions, trainings, seminars and consulting services.

igefa is a network of six independent family-owned company groups with 30 depots across Germany. This includes several central corporate organisations: 
igefa Handelsgesellschaft mbH & Co. KG is the management body for the network and igefa Zentrallogistik GmbH & Co. KG the central warehouse for all member companies.
igefa ProMedical GmbH offers medical products and consumables as well as unique logistics concepts for a clinical full supply with cost center and locker based modular delivery nationwide.
Furthermore, in June 2015 igefa has succeeded in joining the well-known occupational health and safety specialist Jesse into the network. Jesse GmbH & Co. KG supplies customers with a product range of more than 120.000 quality items in the areas of personal protective equipment (PPE), warehouse and operating equipment, tools, environmental protection as well as tubing, fittings and industrial equipment. Hence it fits well into the centre of excellence for occupational health and safety of the igefa service offering, in particular for industrial customers.

In 2015, a nationwide turnover of 776 Mio € was achieved which meant a growth of 6 percent to the previous year. The igefa companies all have a long tradition of solid growth and the sustainable continuance of these family businesses is their common goal.

Additional remarks (eg indication of external audit):

This declaration has been formulated by the heads of the igefa sustainability board and under the patronage of the igefa member of the board Wolfgang Eichler (see also criterion 5 Responsibility).

All statements in this declaration refer to igefa in Germany. It is explicitly mentioned where statements are also valid for igefa member companies abroad. Compared to previous years the performance indicators of the companies igefa ProMedical and Friedrich CliniCare could already largely be taken into account. 

As an active member of the UN Global Compact we are committed to continuously upholding and actively implementing the ten principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption within our sphere of influence as well as publicly reporting once a year about our progress in these areas.

With this Declaration of Compliance with the Sustainability Code we simultaneously fulfil our obligation of “Communication on Progress” towards the UN Global Compact.
