Quality & Environment


The amount of plastic marine litter in oceans and seas is growing, to the detriment of ecosystems, biodiversity and potentially human health, and causes widespread concern. At the same time, valuable material that could be brought back into the economy is lost, once littered. Single Use Plastic (SUP) items represent about half of all marine litter items found on European beaches by counts. (Reference: Proposal for a DIRECTIVE OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL on the reduction of the impact of certain plastic products on the environment, 28/05/1018)

Of course, products made from renewable raw materials should  never be carelessly discarded in our nature but correctly disposed of as biodegradable waste.



Quality and environmental management are our top priorities. This applies both to our products and also to our production processes. We guarantee our customers quality of the very highest order thanks to our integrated management system, which is certified to ISO 9001:2015 and FSC®.

We have additionally introduced hygiene management to the BRC standard.




In a world of rising energy demands and environmental awareness, we cannot afford unnecessary waste. Electricity from renewable energy sources, often known as “green electricity”, is becoming more and more important in the market. HOSTI only uses electricity which is 100% certified as coming from renewable energy sources.

Germany is one of the top producers and consumers of paper. Wood is needed wherever paper is processed. Millions of tonnes of pulp, paper and cardboard are imported to Germany every year – it is hard to imagine how many trees need to be felled for this.


However, we have joined a movement that focuses on sustainable forestry. The idea is that woods should not just be felled to produce paper and then left dormant, but that steps should be taken to conserve the woods and handle resources responsibly in the forestry sector.

The “Forest Stewardship Council” (FSC®) has set out strict criteria that serve to ensure that uncontrolled deforestation, violations of human rights and pollution of the environment are avoided. HOSTI also observes these exacting ecological, economic and social criteria during production.

In the production chain, HOSTI is now a FSC®-certified company.

In this way, HOSTI is making an active contribution to ensuring sustainable forestry
practices and to achieving important social goals for those employed in the forestry sector, especially in the third world.
