Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility

PodoPrinter BV recognized that to succeed in today’s global marketplace, corporate social responsibility must be embedded in the way we do business. It is our vision to integrate the environmental, social, and economic dimensions of sustainability into our core business strategy by ensuring that throughout our business we have a deep understanding of the megatrends that will affect our company, and society at large, for the next several decades. Our response to these megatrends must be integrated into our business’s processes, tools, and priorities.

These megatrends should not be seen as a threat, but seen as an opportunity to adapt, change and grow our business. We will integrate sustainability into our company DNA by linking it to our core strategy of material development and increasing our B2B reach. It expresses the way we think, behave and act on sustainability – every day, again and again. We are proud to say that we have a Corporate Social Responsibility policy which support the 17 interlinked United Nations global goals designed to be a “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all”.

We acknowledge that to achieve long-term sustainable social responsibility we need to work with suppliers, employees, partners and always be customer centric. We describe sustainable social responsibility as a journey for our business that requires continuous learning, adaptation, and improvement of our basic business processes and our response to the priorities of our diverse stakeholders. We are working to optimize our impact, re-evaluate our priorities, and ensure that we are viewing our core business strategy through the lens of social responsibility.

We organize the Corporate Social Responsibility around 6 core subjects:

  • 1.#Respect for the Environment
  • 2.#Role in the Society
  • 3.#Our Company Values
  • 4.#Customer Relations
  • 5.#Responsible Employer
  • 6.#Fair Business Practices

The company values “Eager to learn”, “Passionate” and “Brave” very early shaped PodoPrinter. Thus leading to its successes. This history of successes and the values on which it rests will also shape us in the future. We will master our challenges how big or small they are whilst living these company values in mind and heart.

 

 

1. #Respect for the Environment

1.1 Policy

Prevention of Pollution: we shall store hazardous and combustible materials in safe, secure and ventilated areas in such a manner that they cannot escape or be accidentally released into the environment. Incompatible materials should be stored separately. All waste shall be stored to prevent its escape to the environment and disposed of in a safe and legal manner. We will make provisions for notifying the local community / authorities in case of accidental discharge or release of hazardous materials into the environment, or in the case of any other environmental emergency.

2. #Role in the Society

2.1 Policy

We believe that politics are responsible for a sustainable development of the well-being of people living in a weak environment but that companies have a responsibility as well. Because of that, we will work with local administrations and organizations to achieve community goals. We are careful not to trade for short-term profit, but always to keep an eye on the long-term nature of our actions. This is very important to us, whether in the area of the environment and sustainability, in dealing with the resources of the company or in the area of our social commitment.

Future innovators: Help nurture and inspire the next generation to develop skillsets within areas such as 3D technology, engineering craftmanship, material development and CAD/CAM design. We aim to do that by sharing expertise, inviting them to our premises, host events, making our company resources available for clinics and working with research institutes, schools and universities.

Charities and sponsoring: Our projects need to be charitable. Charitable means that the project funds/project resources need to benefit several people and not just a single person. A project is charitable, if a great amount of people benefits from the project and additional donations/earnings, if existing, are used only/exclusively for the project.

Social Projects: We know that we cannot solve all problems at once but that it is important to achieve little improvements constantly. We see ourselves as committed and responsible corporate citizen. As part of its socio-political responsibility, we are committed to non-profit institutions, projects and activities. As a value-based family business, we want to take on responsibility in the social sphere in the context of our social projects. We focus on supporting local communities with our CSR actions. Our commitment does not support a single person, but a community such as organizations for needy families, children and the elderly. We encourage individual employees to active, solidarity-based action. All employees are given the opportunity to contribute within the social projects. Not only can they suggest social projects every year, a participation of our employees within social projects is strongly recommended.

When donations are made, they are bound by criteria. In principle, the following criteria apply to the awarding of donations:

  • Neediness
  • Lasting impact
  • Transparency, that is, the recipient and concrete purpose must be known; the purpose-built use of the donations will be trolled;
  • No party donations;
  • No grant to organizations or entities that do not have universally accepted goals.

2.2 Goal

We understand that our actions and vision play a foundational role in ensuring the success of future generations. Progress requires that we invest in the regions and locations where we operate, building healthy, resilient communities. We provide financial and societal benefit to our communities through employment, direct and indirect economic stimulation from our business activities, as well as charitable giving and social responsibility initiatives.
Social projects mean much more than just product donations or financial support. We want to engage in projects together with our employees and support volunteer organizations or clubs nearby. This means that we want to become active in areas where we as PodoPrinter expertise is in demand. Our goal is to improve the wellbeing of those in need with a long-term impact.

We ask our employees to develop initiatives to support the „Corporate Citizenship” subject.

Our solution

How does a 3D insole printer work?

Our SOLE by PodoPrinter solution is a unique combination of a 3D belt printer, dedicated foaming filament and specialized insole CAD software. You can scan with almost any device, 2D or 3D scanners, and use our integrated easy workflow without knowledge of 3D printing. Simply with the push of a button. Black is the color we started with, but in the meantime, our 3D print filament is also available in colors like red, green and blue. The top of the insole can be provided with a cover, in case your customer prefers to have insoles with his own design.

What are the benefits of a SOLE by PodoPrinter, 3D insole printer compared to the traditional milling method?

The list of benefits is almost non-exhaustive. From loads of waste to almost no waste, when you compare this production method with the traditional milling machine. Imagine no longer needing to wear any safety clothing and there being no dust at all! The design time per pair is 2-3 minutes and a 24/7 unmanned production gives you extra time for your client. And yes, you can apply conventional glue and other materials to our 3D insole.

What can our 3D insole printer do for your client?

If you are a doctor, a podiatrist or a sports physical therapist, you will benefit from our innovative method of detailed production. A 3D printed insole can correct foot deformities, helping the foot or ankle function better or providing support to the ankle. It even reduces the risk of injury. Specialists may prescribe orthotics to treat a number of medical conditions. Examples are: Arthritis, which can cause discomfort in the feet and ankles or poor positioning that orthotics may help to correct. When poor positioning of the feet causes back pain due to a lack of cushioning or arches that roll inward, orthotics can lessen the pain. A person diagnosed with diabetes can lose sensation in their feet, also called diabetic neuropathy. Orthotics can help to reduce excess stress and pressure that can lead to foot ulcers. So, whether your client has a condition with a medical cause, or perhaps desires increased comfort, or even an improvement in their sport performance, SOLE by PodoPrinter is your solution.

How much does a SOLE by PodoPrinter cost?

Your financial Return On Investment of SOLE by PodoPrinter is an increase of turnover and a decrease of expenses. It is dependent on your business plan, country regulations and local health insurance. We provide support in developing your financial plan if needed. In addition, the 3D SOLE printer gives an ultimate professional look and feel to your practice. Show it to your client, be proud of your innovative working style!

Software PodoCAD

Our 3D Printer comes with dedicated software called PodoCAD. This software sends the data for the actual insole print from your scan device to the 3D printer. During the lifetime of your 3D printer, we will keep the firmware, needed for your print device, continuously up-to-date. New features based on customer requirements will be developed, and on a regular basis provided to the whole SOLE by PodoPrinter community. The moment you start working with your SOLE 3D printer, we will guide you through the process of installation and activation if required.

 

Let’s talk numbers!

The average weight of a 3D printed insole is 44g. Within 24 hours you can print 10 pairs of insoles, with a cycle time printing time per insole of 68 minutes. The SOLE by PodoPrinter prints 192 hours without loading filament and one spool of filament of 4.2 kg equals 46 pairs of insoles.
