Sustainable production of rubber solutions with high demands on quality and know-how
In all respects we recognise the principles of the United Nations Global Compact regarding human rights, labor standards, environment and anti-corruption. We have incorporated the principles in all our activities and guidelines.
It is a matter of course for AVK GUMMI, AVK Sealing Technology, AVK Ravestein and AVK Elastomer Technology to be at the forefront of development and to ensure that all actions are in compliance with both national and international legislation.

Sustainability is one of our strategic values. Back in 1991, AVK GUMMI was not only among the first companies in Denmark, but also among the very first elastomer companies in the world to achieve ISO 14001 certification on the environmental management of our business.
We constantly strive to improve processes and optimise our elastomer compounds, enabling extended lifetime and reduced energy consumption. With 4 mixing lines and more than 150 moulding machines in operation, AVK GUMMI has a high consumption of electricity. Therefore, we aim to significantly replace purchased energy by internal renewals. In 2021, we took our first section of solar panels into use, and more have been installed since.
For more information, please see our sustainability report here:
In 2022, we began to map our business in accordance with the Green House Gas Protocol, including Scope 1, 2 and 3. This includes all in-house as well as upstream and downstream activities. With this additional tool we are now able to set more accurate targets for further environmental improvements.
Our goal is to continually reduce our CO2 emissions by substituting our raw materials to greener alternatives and by selecting sub-suppliers that actively focus on reducing their carbon footprint. We have initiated several measures in order to optimise our production processes and thereby reduce our consumption of electricity.
In line with our sustainability strategy, we offer advice and deliver complete solutions based on high-quality rubber components for demanding applications. The drinking water sector, the food industry, the energy sector, the healthcare and technical industries are our primary segments.
We produce injection moulded and compression moulded rubber components. Furthermore, we develop customised rubber compounds and rubber items that match your specific needs.
Finally, the product programme comprises many different composite components where rubber is vulcanised with other materials such as stainless steel, metal, PTFE and fabric.

Entering into a cooperation with a new customer, it is important for us to how a modern factory with robots, rubber mixers and injection moulding machines works.
Therefore, under normal circumstances, we are always happy to give you a guided factory tour – whether you are already familiar with our company or we have just met.
