OUR VISION

To be at the heart of your life!

We constantly aspire to have a positive impact at every stage of people’s lives. By that we mean all people connected to us in any possible way: employees, customers, suppliers, partners, communities & society.

Many products in our day to day surroundings that improve our quality of life are made possible thanks to the materials and services that Ravago provides. We are the partner of choice to pursue the above because of our long term vision and loyal relationships, as well as our global reach and industry knowledge, and our recognition of each partner in the value chain.

Ravago will therefore invest in and develop businesses that have a noticeable presence in, and a positive impact on as many people as possible. Such as: improving everyone’s lives with our materials, from diapers at birth to medical equipment in hospitals. Going digital to make our customers’ lives easier. Creating a flexible, responsible and connected workplace for employees. Working hard to minimize the environmental impact of our materials. Being engaged towards the communities we’re active in.

OUR MISSION

Committed to our partners to create and deliver the most indispensable materials and services

In each role in the company, we put our partners first, as we believe they are key in what we do. Partners are our suppliers and customers, and all other organizations with whom we collaborate to achieve our mission and vision.

We recycle and manufacture materials to complete our portfolio and offer a state-of-the-art infrastructure for distribution through efficient supply chain, technical expertise and business support.

We are a one stop shop for our partner’s needs. The materials that we offer are plastics, rubbers, chemicals and building products. The services that we deliver are toll manufacturing, logistics and digital solutions. The final products produced thanks to our materials and services are essential and indispensable in people’s lives.

We recognize that our materials can harm the planet. However we have a sustainability pledge, and we communicate on the initiatives we do to improve and the aspiration we have in the coming years.

We also commit to investing in our diversified businesses and the partners we work with - we look at long term when developing the business, not short-term win. We acknowledge that increasing employee diversity is crucial for our future and that we are not there yet, our commitment is to be transparent on the initiatives.

We reassure continuous investments in respect for ethnicity, gender balance, and supporting different generations. We won’t judge colleagues and partners by what they look like, where they come from or what they believe in. Instead, we envision each colleague enriching the Ravago family and contributing to the diverse community that we represent.

We want to fulfill our mission with and through our people, by providing our people every day with a context in which they can learn, feel good and grow.

OUR VALUES

The values that define us

During its evolution, Ravago has always put relentless emphasis on its values: human focus, professionalism, entrepreneurship, and humility.

These are not just buzzwords, but the company’s core principles that define who we are, what we stand for, and how we want to be perceived. For us, staying loyal to who we are is crucial. Not only because this was Raf Van Gorp’s vision for the company, but because it has proven to be the foundation of Ravago’s success, and because it will define our future.

Ravago - Human Focus

HUMAN FOCUS

Our human focus involves a respectful and thoughtful approach toward people, both internally and externally. Every single employee contributes to creating a trusted, safe and collaborative environment that incorporates ethical behavior, caring for each other’s well- being, and respect for all aspects of diversity. The personal approach toward employees and other stakeholders enables the long-term relationships on which the company is built.

Ravago professionalism

PROFESSIONALISM

By our professional value, we combine sharp and entrepreneurial decision-making by not compromising our structure and professional attitude towards colleagues and important stakeholders. Professionalism implies holding yourself accountable for your actions, words and thoughts, never jeopardizing your moral compass along the way. This value is one of the foundations for long-term partnerships.

Ravago - Entrepeneurship

ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Our entrepreneurial value is based on the opportunity for each employee to create value for the company. Employees should be able to take initiative and go beyond their assigned scope of work to improve their professional environment, and they should feel empowered to do so. For entrepreneurship to work, failures should be viewed as learning opportunities in the professional scope. We only fail if we don’t try.

Ravago - Humility

HUMILITY

Humility is based on two interconnected principles: external discretion and internal pride. Ravago’s below- the-radar strategy is not only a personal choice of our family shareholder, but also a strategic decision. Also, this value recognizes internal successes and initiatives, encourages an environment where our people can thrive. Ravago’s business is based on long-term partnerships and this means that everyone should welcome others’ opinions and perspectives, where successes are celebrated together.

 

Ravago has taken multiple actions to verify the absence of forced labor,
slavery and human trafficking within its group and supply chain.
