    Dear stakeholders,
    A very unusual, demanding and challenging year lies behind us that we will surely remember for many reasons for a long time. We believe that soon we will all together return to a normal and familiar way of living and conducting business, but some of the changes imposed on us by 2020 will certainly remain permanent.The global crisis caused by the COVID-19 virus pandemic around the world has also affected our company’s business. Realized operating revenue amounted to HRK 1.2 billion and was lower by 20.9 percent, but considering the circumstances and initial forecasts, the results we have been achieving are good. EBITDA in 2020 amounted to HRK 165.89 million and was lower by 16 percent and the realized net profit amounted to HRK 46.93 million at the Group level and recorded a decrease of 49.7 percent compared to the historically record 2019. In this Annual Report, we will acquaint you with the most important activities and results of 2020 in the fields of economy, society and the environment. The principles of sustainability are incorporated into all segments of our company’s business and aware of our impact, we are especially pleased with the achieved goals in not at all simple circumstances. The onset of the pandemic and the closure of our customers ’factories during March and April confronted us with unprecedented challenges full of uncertainty. As a result, we ourselves were forced to stop production for a while, which was the most difficult period for us. We reacted quickly, took all necessary measures to protect the health of our employees and preserve the sustainability of business. We adjusted our plans very carefully and continued to operate in accordance with the needs of the market and the epidemiological situation. We have reduced investments only to those necessary for the conduction of business, while working on improving several business segments, including corporate governance, which will have a positive impact on our development in the long run.
    We have proven our quality, reliability and willingness to face the biggest challenges. At no time did we jeopardize deliveries to our customers, we ensured the company’s financial stability, preserved
    jobs and actively took care of the health and safety of our employees. Although the automotive industry has been severely affected by the crisis, the development of new vehicle models and plans for the future have not been stopped. This is supported by the figure of EUR 130.6 million of new deals that we sealed last year. Likewise, research and development activities within our company have not been stopped at any point, and changes in the automotive market have been further accelerated. Reducing emissions, developing new technologies, more environmentally friendly materials, greater user safety and environmental protection are even more in focus. Very high standards of sustainable development within the automotive industry have no alternative, so our focus on quality management of economic, but also social and environmental issues is
    growing stronger. Cooperation with all stakeholders of the company has always been extremely important to us, and precisely the past year has highlighted its importance in full. Through transparent and continuous communication, we have contributed to trust and the achievement of our goals. By continuing the quality management and development of our employees, we believe that we are developing a desirable business environment and high quality of our products and services even in extraordinary circumstances. We have proven our reliability also to our customers, while not forgetting to take care of the environment, the climate and the community in which we operate. In doing so, we continue to affirm that corporate social responsibility is part of our day-to-day operations and management. Although it will take some more time to fully stabilize the market and return to pre-crisis figures, a slight recovery is expected and we ended the year with mild but I believe realistic optimism. The challenges posed by the pandemic are still ongoing, so our plans for 2021 are more conservative than in previous years, but we believe in their realization. We have proven our quality, competencies and knowledge in the most difficult moments, and we want to continue in that direction in the future, I believe to the satisfaction of all our stakeholders.

  • Measurement of outcomes
  • Description of how the company monitors and evaluates performance.

  • In the reporting period, the company showed by its example that namely responsible behavior towards all stakeholders is one of the key priorities. It was a very intense year in which decisions were made without delay and it required absolute engagement and focus. The extraordinary situation also required extraordinary actions. Already at the first announcements of the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the development of the situation in all markets has been closely monitored and all necessary preventive actions to protect employee health and rationalize costs have been taken. Scenarios of potential risks have been developed, action and communication plans have been urgently prepared, and the Crisis Management Committee of the Group has been established. At the same time, at all production sites operational Crisis Management Committees were established which reported on a daily basis on the development of the situation and supervised the implementation and enforcement of protection measures. In order to protect the health and safety of its employees and ensure the sustainability of operations, the ADP COVID-19 Protocol was developed, containing all the necessary measures and guidelines for behavior and procedures in the new circumstances caused by the pandemic. In order to mitigate potential risks, additional measures and instructions have been prescribed and an effective system of two-way communication with all employees has been established. Internal campaigns were carried out continuously and actively, all necessary protective equipment for employees has been provided, travel and visits have been restricted, work in teams has been introduced and smooth running of production processes has been enabledin compliance with all prescribed measures. The development and condition of the supply chain at the Group level was monitored on a daily basis, and all necessary activities were taken in order to maintain production continuity. Despite the very demanding conditions, the production processes of the customers were not endangered at any time and all deliveries arrived on time. In the most difficult period during March and April, communication with key stakeholders took place almost on a daily basis. The primary goals of the company were to preserve the health and safety of employees and to preserve liquidity and financial stability, and it is the results for 2020 that confirm the success of their achievement.
    In the reporting period, communication within the Company took place through multiple channels at the individual, operational and corporate levels.

Environment
  • Assessment, policy and goals
  • Description of the relevance of environmental protection for the company (i.e. environmental risks and opportunities). Description of policies, public commitments and company goals on environmental protection.

  • Caring for the environment is an integral part of the mission and one of the core values, but also the responsibilities of the company. By constant monitoring the company’s impact on the environment, by improvements that are introduced into processes and by planning activities,potential risks and threats to the environment are avoided. In cooperation with its customers and suppliers, there has been continuous work on finding more environmentally friendly solutions, technologies and materials, all with the aim of reducing emissions from the vehicles themselves and preserving nature. Part of the company’s integrated strategy are greener production processes, rational consumption of natural resources and energy, and quality disposal of wastewater and waste. This is taken into account when making plans, strategies, purchasing new machines, materials and when conducting other activities of the company. The precautionary principle is applied at the Group level, according to which any possible risk of applying new technology is avoided until there is complete knowledge, ie understanding of its impact on the environment and human health. In the reporting period, continuous cooperation with customers on material research was continued, all with the aim of increasing the share of bioplastics primarily produced from renewable plant materials. Researches have also continued on the possibility of replacing existing paints, varnishes and solvents based on volatile organic compounds with those based on water, which have significantly less negative effects on the environment. Sustainable energy consumption, more precisely the use of a smaller amount of energy while maintaining the existing performance or increasing its performance, directly affects the improvement of the company’s energy efficiency, so analyses are constantly performed and opportunities for improvement are explored. Conscious and conscientious energy management is a permanent obligation and responsibility of AD Plastik Group.

  • Implementation
  • Description of concrete actions to implement environmental policies, address environmental risks and respond to environmental incidents.

  • AD Plastik Group meets very high standards of sustainability in economic, social and environmental topics that are woven into all elements and processes of business and management. With its responsible business operations, the company contributes to the fight against climate change and negative impacts on sustainability indicators. This is a fundamental principle of the company when making key decisions, which is preceded by an analysis of potential sustainability risksmand a plan of their prevention. In line with its strategy, company is working to increase energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase the share of renewable energy sources in total consumption. A long-term action plan has been developed that will contribute to the improvement of these indicators. Climate change and the negative impact on the environment are structural changes that are increasingly affecting also economic activities. Therefore, AD Plastik Group has accepted sustainability risk management as its mandatory task and risks are discussed at regular meetings of the Management Board and representatives of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility Committee. The management of individual parts of sustainable business is presented in the company’s regular annual integrated reports.
    Environmental protection is the responsibility and obligation of the company, but also of all its employees, and is woven into all activities and processes. Regulatory amendments and new regulations related to environmental protection are regularly monitored and their up-to-date implementation is taken care of. Also, assessments of compli¬ance with legal and other binding requirements are regularly conduct¬ed at all production sites, especially when introducing new processes, materials or technologies.
    The Management Board is regularly informed about the impact of business activities on the environment and special care is taken to protect it when making important decisions.
    In addition to external system audits as required by ISO 14001 standard, on-site inspections are carried out by inspection bodies. In 2020, no inspections were carried out at any production site.

    The automotive industry has been facing for some time with the great challenges of rapid changes, fast growth of new technologies, and the crisis caused by the pandemic has significantly accelerated transformations. Greater safety, environmentally more friendly, more technologically advanced and visually attractive vehicles are the undisputed future of the automotive industry, and thus the importance of research and development is growing. AD Plastik Group is aware of the need to change and upgrade key competencies within development, so we have been continuously working on improvements. In order to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions, and thus the weight of the vehicle, it is necessary to choose lighter materials. In cooperation with customers and suppliers, materials with specific characteristics are defined and selected in order for the final products to meet the strict criteria of sustainable development and environmental protection, as well as the desired quality. Polymeric materials are constantly being developed and new, better quality and more environmentally friendly solutions are being found, but they will certainly be the basis for the production of most interior and exterior components of the future due to their formability, mechanical and other characteristics and recyclability. The use of natural-based fillers in polypropylene injection moulded products reduces the mass and increases the proportion of recyclable components. Thus, for one of Reanult Group’s vehicles, whose serial production is in progress, hemp-based bio materials are used for the structure of the instrument panel, thus reducing the weight of the product by six percent. For application of PUR on speaker brackets and door covers for one of Peugeot’s vehicles, in the reporting period a one-component ecological material was selected that does not have a harmful impact on the environment and does not contain components that require special handling or storage. With the introduction of gas assisted injection moulding, significant weight economy is achieved, depending on the type of product, and in Kaluga currently two products are produced using namely this technology. By using it, the weight of the product is reduced by 15 percent. Thermoformed products are a potential replacement for certain injection-moulded interior and exterior components by lighter and more natural materials. Thus, for some Volkswagen vehicles in Russia, rear door trims are made with thermoforming technology, which directly affects the vehicle weight reduction and consequently the greenhouse gas emissions. A similar example is the production of floor carpet for Duster, which through recycled fibers and reducing the total weight of the product contributes to the same goal. In order to improve the products in the field of extrusion technology, a different design was approached, more precisely the redistribution of materials within the product enabled the product weight reduction and the application of environmentally friendly materials. With the development of technological equipment, its dimensions have been reduced, which in turn reduces the need for energy and space. By installing additional equipment on both painting lines in Zagreb, the efficiency of applying new paints and varnishes has been increased and the amount of paints that need to be disposed of has been reduced.

  • Measurement of outcomes
  • Description of how the company monitors and evaluates environmental performance.

  • Materials management is defined in all business processes of the Group and integrated with specific customer requirements, so that the finished products comply with technical specifications, using the best available technologies with the least possible impact on the environment.
    Thermoplastic organic polymers are the main raw materials of the company’s technological processes, which are shaped into the final product by various technologies. In addition to polymers, the most common materials are paints, varnishes and solvents based on volatile organic compounds used in the product painting technology.
    Waste solvents generated in the painting technology at the production site in Zagreb, in accordance with the Law on Sustainable Management, are disposed of by an authorized supplier who returns them purified and regenerated to the painting process. In 2020, 164 tons of regenerated solvent were used. The company continued to cooperate with the same supplier on the application of the chemical leasing model during 2020.
    The final products are packaged and transported to customers in returnable metal and plastic packaging, and part is packaged in cardboard packaging that is wrapped with foil before being placed on wooden pallets.
    The main objectives are to identify processes, consumers and ener¬gy sources, to determine the current energy performance of plants, equipment, systems and processes of significant energy use, to iden¬tify areas of significant energy use and opportunities to improve en¬ergy performance. This is the basis for the development of annual programs to reduce energy consumption, ie to use it more efficiently.
    Electric energy is the main energy source in the operation of produc¬tion plants and premises and is necessary for the operation of ma¬chines, heating and cooling devices and lighting.
    Electric energy consumption in 2020 was slightly reduced compared to the year before, and the purchased electric energy was not ob¬tained from renewable energy sources.
    During 2020, activities of replacing old lighting fixtures with new LED bulbs and installing high-speed roll up doors in storage areas in order to reduce energy loss were continued. More energy-efficient machines and equipment were purchased, equipment for automation of the system of monitoring electric energy consumption in various op¬erating modes was installed, and worn-out installations and skylights on the roofs of buildings were replaced.
    Energy intensity is measured by the ratio of total energy consumption within the organisation (kWh) and the total weight of delivered product (kg). The reason for the increase in energy intensity in 2020 compared to the previous period is the reduced production during March, April and May caused by the pandemic, while energy consumption did not decrease in the same proportion to ensure the smooth operation of the plant.
    All production sites of the Group are supplied with water through local connections of the public water supply system used for technological and sanitary purposes Water consumption is monitored daily by direct measurings by local water meters at production sites, and the efficiency and correctness of the water supply system is monitored daily. In terms of consumption, the company has no negative impact on the environment and does not jeopardize the capacities of local water wells.In accordance with the water permit, sampling and testing are regularly carried out in authorized laboratories, and the compliance of wastewater quality with the legally prescribed parameters is con¬firmed by regular analyses carried out at all production sites. This was also confirmed by the analyses conducted in 2020, and the quality reports were submitted to the competent state bodies for environ¬mental protection.
    The production sites of the AD Plastik Group do not have a negative impact on protected areas because they are not owned, leased or managed by protected areas or in their immediate vicinity, nor in are¬as of high value in terms of biodiversity.
    In 2020, there were no outpours of hazardous substances that could have negative impacts on the environment with potential adverse effects on the soil, water, air, biodiversity and human health.
    Emissions into the atmosphere from fixed sources are regularly monitored, on which reports are submitted in accordance with legal regulations in the field of air protection. The calculation of the emissions into the air is determined by direct measurements or indirectly by calculations based on the fuel consumption or the quantity of the substance emitted.
    During 2020, 33.48 percent of the total amount of waste was handed over to authorized disposal companies for recycling, of which 634.81 tons of non-hazardous and 234.65 tons of hazardous waste
    The monitoring is carried out at the Group level in accordance with the prescribed internal documents and ISO 14001 environmental
    management and ISO 50001 energy management standards. These standards were the backbone and basis for the development of an energy efficiency program
    that has clearly set goals by 2021.
