Environmental management

Awareness of the environment and resourceful conduct not only significantly shape our social, but also our entrepreneurial activities. For us, it is not about implementing existing environmental law regulations in an adequate way, but it is also about advancing environmental protection within the company in our role as a responsible company. Our motto is sustainable economic and resource-saving activity.

This is our reason for deciding to transfer professional environmental management, based on the DIN EN ISO 14001 norm, into our company structure and applying it. And we have been successful. We have had TÜV certification of our environmental management system since 2008 and have also been certified by TÜV for our energy management system in accordance with DIN EN ISO 50001 since 2015.

Guiding principles of our environmental policy

  • Environmentally-orientated company management is innovative, thinks about the future and questions old solutions.
  • We set ourselves environment targets to continually improve our operational environmental protection.
  • We ensure that energy and resources are handled sparingly in our production processes.
  • Our activities are evaluated and monitored in relation to their impacts on the environment. Data relevant to the environment is collected and analysed to see how damaging environmental impacts can be reduced.
  • We also want to avoid as much waste as possible. If this is not possible, but economically justifiable, we take measures to recycle or take care of waste in an environmentally compatible manner. We try to reduce non-recyclable residual waste as much as possible.
  • We make our employees aware of environmental protection by providing training, information and internal education. Responsible persons also have the opportunity to gain further external training.
  • Compliance with legal specifications is not only an obligation for us, but is also an important tool in implementing our operational environmental protection technically and professionally.
  • When required, we advise the customer if we identify more environmentally-friendly alternatives in relation to the product, the production process and logistics.
  • Forward-thinking environmental protection safeguards our company in the long-term. And this does not have a negative impact on our competitiveness.
  • The use of the best possible technology within the scope of economic opportunities should minimise environmental impacts, prevent accident-related environmental problems and keep the consequences of accidents to a minimum.
