Acting in an environmentally conscious manner
In addition to quality assurance, we are also conscious of our responsibility for the environment and society. This can be seen not only in our production procedures through the observance of the valid environmental regulations and a careful handling of raw materials and energy. We also observe this responsibility by developing products that lead to continuous savings in use. Our efforts have been certified according to the ISO 14001 environmental standard since 2008 and according to the ISO 50001 energy standard since 2013.
Our 1-gigawatt photovoltaic plant, which covers the majority of our electrical current requirement, makes a considerable contribution to the sustainability of the energy supply. In addition, all our machines, like compressors, are equipped according to the latest standard for heat recovery. Additionally required heating energy is taken from the exhaust heat of a local biomass power plant. Our heating oil consumption for the generation of heat could thus be reduced by approx. 95 percent.
