Environmental Policy

Sustainability is not an empty phrase for us, but a matter of course that we live by every day. In order to protect our environment in the best possible way and to leave an intact ecosystem for future generations, the responsible use of our natural resources is particularly important to us. Therefore, we design our production and assembly processes to be as sustainable as possible and rely on efficient energy use. This responsible approach is firmly anchored in our corporate philosophy as well as in the form of our environmental management system according to ISO 14001:2015 and is underpinned by various certifications.

Environmental Policy

In concrete terms, this means:

  1. We communicate our standards and goals to all employees.

  2. We continuously optimise the environmental management system.

  3. We are committed to fulfilling and monitoring all legal requirements.

  4. We continuously improve the use of energy in production.

Through constant process optimisation and the production of sustainable, certified products, we live an environmental policy that reduces CO₂ pollution in the long term and reduces our ecological footprint as much as possible.

We act for the generations of the future

From CO₂ reduction to water and waste management to the reduction of greenhouse gases – we have regulated which tasks, goals and values we associate with our environmental policy in topic-specific guidelines. You can find them in our download section.
