Sustainability Protecting the environment, working and living sustainably
Based on our understanding of values, organisations that participate in global industrial growth must take on the challenges being faced by our society and must actively pursue sustainable solutions for a worthwhile future. Global challenges include climate change, the increasing demand for raw materials and the global requirement for functioning infrastructure. We want to play our part in increasing awareness within society of sustainability and environmentally responsible action. After all, we have understood that a harmonious relationship between sustainability and economic success also opens up new opportunities.
At our new NEUEHEIMAT company site, we have opted for state-of-the-art infrastructure for resource-friendly heating and energy usage, and have installed charging stations for our employees to allow for e-mobility. And with a catering concept for healthy eating directly on site, we are reducing unnecessary journeys and CO2 pollution at the site.
As part of our ongoing efforts towards more sustainability, we have defined three different levels:
This is why we try to use environmentally friendly materials that often go beyond the legal specifications right from the product development stage. This includes foregoing phthalates, lead and hexavalent chromium in all new products as well as using recyclable materials.
We talk more and more to our suppliers about efficient, energy-saving production processes, and we make sure that our procurement strategy is designed with these in mind. Above all, our Engineering Solutions department is aimed at increasing quality and service life by means of customer-specific solutions, thereby ensuring an above-average life cycle.
