An environmentally-friendly ethos and conduct are a key part of our corporate culture. This is why we have already implemented measures in the past and will not hesitate to do so in future to ensure that our ecological footprint is as low as possible.
This approach is not only incorporated in the various processes within the company but is also implemented on a continuous basis throughout our daily routine – from transportation planning right through to the individual work stations.
As part of the renovation and construction of the building complex, some measures to reduce air pollution, energy consumption and CO² emissions have been implemented. Firstly, comprehensive building insulation has been installed to ensure that energy can be saved. As part of the energy saving measures, all of the lights have been changed to LED energy saving lamps.
Additionally, the plant technology has been completely modernised. The use of several air heat pumps has considerably reduced the level of CO² emissions. Photovoltaics systems have also been installed on the roofs of the building complexes. Annually, approx. 250 MWh/year of electricity are generated equating to the average annual consumption of approx. 50 family homes. The electricity required for our office buildings and the workshop is thus generated in a sustainable way.
The environmental management system has been certified to DIN EN ISO 14001:2015 for the first time since February 2017. This helps us to implement and meet the defined environmental issues and objectives. All of our processes and services thus adhere to internally recognised standards ensuring we make an important contribution to the environment.
