Environmental policy

Environmental protection is a natural part of our company policy. Our awareness of that affects our daily actions in all areas of the company. The care and the continuous improvement of environmental protection have to guarantee the safety of humans and the environment and ensure the long-term existence of our enterprise.

Effective environment protection means to us:

Optimal use
of energy, water and raw materials.

Avoidance
of environment pollution caused by emissions, sewage, soil pollution and waste.

Technical and organizational measures
for labor and environment protection and plant safety.

Training of staff
to improve the sense of responsibility for the environment.

Improvement of good public relation
by exchange of information.

For implementation of these objectives we go beyond the framework of legal provisions to a more proactive environmental management and strive for holistic thinking and action.
