The environmental challenges in our world are many and interlinked.
Air pollution caused into deaths, and millions people still do not have access to safe drinking water and adequate sanitation.
Added to these, releases of hazardous chemicals, climate change, effective engagement of the public in decision-making and access to environmental information and justice are among major concerns we need to address urgently.
To meet these challenges we work to improve the environmental situation with our projects and to reduce pollution and the damage it causes.
We believe that dealing with people, nature, and energy in a way that preserves resources will pay off in the long run.
Therefore, we make no short term decisions, but always consider the consequences of our actions.
We exclusively offer products with the aim of minimizing pollutants and saving energy.
We use energy-saving and environmentally friendly production processes and facilities.
We use natural resources as sparingly as possible.
Energy and water, raw and auxiliary materials may only be planned and used effectively and efficiently.
The aim is to continuously review and improve the existing environmental and energy management system, as well as all processes and energy-related performance.
Environmentally conscious planning, specification and project implementation means permanent monitoring and compliance with all laws, official requirements, regulations and ordinances.
The consideration of environmental protection, the optimization of energy efficiency, which also includes the reduction of energy consumption, must be achievable in all operational concerns.
For this purpose, it is necessary to constantly adapt the strategic and operational goals and to demand corresponding rules of conduct.
Gases are purified and filtered to the maximum, liquid and solid residues are recycled or disposed of thermally, for example, without endangering people or the environment.
This also includes preventive handling of the environment and energy through comprehensive information.
When new products and processes are introduced, their environmental impact and energy efficiency are assessed in order to avoid environmental, energy and safety risks.
To this end, we consider the entire service life of our products, including their disposal.
In order to avoid environmental pollution and energy waste, we try to promote environmental and energy awareness through our information to customers, suppliers and other interest groups.
Our products and services demonstrate this philosophy.
The Statement of Environmental Policy will be communicate to all sites and workplaces.
The organisation and arrangements for implementing the Policy will also be available at each site and workplace for reference by any employee as required.
