We think ahead…
As an environmental technology company and employer in the Rhine Neckar metropolitan region we are also aware of our social responsibility. We focus on the topic of environmental protection and sustainability from several perspectives:
On the one hand, our products make an effective contribution to emission reduction. On the other hand, we have the ambition and the motivation to stengthen the topic seriously in the organization and the stakeholders.
We are on the way to a CO₂-free factory. For this purpose, we have implemented the operation in Sinsheim in an intelligent energy network. This includes a geothermal system with heat recovery for heating in winter and cooling in summer as well as a photovoltaic system and various measures for thermal insulation. The company is thus energy self-sufficient without energy sources such as coal or gas. This intelligent system received the Energy Masters Award in 2011.
In addition, production was switched to intelligent LED lighting in 2018:
In addition, there are a number of other projects in the field of sustainability:
- the topic of CO₂ footprint is firmly integrated in our material master data
- deposit cycles are used instead of disposable packaging
- Transport routes have been standardized
