As a company, we are committed to securing a sustainable future. We want to help preserve the basis of life for people, animals and plants for the present and future generations.

Environmental impact

We want to continuously reduce the environmental impact caused or influenced by our company (employees as well as partners and suppliers) and conserve resources by using them sparingly.

Raising awareness

We promote environmental awareness among our employees and oblige them to behave in an environmentally friendly manner in the workplace. We communicate regularly about our environmental performance.


We achieve the principles of our environmental policy by,

  • implementing an environmental management system in accordance with the requirements of ISO standard 14001
  • regularly reviewing direct and indirect environmental impacts, evaluating them, implementing measures for improvement and adapting them to changing conditions.
  • involve all areas and stakeholders in environmental management.
  • take the necessary measures in the areas we consider essential in order to reduce our environmental impact. In doing so, we implement an economically justifiable solution in each case, taking into account the available technology and possibilities.
  • commit ourselves to compliance with the environmental laws and regulations relevant to us.
  • Integrate environmental considerations into the renewal, acquisition, procurement and development of products and services.
  • commit ourselves to informing all employees about operational environmental protection and to promote environmental awareness through ongoing sensitization.
  • act as a role model as managers
  • involve external partners in a targeted manner for development and optimization.
    This includes, in particular, suppliers as well as cooperation partners and technical specialists.
  • inform interested parties (guests, customers, population, partners, suppliers) about the environmental results of our company
We review our environmental policy annually to ensure that it is up to date.
Our environmental officer is responsible for the maintenance of the environmental management system according to ISO 14001. He is supported by the environmental team as well as the management.
