We strive to be environmentally conscious by preserving resources: this philosophy is an integral part of our corporate identity. In order to reduce energy consumption in the production of our strapping machines and material, our energy management system has been successfully certified according to DIN EN ISO 50001 in 2015.
Our Energy Policy
Sustainable behaviour is the common thread that runs through all departments and business areas of our company. Responsibility for the careful use of finite resources, compliance with statutory and customer requirements and increasing energy prices have led us to define procedural and organisational arrangements with a lasting effect. These rules are anchored in our energy management system which meets the requirements of DIN EN ISO 50001. With the introduction of an environmentally conscious energy policy at the German Head Office sites, we live by our commitment to act in a sustainable and considerate way. Our energy policy is a guideline to our company and employees for the use of energy in everyday life.
Active environmental protection and efficient and sustainable use of energy are important management tasks for us for which we provide all necessary information and guidelines. Employee training encourages our people to pursue activities with consideration of our energy objectives. Compliance with legal and regulatory obligations is a matter of course. To check our predetermined strategic and operational ideas, we use an energy management system, in which both our employees and our suppliers are integrated. The review of our targets by the company management is an important component of this system.
Strive for improvements
We are committed to achieve continuous development by regularly reviewing our energy management system. Prior to the introduction of new production methods, when planning further investments as well as during manufacture of our products, we determine the associated environmental impacts and energy requirements. Wherever possible and technically feasible, we aim to reduce them to a minimum with the purchase of energy efficient equipment and services. Through the use of the most up-to-date technology, we increase the energy efficiency of our machines and systems and thereby reduce the production of greenhouse gases. At the annual management audit we consider our energy goals, whether they are still effective and in line with our energy policy.
We are committed to a lasting reduction in energy consumption and a sustainable increase in energy-related performance. We use energy efficiently and manage it responsibly. Through continuous analysis of the energy consumed, we assess demand and look for potential savings. This means in practice, that energy-efficient products and services are taken into account in the purchase decision. Our staff participate in continuous improvement processes and are encouraged to make smart suggestions about energy preservation.
We inform all employees about environmental protection and energy issues and encourage them to take individual responsibility in their workplace and promote environmental and energy awareness. Through open, objective and comprehensive dialogue with the public, with business and contractual partners as well as relevant authorities, we exchange information in an appropriate manner about environmental or energy-related events, all in line with our energy policy.
