As part of our corporate duty of care with regard to an environmental management system (EMS), we define our corporate principles as follows:
The application of the EMS ensures that all organizational, commercial and technical activities that have an impact on the environment are recorded, planned, controlled and monitored. In addition, contractually agreed requirements are met.
The EMS we practice implements the DIN EN ISO 14001 standard. The structure corresponds to this standard, the content requirements of which are also to be applied in contractual agreements with our customers.
The definition of the environmental policy and the environmental goals derived from it as well as the internal and external communication are the responsibility of the management, which is supported by the environmental management representative. Finally, the determination of all data relevant to the environment is the responsibility of the Environmental Protection Officer of the department.
We bear responsibility, also and in particular for the effects of our environment and thus our future.
By consciously handling this responsibility, we make an important contribution to avoiding environmental pollution. We regularly measure and evaluate our environmental performance and are constantly looking for potential for improvement. Our environmental management is based on legal requirements and the results of our environmental audits.
In our environmental commitment, we take into account economic aspects as well as the expectations of our customers, employees and other stakeholders.
Our environmental program defines objectives and planned measures to ensure continuous ecological development in the business sector and beyond. The following aspects are taken into account:
- the objectives and measures are in line with the environmental policy
- the achievability and verifiability of the objectives and measures is ensured
- the objectives and measures should be quantifiable as far as possible
- responsibilities for implementation are defined
- the necessary resources and time frame are determined
Environmental management requires responsible employees at all levels who actively cooperate and think along with the implementation. The company management and the employees commit themselves to the implementation of the described environmental policy principles.
We are certified according to DIN EN ISO 14001:2015
