Our commitment to sustainability and environmental protection in Thuringia

Our company attaches great importance to sustainability and environmental protection. We are aware of our responsibility towards the environment and are actively committed to the careful use of resources. We have been successfully certified in the field of environmental and energy management (EMAS) since 2019 and are continuously working to make our processes even more sustainable.

As a company, we are proud to participate in the Thuringia Sustainability Agreement (NAThüringen). We are actively committed to sustainable development in Thuringia and help to protect the environment and conserve resources.

By participating in NAThüringen, we are committed to assuming ecological, social and economic responsibility. We focus on environmentally friendly production processes, resource-conserving materials and the reduction of emissions. We are also committed to fair working conditions and the promotion of the regional economy.

Our aim is to make a positive contribution to sustainable development in Thuringia and to work together with other companies and organisations to find solutions to current environmental and social problems. We are convinced that a future worth living for future generations can only be created through joint efforts.

In the coming years, we want to further expand the topic of sustainability and embed it in all areas of the company. This includes reducing emissions, optimising energy consumption and promoting environmentally friendly production and disposal processes. We are determined to do our part to protect the environment and strive to be a role model for sustainable business practices.

Our employees are an important part of our commitment to sustainability. Through training and awareness-raising measures, we want to sensitise them to the topic of environmental protection and encourage them to actively participate in our sustainability goals. Because only together can we bring about positive change and make a contribution to preserving our environment.
