Environmental management

Continual improvement of environmental management

 

Since 2010:


  • we have operated an environmental management system in accordance with DIN ISO 14001
  • we have created an annual greenhouse gas report, which is currently being revised in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol before publication


Our new construction projects – Factory 2, the logistics centre in Leutkirch and the planned Factory 3 in Probstzella – are EnergyPlus buildings. For all three sites we will only use green electricity. Fossil fuels have been largely phased out. Only our tool shop in Thuringia, which employs 15 people, is still being heated with oil until the new building is completed.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Any greenhouse gas emissions that cannot be avoided to date are compensated with Gold Standard Verified Emission Reduction (VER) certificates.


We began enhancing our mobility concept in 2014

 

  • Business trips: the car fleet will have been switched to energy efficiency class A vehicles by 2017 with a ban on SUVs, supported by systematic use of the green power offer from Deutsche Bahn
  • Commuting: a cycling initiative (‘On your bike’) for all employees – a subsidised bike lease that includes private use
  • Incentive programmes such as a Nissan LEAF offer in which the car can be charged at the company’s expense
