Throughout the value-added and supply chain, we insist that our products are manufactured with a desire to preserve resources, and are environmen-tally friendly and save energy during their subsequent use.
We therefore evaluate and select the processes throughout our value-added and supply chain with a view to the preservation of resources, protection of the environment and sustainability, and we then continually reassess, question and improve these processes.
We define our production methods and the factory infrastructure while taking the best technology available to us and the economic efficiency criteria into account.
We make every effort to continually optimise our primary energy requirements and the use of resources and provide for energy efficiency and environmental compatibility when operating the production systems and factory infrastructure. We undertake to continually improve our management system and environmental performance. The resources required for this are made available.
As part of our procurement policy we support the purchase of energy-efficient and resource-friendly products, substances and services. In-house we communicate our claim by providing all necessary information for improving our environmental performance and our energy efficiency.
We always act in compliance with the general legal conditions and consider these to be the minimum standard. In addition, we also commit ourselves to fulfil all other binding obligations.
