Environment & sustainability

Committed to the environment

Our environmental policy sets out the principles of action for environmental protection which we apply to our activities. The overall responsibility for environmental protection lies directly with senior management and is generally binding for our operations and all our activities at our company headquarters in Erkenbrechtsweiler.

Our unique geographical location in the Swabian Alps biosphere reserve is both an incentive and a responsibility in terms of environmental protection.

We regard nature, society, the economy and each individual company as part of a global ecological system, the balance and diversity of which is critical for the continuation of all life on Earth. As a commercial enterprise, we acknowledge our particular responsibility for the preservation of our natural environment.

We firmly believe that the sustainable use of natural resources such as water, air and earth as well as flora and fauna must be ensured by means of economic instruments and that we must work together to make continuous improvement in this regard.

Sustainability with self-generated electricity

We use our own solar power

We use self-generated electricity produced by our own photovoltaic systems.

Yield analysis system 1 – 121 kWp – CO2 saving 776.06 tonnes
Yield analysis system 2 – 40 kWp – CO2 saving 321.06 tonnes
Total savings through on-site consumption approx. 1097.07 tonnes

Measured over a whole year, approx. 60 – 70 % of our electricity consumption is covered by self-generated power.
