Key figures on environmental protection

We are working continuously on gradually reducing the environmental impact of our production sites. 

Our goals are ambitious: In manufacturing, we are aiming for a 20% reduction in relation to the adjusted sales volume of energy and water consumption, CO2 emissions and waste generation by 2020 (base year: 2013). At the same time we are doing our best to increase the recycling rate of industrial waste by 2% each year.

We will reduce our consumption of raw materials by using more recycled materials. In this way, we indirectly contribute to reducing energy consumption in raw material extraction and production.
