Good intentions alone are not enough when it comes to conserving resources and preserving nature. Responsible action is called for and that's why we actively took up this issue years ago. In fact, we were the first electroplating company in Europe to be validated in accordance with EMAS I standards back in 1996 (reg. no. DE-117-00001). Since then, we have successfully applied and continually developed our environmental management system. We constantly modernise our production facilities in line with the latest technological standards, making them among the most environmentally friendly in the industry.
We have also introduced the energy management system ISO 50001 across the entire Holzapfel Group and successfully passed the ISO 50001 audit in July 2015. The Group's companies use the energy management system to systematically and continuously improve energy efficiency standards. Transparent energy analysis enables us to permanently optimise energy consumption. Our efforts to reduce energy costs also mean greater resource efficiency, lower CO2 emissions and therefore a sustainable approach to the environment.
Sustainable manufacturing technologies such as the PIUS production-integrated environmental protection and sustainable energy management for the optimal use of all resources make a decisive contribution to our environmentally friendly coating methods.
