Environmental and energy management - “Natural ecological awareness”
Global warming, rising energy costs and scarce resources show that we are responsible for the environment. As a medium-sized company we consider environmental and energy management systems suitable instruments for integrating environmental protection into business operations and opening up new possibilities for energy saving. The manufacture of Technical Ceramics is a process requiring extensive energy consumption and offers many opportunities for economic measures to ensure a healthy environment.
Visit our media center where you can download guidelines for our energy and environmental policy that give details of our engagement to environmentally friendly handling of energy and resources as well as the guiding principles to which we are committed.
We have been successfully implementing our environmental policy with the following measures:
- The kilns we use in our manufacturing process are suitable for heating of other manufacturing sections. This saves heating energy and allows an overall reduction of CO2 emissions.
- We are committed to ethical and ecological guidelines for procurement and cooperate with our suppliers to ensure eco-friendly behavior.
- Our Ideas Management documents, checks and implements proposals from our employees for environmentally friendly behavior.
- A clever system of air pressure management allows the optimum control of different compressors.
