Making continuous improvement measurable
An environmentally friendly production process with a high level of safety and environmental protection is the basis for our economic success. We continuously invest in the modernization of our production plants, in emerging and in traditional markets.
Our environmental program aims to keep the effects of our business activities on the environment as low as possible. We have set concrete targets for reducing waste and lowering energy consumption. One important tool for this purpose is the certification of production sites under the international environmental management standard ISO 14001. Of our production sites, we have 23 certified under the specifications of this standard. At selected locations, Siegwerk employs specially trained Environmental Protection Officers. All the other not yet certified locations will also use this standard for orientation in future.
Our target is to improve the quality of our products, reduce environmental pollution, and increase resource efficiency. This also allows us to reduce the ongoing costs of production. In this way, we are able to reconcile our targets of economic and ecological sustainability. Investments in up-to-date production plants simultaneously offer the opportunity to improve occupational safety.
