Our responsibility to protect the environment is derived from our values and our corporate strategy. We have instituted Group-wide principles, strategies and organizational structures for corporate environmental protection and have also implemented a certified environmental management system for our Group-wide activities. In this way, we aim to reduce our emissions and waste while also ensuring that resources such as energy, water and raw materials are utilized as efficiently as possible. Process safety is a key prerequisite here.
Through the EDISON program, we implement Group-wide measures to achieve our climate protection goals.
We strive for operational efficiency and therefore use raw materials, energy and water economically.
Water is used in production primarily for cooling, for process water, or for exhaust air purification.
The prevention and proper disposal of waste is an important task.
We have defined high standards for plant and process safety worldwide.
Ecosystem services are indispensable to our operations.
