We are taking clear action for environmental protection: protecting people and nature is our highest priority as a company. Since 2002, over 80 million Euros have been invested in environmental protection initiatives.

An integrated management system has made it possible to implement quality, environmental and safety standards, which greatly exceed legal requirements in a number of fields. We are also participating in the EU's EMAS and we recognise the stipulations of the "Responsible Care" initiative.

Furthermore, we have implemented the EU's regulation on the production and use of chemical substances REACH .
