Thinking and acting sustainably

Environmental awareness and sustainability are of particular importance in our industry – for the future and specifically for our day-to-day business. Since our foundation we have been working innovatively, sustainably and environmentally conscious. We use renewable energies in our production facilities which we generate via photovoltaic systems, combined heat and power units as well as wood chip heating.

In terms of transport services, we have a modern fleet of vehicles with state-of-the-art technologies. We consistently avoid empty runs through maximum load of our vehicles and pay close attention to compliance with ecological guidelines. This is how we save resources and protect the environment effectively. In addition, we engage in a variety of social activities.
