Product responsibility and environmental protection
We use environmentally friendly materials wherever possible for our products and factor in prolonged lifecycles and end-of-life recyclability at the start-of-life development stage. Our products are designed for durability and low maintenance – despite being typically deployed under harsh conditions. We also seek to maintain our high standards in the delivery of environmentally sound, safe products. We will therefore continue to focus our R&D efforts on complying with – or even exceeding – more stringent environmental regulations governing combustion engine emissions. In 2014, we made environmental criteria a fixed element of our requirement specifications for new products, ensuring that these demands are incorporated early on in the development process.
Statutory requirements The aim is not only to meet statutory requirements, such as international standards, European, national and municipal laws and regulations, but also to exceed them in order to better benefit our customers and the environment. We have already been living out this company policy for several years in many areas.
We want to become even better The protection of the environment and conserving natural resources are a top priority for us. The introduction of environmental management and energy management systems at our German and Austrian production and sales locations, as well as at our headquarters, will make our efforts measurable in the long term and help us to become even better.
