NETZSCH Campus: Pioneering environmental protection measures

NETZSCH has been actively involved in environmental protection and sustainability for many decades. The subject of social responsibility goes far beyond the compliance with regulations. Most recently, more pioneering ecological protection measures were established at the NETZSCH Campus in Waldkraiburg to minimise resource consumption. These include a biomass heating module, efficient groundwater heat pumps and the installation of photovoltaic systems. “Our goal is to be completely independent of fossil fuels by 2025”, says Johann Vetter, director of integrated quality management system. According to Vetter, the consolidation of the plant and the associated conversion of the heating system meant that around 85 percent less fossil fuels were consumed in 2023 than in the same period of the previous year. A district heating connection at the campus in Geretsrieder Straße is also being planned.

After the certificate was handed over, Robert Pötzsch, mayor of Waldkraiburg, and Max Heimerl, district administrator of the district of Mühldorf am Inn, were given a tour of the company.

Heimerl: “Best practice showcase in environmental management”

Heimerl was also impressed by the environmental protection measures when presenting the certificate: “NETZSCH is a best practice showcase in environmental and energy management. With its active environmental management, environmental protection and energy report, NETZSCH does not limit itself to creating a healthy working environment for all employees but is also aware that the consumption of resources and energy must not be at the expense of future generations. The certificate honours qualified voluntary environmental achievements within the company, which are implemented at NETZSCH in an exemplary manner and on a large scale.” The environmental management system by DIN EN ISO 14001, which was introduced in 2015, and the company's membership of ÖKOPROFIT and the ÖKOPROFIT Club since 2006 were among the decisive factors in the award of the Bavarian Environmental and Climate Pact certificate.
