Environmental Protection and Sustainability at NETZSCH Pumps & Systems
We take responsibility in the company, in the production and for our products
Green beyond the corporate colours: Active environmental protection is one of the priority tasks in every successful modern company today. At NETZSCH Pumps & Systems, environmental protection and sustainability have always played a central role.
We are aware of our social and ecological responsibility. Sustainable business can only take place in an intact environment. Based on this conviction, the global specialist for complex fluid management introduced an environmental management system by DIN EN ISO 14001 in 2015.
Social responsibility of NETZSCH Pumps & Systems
The issue of social responsibility is much more than compliance. It deals with how companies manage their economic and social impacts on the environment and how they relate to their stakeholders, such as employees, trading partners and government.
„We produce durable capital goods and support a sustainable approach with our spare parts supply and service.“
"We are aware of our social and ecological responsibility. For many years, environmental protection and sustainability have been the focus of our on-site actions and concerning our products' use by our customers. We produce durable capital goods and support a sustainable approach with our spare parts supply and service", says Hans Vetter, head of integrated quality management.
Our environmental management is not limited to creating a healthy working environment for our employees. Instead, we are aware that our consumption of resources and energy must not be at the expense of future generations. This is one of the reasons why the plants in Waldkraiburg were consolidated into the NETZSCH Campus. In addition, all buildings are being upgraded to the latest energy standards. This will save around 40 percent of fossil fuels. A complete phase-out of fossil fuels is planned by 2025.
NETZSCH initiatives for environmental protection and sustainability
As part of introducing the environmental management system, an energy audit was completed in 2016 by the Energy Services Act (EDL-G). The aim was to analyse energy consumption better and derive appropriate measures to reduce consumption. These have already been actively addressed in recent years and will continue to shape NETZSCH in the future. As a partner of the VDMA's Blue Competence sustainability initiative, we take responsibility. In addition, we have been an ÖKOPROFIT company since 2006 and a member of the ÖKOPROFIT Club and the Environmental Pact of Bavaria. With our partnership with Blue Competence, we are committed to complying with the twelve sustainability principles of the mechanical and plant engineering industry. Since 2018, we have also been evaluated and awarded annually by EcoVadis for social responsibility.
