Following our principle „We build our own future – acting responsibly towards society and the environment" we attach great importance to sustainability in our development and production processes.
Our environmental strategy "packaging and the environment" is based on the following principles:
1. Product Development
- development of aluminium-free packagings
- downgauging of raw materials in order to reduce packaging weight
- raw materials from renewable resources
- development of compostable packaging
- offset of unavoidable CO2-emissions
2. Production Processes
- energy recovery from the incineration plant
- closed circuit heating-cooling-system
- CO2 voluntary climate protection agreement
- photovoltaic equipment
- use of renewable energy - eco-label "naturemade star"

Unavoidable CO2-emissions are offset within climate protection projects
Solvent Incineration with Energy Recovery (heat exchangers)
The incinerator has a capatity of 25'000 m³ and complements the existing biofilter plant. Our printing machines are set to ensure that solvent incineration has precedence over the biofilter. Heat from the solvent incineration is recirculated via heat-exchangers to the dryers on the printing and laminating equipment.
Use of advanced biological technology to dispose of solvent emissions. A filter made from natural materials e.g. bark and wood chippings "digests" solvents.
Closed Circuit Heating-Cooling-System
Water consumption is minimised thanks to closed circuit heating-cooling-system; energy consumption is reduced by heat exchangers.
CO2- voluntary Agreement
Climate protection is our credo
