We are delighted that environmental groups are recognizing our sustainaibility initiatives. Both plants in Aachen have participated in the /us/layout/set/print/Media/Images/Industriegeschaeft-10/Award-Ecoprofit-2014-2015ECOPROFIT project since 2003 and earned many project awards.
ECOPROFIT stands for Ecological Project For Integrated Environmental Technology and is a business initiative dedicated to sustainable economic development. This program encourages businesses to be more environmentally friendly while they reduce costs. If a company can reduce its resource use – or avoid creating waste – it also will (as a rule) reduce costs.
Companies participating in the ECOPROFIT project have individual environmental programs. Although each company establishes its own timetable, an independent commission assesses program results. ECOPROFIT is a collaborative effort between local authorities, local businesses and other regional and national partners. It already is in place in 70 local German authorities.
