Environmental commitment

We are delighted that environmental groups are recognizing our sustainaibility initiatives. Both plants in Aachen have participated in the ECOPROFIT 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.
