The BAUER sustainability offensive - Our contribution to climate and environmental protection
The protection of the climate and natural resources is an integral part of our corporate vision and the basis of our business activities. As a central component, we have established an efficient environmental management system and had this successfully certified by the environmental management standard 14001. All steps and measures taken in this context extend across the entire company and are implemented with commitment by each individual employee. Examples include improving the energy efficiency of buildings and production equipment and reducing CO2 output by consistently converting the vehicle fleet to climate-neutral mobility. In the production area, the measures are primarily aimed at avoiding environmentally harmful substances in production and product packaging, as well as the use of recycled materials where possible. Across the company, the existing waste separation systems are being further refined. Last but not least, the establishment of a flowering meadow and deadwood piles for insects in the neighbouring company-owned forest and the settlement of bee colonies ensure more biodiversity. Beyond what has already been achieved, the focus is on establishing a continuous improvement process.
