Ecology

KRALL+ROTH’S SUSTAINABILITY CONCEPT IS BASED ON RESPONSIBILITY FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS: IT PURSUES GOALS AND TAKES STEPS AS FOLLOWS:

  • ISO 14001 environmental management system certification since 2000
  • Resource-friendly handling of materials by carrying out monofraction sorting and ensuring recycling capabilities
  • Using and manufacturing products that are biodegradable or can be recycled
  • Successively using recycled raw materials (work in progress)
  • Carefully selecting controlled and certified materials, dyes and ancillary materials and carry out production in compliance with REACH and ecological regulations like the Oeko-Tex standard or the cradle-to-cradle principle
  • Optimising energy efficiency and climate neutrality by fitting a cogeneration unit with 30 kW thermal and 15 kW electrical output in 2011 and planning a wind turbine with approx. 250 kw output
  • Using electricity, gas and water from primarily renewable sources
  • Eco-friendly transport, warehousing and packaging due to reusable pallets and warehousing systems and minimising waste by not using foil packaging in some cases
  • Using waste by specifically recycling it or returning it to the Dual System as practised in Germany
  • Training and encouraging staff to adopt a sustainability mindset
