Environmental Responsibility

Our Principles

  • The STIWA Group takes on respon­si­bil­i­ty for con­tin­u­ous improve­ment of ener­gy effi­cien­cy, the use of ener­gy and the ener­gy con­sump­tion, the envi­ron­men­tal com­pat­i­bil­i­ty of our prod­ucts and process­es as well as for the reduc­tion of nat­ur­al resources. At the same time we focus on a secure pow­er sup­ply accord­ing to prize and need.
  • There­fore we use ener­gy- and eco-effi­cient tech­nolo­gies and we are at all sites part­ner to the soci­ety and to pol­i­tics in shap­ing a social­ly and eco­log­i­cal­ly sus­tain­able devel­op­ment.
  • Ener­gy and envi­ron­men­tal man­age­ment is a man­age­ment task which is con­stant­ly being devel­oped and improved. We pro­vide infor­ma­tion and resources in order to achieve all cor­re­spond­ing strate­gic and oper­a­tional objec­tives.
  • High­est premise is com­pli­ance with all rel­e­vant laws and reg­u­la­tions.
  • The eco­nom­i­cal use of raw mate­ri­als and resources as well as the pre­ven­tion of any kind of waste are self-evi­dent. Where avoid­ance is not pos­si­ble an envi­ron­men­tal­ly com­pat­i­ble return to the cycle of mate­ri­als is ensured. Where pos­si­ble, ener­gy is recov­ered.
  • Ener­gy effi­cien­cy and envi­ron­men­tal com­pat­i­bil­i­ty starts in the R&D process. Among oth­ers by a resource-effi­cient prod­uct, pro­duc­tion process and pack­age design as well as by the selec­tion of suit­able sup­pli­ers.
  • The STIWA Group designs its prod­ucts for max­i­mum dura­bil­i­ty and strict­ly rejects a short­en­ing of the ser­vice life by design (planned obso­les­cence).
  • We pur­chase ener­gy-effi­cient prod­ucts and ser­vices.
  • Every employ­ee con­tributes to ener­gy effi­cien­cy and envi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion. Our envi­ron­men­tal man­age­ment rep­re­sen­ta­tive coor­di­nates the appro­pri­ate infor­ma­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion.
  • An open dia­log with our part­ners and the soci­ety as well as clear infor­ma­tion is impor­tant to us.
  • We pay atten­tion to an ener­gy-effi­cient and envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly trans­porta­tion.
  • The per­for­mance and tar­get achieve­ment of the envi­ron­men­tal man­age­ment sys­tem is con­tin­u­ous­ly mon­i­tored and report­ed to the senior man­age­ment.
  • The ISO 14001 cer­ti­fi­ca­tion empha­sizes the com­pli­ance with inter­na­tion­al stan­dards.
