Ecology - Environment and Climate
We actively pursue climate protection
Active climate and environmental protection has been the focus of our corporate philosophy for almost 25 years!
Already in 1997, the first certification according to the EC Eco-Audit Regulation was achieved. Since 2004, the environmental certification according to ISO14001 in the respective form (currently: DIN EN ISO 14001:2015) has been consistently continued.
In addition, the RATHGEBER Group has been completely climate-neutral since 2010.
✓ Reduce and eliminate CO₂e wherever possible
We attach great importance to sustainability. In our production, we have switched to CO₂e-saving processes and keep our own CO₂e emissions as low as possible within the company. In addition to heat recovery in machine processes and water circuits, we also use the latest refrigerant technology in production wherever possible.
To name a few more measures: Our locations are equipped with photovoltaics, battery storage, green electricity, district heating and/or green gas. In addition, our vehicle fleet is gradually being converted to e-mobility.
We are, of course, continuously working to further reduce our footprint!
✓ Offset unavoidable emissions
✓ Added value for our customers at no extra charge
It is particularly important to us that our customers benefit directly from our environmental commitment. That is why we have decided to make all our products climate-neutral without any ifs and buts. This means that our customers do not have to pay a surcharge, which is common in our industry, when they want to purchase a climate-friendly product. In addition, each of our customers receives an individual CO₂e certificate for the products purchased from the RATHGEBER group upon request, thus verifiably reducing their own CO₂e footprint as well.
