The ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management Certification
After months of intensive preparation with the following plants and sites, we are proud to announce that the TÜV (the German technical inspection authority) external environmental audits are now complete.
Schiedel UK’s Washington branch and other Schiedel locations have successfully passed the ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management Certification!
The following sites are integrated in the ISO 14001 certification process:
– Munich (Head Office)
– Nußbach (Administration)
Schiedel had focused on this certification since before 2019 and, unfortunately, the process was delayed due to Covid 19.
Back on track, we are delighted to have taken another positive step towards environmental management and sustainability with this certification as part of our Going Green Programme.
Of course, we would like to thank all the colleagues at every site for their high commitment, dedication and collaboration.
Congratulations to everyone on this accomplishment!

Schiedel has always tried very hard to improve its ecological footprint with various activities. Since 2019 we have now set a new, consolidated standard with our company-wide “Going Green” initiative, which is unique in the industry.
But even before 2019, we undertook various activities in all areas that should protect and protect our environment. In the “Industry” area, for example, we have drastically reduced the proportion of cement with a new material solution and optimized it in such a way that we were able to save 3600 tons of cement and also reduce our CO2 emissions. In our factories, we have been able to drastically save the energy required by switching to LED lighting. There are further examples in the area of “purchasing and logistics” where we have invested heavily in building insulation and new, energy-efficient machines.
Our new, strategic goals are a lot more ambitious:
