Schiedel going green.

We care about our planet and we believe that we can help the environment by being responsible for the way we produce our products, the waste created and through the way we consume energy.

We have some challenging targets we would like to achieve within the next ten years and we are doing this in partnership with our people, our customers and suppliers. Already we have changed the way we think and operate so that we are less wasteful in the things we do. To help us achieve these targets we have asked for proposals and suggestions on ways we can reduce our waste and become a greener business, throughout the full chain.

REDUCE: We use fewer resources and reduce the amount of waste we reduce.

REUSE: Before we recycle or dispose of anything, we find ways to use materials again.

RECYCLE: To prevent wasting potentially useful materials we always try to process the transforming of waste materials into new products.

REFUSE: We do not accept to use harmful materials.

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:
