At one with nature and the environment

Environmental protection is more than just a catchphrase. 

For us, environmental protection is a matter of course, an obligation and a challenge. It is central to our corporate philosophy; it is an important part of our corporate responsibility; and it has been a top priority throughout all business processes since our company was founded in 1972.

Committed to the location: our company’s special location on the edge of the Naturpark Nordeifel wildlife park, amidst a historic cultural and natural landscape, makes us even more committed to environmental protection at the highest level.

Committed to the future: conserving natural resources such as raw materials, energy, water, air and soil, as well as constantly reducing our environmental impact are a way of life for us – and part of our active responsibility to future generations.

Committed to continuous improvement: in order to continuously improve our environmental performance and meet future requirements, we regularly record the impact of our production processes on the environment, assess the risks, identify potential areas for improvement, set ourselves targets for improvement and develop innovative solutions.

Certified: Schwermetall Halbzeugwerk GmbH & Co. KG was one of the first companies in Europe to join the voluntary Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) in 1995. In 2004, our company was certified according to ISO 14001 – the global standard for environmental management systems.

This certified environmental management system is checked at regular intervals by an external body for compliance with the relevant regulations.
