Environmental effects in view

Environmental management plays a central role for us – also because many resource aspects are closely linked to our business activities. Our sustainability strategy focuses on climate protection, energy, and materials.

Careful handling of environmental impacts

Various auxiliary and operating materials used during the production process are subject to hazardous goods and hazardous materials regulations. This applies, for example, to paints, (flue) gases, greases, oils, adhesives or cleaning agents.

Reducing energy consumption and emissions

Our goal is to reduce CO2 emissions per trailer by half by 2035. The zero measurement is currently being prepared on the basis of financial years 2019 / 20 and 2020 / 21. The values are being recorded step by step and specifications for implementation in the various plants are being drawn up.

Careful approach to auxiliary and operating materials

At our production facilities, the waste is disposed of by professional disposal companies. The production at our plants uses many recyclable materials. Clean collection and separation as well as the reduction of production waste are essential starting points for establishing a circular economy.
