Railbound transport systems for passengers and freight are helping greatly to conserve the environment and natural resources around the world. This is primarily because they require less energy, use low-emission systems and take up comparatively little space in the environment.
For this reason, protecting the environment is also of great importance to Elektro-Thermit GmbH & Co. KG. Our employees are full aware of the responsibility they bear in their use of natural resources. Actively working to conserve and improve our environment is part of their daily work. The production and application of our products are based on environmentally compatible technologies and strict adherence to laws and regulations. The most important thing here is to use raw materials in an ecologically and economically sensible manner and employ materials that can be recycled. We are constantly working on reducing waste and emissions, as well as lowering the requirements for energy and resources.
We call on our employees at all levels to enhance their sense of responsibility toward the environment. We make sure that our environmental policy is effectively implemented and that all necessary technical and organizational processes are regularly checked and optimized.
The environmental management certification according to ISO 14001:2004 of Elektro-Thermit GmbH & Co. in 2011 was a further and particularly important step towards a sustained environmental policy.
