Our principles

 

As a company with great responsibility towards the environment, our most important principle is prevention, the continuous decrease of the effects our activities have on the environment.

The most important element of our industrial ecology is cleaner production, energy rationalization, the protection of air cleanness, noise protection, the treatment of waste water, the compensation of ground water and waste treatment. Our fundamental and most important aim is to fully meet the requirements laid out in the IPPC (Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control) licence, which has been confirmed by the annual audit.

 
 
In the course of our developments and investments we always strive to employ the most cutting-edge technologies. As a result, over the years there has been a significant decrease in our energy and water consumption, while the proportion of our recycled waste has grown.
An important part of our environmental policy is the environment-conscious work of our colleagues. Trainings on environment protection and so called green inspections in our plants have now become part of our everyday life.
 
The environment protection-related tasks of the departments are put down in the Code of Environment Protection and our Environmental Protection Division makes a report on environment protection each year.Our laboratory of environment protection is an accredited laboratory since 1998 and can be found at our headquarters. Its most important task is the operation of the company’s industrial waste water self-control system and the examination of waste.
Further, more detailed information about our measures towards energy consumption, waste and water treatment and the protection air cleanness can be found at the "Responsibility" menu point.
