Environmental and energy policy of Wieland-Werke AG

Wieland-Werke AG is conscious of its responsibility to nature and to society. Our environmental and energy policy aims to contribute towards protecting our environment and sustaining its quality for the life of the community in general.

Environmental protection and the economical use of energy and resources are a managerial task. Environmental interests and the economical use of energy are considered in all the decisions taken in the Company.

In essence, this means:

  • We undertake to continually improve environmental protection within the Company. This includes the prevention of pollution, such as emissions and waste, as well as the improvement in the energy efficiency of processes.
  • From the development stage on, we ensure that our products are manufactured in as ecologically sound a manner as possible. Thanks to the technical properties of our products, their use frequently leads to an improvement in the energy efficiency of our processes. Since copper and copper alloys are 100 % recyclable, our products are infinitely recyclable.
  • We meet all legal obligations as well as other commitments undertaken by us regarding environmental protection, energy use, energy consumption and energy efficiency.
  • In accordance with the principles of this policy, we define concrete goals in order to realise the above mentioned improvements. To this end, we provide any information and resources necessary.
  • We conduct an open dialogue with our customers, suppliers, public authorities, trade and professional organisations and cooperate with them in a constructive manner. This includes the publication of the principles of our environmental and energy policy.
  • We expect our service providers and suppliers to act in accordance with the principles defined in this policy. This equally applies to the delivery of products and services.
  • We review our divisions and processes on a regular basis in order to determine whether we have achieved our goals and to ascertain whether the management systems are effective. We continually improve our environmental and energy management system.
