In the endeavour to improve the protection of the environment in the scope of the industrial production, a constant improvement of the company’s environmental policy is to be forced. Consequently, environmental protection is traditionally of significant importance to SKD.
Sustainable measures for environmental care basically require an analysis of the internal material flow. On this basis, SKD introduced an environmental management system according to DIN EN ISO 14001 – the certification has been extended for another three years by the Technical Control Board North Cert in 2015.
This means, for example, to use raw materials efficiently, to optimize production processes under the consideration of ecological aspects and to close material cycles. But this is also standing for selecting the material choice of product components during the time of development in a manner to allow a later return into the raw material cycle at any time without problems. This way, natural resources are treated with care in consideration of sustainability.
SKD will continue to work on innovative solutions and improvements of its environmental management system, since ecological targets being reached support permanent economical success.
