Environmentdecor metall assumes responsibility for the environment

Responsibility with regards to the environment means taking a comprehensive view of the subject and acting accordingly. Therefore, our commitment to the environment stretches across the entire supply chain: procurement, manufacturing and the properties of the final product. Many measures are taken for the implementation: the compliance with environmental directives, a reduction of chemical substances that are harmful to health or environment, the environmental representative, the purchasing of certified wood and our certified environment management system (according to ISO 14001/EMAS III).

 

Protection of the Environment at decor metall 

Environmentally friendly manufacturing processes:

  • Air pollution control and water savings especially by reduction of emissions in surface finishing (powder coating with solvent-free/emission-free paint, free of formaldehyde/PCB)
  • Energy efficiency/CO2 reduction with targeted use of energy/energy recycling and the use of efficient devices
  • Reduction of energy consumption, emissions and waste as a consequence of continuous process improvement

Careful use of resources:

  • Corporate culture that fosters environmental consciousness (e.g. by offering specialized training courses in resources and energy saving)
  • Reduction of waste in the context of a comprehensive waste management system (avoidance of waste and increase of recycling)
  • Efficient logistics by way of optimized routing and use of a less fuel consuming vehicle fleet

 

Environmental purchasing considerations

  • Reduction of chemical substances that are harmful to health or environment and information about materials and ingredients
  • Preferred cooperation with partners with (environmental) certificates

 

Environmental product considerations

  • We consider and respect environmental aspects in product design and development
  • Overall recyclability of products due to the modular shop-system
  • Preferred use of environmentally friendly materials (e.g. steel because of its longer economic life and complete recyclability)
  • Purchasing of natural raw materials and renewable resources (from certified sources)
  • Selection of electronic components based on their energy efficiency (particularly lightning or cooling components)
  • Manufacturing "made in Germany" and avoidance of long transport routes by purchasing local
  • Optimized transport and installation logistics
  • Avoidance of waste by packaging optimization and use of recyclable material
  • Taking back and recycling of products
