MISSION SUSTAINABILITY

SCHLENKER ATTACH GREAT IMPORTANCE TO SUSTAINABILITY

We at Schlenker Spannwerkzeuge attach great importance to sustainability and a responsible approach to our environment. We conserve resources when developing new technologies and consciously face the resulting environmental as well as economic challenges. Corporate success and responsible action are not contradictory for us!

THINK DIFFERENT, GO ECO

SAVE AND GENERATE ENERGY

We pay attention to a constant reduction of our energy consumption by switching to LED lighting, optimizing our production processes and sorting out obsolete machines as well as by switching to machines or assets with highly efficient motors. In addition, we place a great importance on sustainable energy production. For this reason, we produce our own electricity through a photovoltaic system on the roof. We also use our combined heat and power units to generate electricity in addition to heat, and in summer we can use them for air conditioning the building through absorption refrigeration systems. Another sustainable option for heating the production and office building is also provided by the exhaust heat from our production machines.

FOR THE LOVE OF THE ENVIRONMENT – DIGITALIZATION AT SCHLENKER

We also see the digitalization of our processes as a great opportunity to work sustainably. In this way, we offer digital and simple customer support, thus saving on travel. For the love of the environment, we also completely waived the sending of paper invoices by switching our system to e-invoices.

ECOLOGICAL WASTE MANAGEMENT AND PACKAGING MATERIALS

Waste management plays a major role in sustainability order to protect the climate and save resources. We pay close attention to consistent waste separation by qualified disposal companies. In addition, we are always reducing plastic in our shipping and packaging materials. For this reason, we only use ecologically degradable paper tape.

SUSTAINABLE EMPLOYEE DEVELOPMENT AT SCHLENKER

However, we understand sustainability not only in the sense of environmental protection, but also in terms of employee development. We attach great importance to offering secure jobs with fair pay. Inclusion is also very important to us. We help employees with physical or mental disabilities to realize their potential on the job and to find the right position in the company. To protect our employees, we are constantly working on new goals with our external service provider for work safety.
