PHILOSOPHY OF QUALITYPolicy of Integrated Management System PDF
SAFETY AT WORKLabour safety ranks high in our corporate culture. Our aim is to prevent accidents at work. To this effect, all employees are included in our preventive safety concept that helps avoid criticial situations. If an accident at work does occur, it is carefully analyzed, and improvements are made to eliminate the cause.
ENERGY MANAGEMENTWe have always attached great importance to energy management in our manufacturing processes, which is not least demonstrated by the combined heat and power stations in operation at our Baruth, Gütersloh and Neumarkt sites. As a part of this management system, energy planning is carried out in coordination with the distribution, production and purchasing areas involved. Regularly updated at frequent intervals, energy planning takes account of forward-looking assessments and actual consumption. Based on energy data collected in 2011 at all our sites, we regularly assess and analyze the usage and consumption of energy, thereby creating energy registers that are regularly updated. These energy registers form the basis for identifying improvement potentials in the energy field. In the assessment, we consider changes of important elements of the energy management system, such as energy consumption, key figures, measures and targets in the field of energy. As we assess trends that have actually materialized, we also review the effectiveness of planned and executed measures.
