Companies like Westag AG bear a great deal of social responsibility, and that increasingly includes environmental aspects too. We know that the conservation and long-term preservation of nature and the environment lies in part in our hands. And Westag AG behaves accordingly:
- We are investing in environmentally friendly production processes. For example, we are optimizing existing equipment to this end, as in the case of the spray-painting robot in our door factory, which has been using water-soluble paints only since 2008.
- We are building and using equipment with special capabilities. In addition to the CHP plant that we use to generate superheated steam and energy, we have a sophisticated flue-gas dust-absorption system which ensures that our emissions adhere to or even fall below the legally prescribed limits.
We have summarised further information on our future orientation in a position paper "Materializing Sustainability".
