Eco Awards

Trophies to motivate and share

Perfection is but a dream. No one is more aware of this than our colleagues in Production and Processes. Since 2009, we have therefore handed company ‘Continuous Improvement’ awards to distinguish ideas and initiatives for improvements that can be especially well replicated across the company. One aspect considered here is the ecological quality of improvement projects.

Thanks to the projects submitted for the "Eco Award" in 2013 alone, we have been able to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by 1,650 tons per year. In 2014, the award was handed to a team at the Efen site in Uebigau who introduced improvements to the machines, the cooling and lighting systems and the air quality and was thus able to reduce the site's energy consumption by 15 per cent compared with the previous year. Furthermore, use of the coolant R22 was stopped at the plant in order to lower the risk of releasing greenhouse gases.
