It is everyone’s responsibility, especially industry, to use natural resources in a sustainable and accountable manner.
LANKWITZER supports internal and external efforts to act in an environmentally sound manner. We protect our environment and conserve natural resources. From an economic point of view, we also regard environmental protection as an important factor in improving the competitiveness of our company. Through our environmental certification to ISO 14001, we promote the knowledge and motivation of our employees towards environmentally sound behaviour.
Responsible use of resources such as water and energy is also one of our company’s fundamental concerns. This is why LANKWITZER has defined its own claim to continually question the energy efficiency and water consumption of its processes. On the one hand to ensure competitiveness, and on the other hand to make a contribution to environmental and climate protection.
