Environmental Protection

Highest possible responsibility in environmental issues

In order to guarantee the product quality demanded by our customers, to fulfil the statutory requirements, and to continuously improve our company processes, Siempelkamp Giesserei has installed an integrated management system for quality, environmental protection and occupational health and safety.

Environmental protection and management have been an established component of the company policy at Siempelkamp Giesserei for over 30 years now, in order to protect the environment and the company's neighbours, and to ensure the safety of the production processes. Openness and willingness to communicate on these matters are valued very highly by the executive management. It is our view that environmental protection cannot be reduced to simply fulfilling statutory and official requirements. Despite the fact that we are not bound by air pollution control legislation to continuously monitor our operations in the terms of the Federal Emissions Law, three emissions points on the plant grounds of the foundry will be monitored from October 2012 by an "emission monitoring system". The environmental awareness of our employees is regularly promoted through training courses and periodic environmental audits.
