Invironmeltal policy

Environmental policy of L. Priebs GmbH & Co. KG

L. Priebs GmbH & Co. KG is committed to environmental responsibility towards society and future generations. We want to continually reduce the environmental impacts caused by our products and business processes. This is a matter of course for us to use resources sparingly, with the main focus being on energy saving. We are trying to limit all actions that cause CO2 or to use lower-carbon alternatives. We neutralize the remaining, unavoidable CO2 by supporting a regional project in Germany.

We want to continue the path of CO2 neutrality in the future. A clear goal for us is to use durable materials that meet the requirements of an ecological product design and which are produced and used under socially acceptable conditions.

The basis for our responsible approach to the environment is compliance with environmental laws and regulations. For all procurement, production and marketing activities, our aim is to avoid, recycle and dispose of waste and emissions as much as possible. We are trying to involve our suppliers in our efforts to provide environmental protection, with the traceability of the raw material right up to the producer being extremely important to us.

We offer our employees a corporate climate in which the sense of responsibility for the high quality of our products is promoted. Through human and ecological working conditions in the sense of hygiene, safety and health at the workplace, we also motivate them to act in an environmentally conscious manner.

In communicating with customers, employees, authorities and the public, openness and correct information are the main focus.

With these principles of environmental policy, L. Priebs GmbH & Co. KG is committed to continually improving environmental protection, to continue to act in a climate-neutral manner and to further develop the implementation of established management systems.

Climat neutrality

Climate neutrality – climate protection is an issue for everyone

Our family business, with its more than 200-year tradition, is responsible for the following generations to act environment- and climate-consciously. Carbon dioxide CO2 savings as much as possible, neutralize the unavoidable remainder is our motto.

Nobody can dispense with the use of electricity which often applies to the car, too. However, it is essential to restrict all actions that cause CO2 or to use lower-carbon alternatives. The remaining CO2 which cannot be avoided, can be neutralized. The combination of both is the most effective climate protection.

Since September 2008, L. Priebs GmbH & Co. KG has committed itself to completely neutralize all greenhouse gas emissions caused at the company location. We are currently supporting an energy efficiency project in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.

We are ECOPROFIT certified. Brochure and eco-certificate

L. Priebs GmbH & Co. KG is one of the certified ÖKOPROFIT companies 2011 of the district Recklinghausen, Germany. The project ÖKOPROFIT started in March 2010 with twelve regional companies in the third round. The companies were given the opportunity – with the help of external support from the environmental consulting company B.A.U.M. Consult – to implement an environmental management system. Within a year the participants were trained in eight workshops in different areas such as energy, waste, water, hazardous materials or law. In four on-site appointments with an environmental consultant, the company’s situation was analyzed and environmental measures have been developed.

By participating in ÖKOPROFIT, we want to improve our operational environmental protection and occupational safety, increase efficiency in the use of raw materials and energy and thus save costs. Further information on the Ökoprofit project can be found at: www.oekoprofit-nrw.de.
