Sustainability

We are actively committed to greater sustainability

The protection of our environment and climate has always been very important to AMF-Bruns. This is why we consider all factors which are relevant to the environment for all of the processes in our company. The result is consistent environmental management which contributes to saving natural resources and to the protection of the environment.

As of 2013, we are exclusively using electricity generated from hydropower and are also obtaining 100 % of the gas we use from renewable sources.
We are also actively committed to increased sustainability in other areas, such as in logistics. In addition to a considerable reduction in packaging materials, we have also been using thinner foils for some time now, enabling further significant saving benefits. Furthermore, resource-efficient paper is now exclusively used at AMF-Bruns.

To ensure that sustainability becomes a key part of our corporate culture, we also always invite our employees to integrate environmental protection into their daily activities and to come up with new ideas to make work processes at AMF-Bruns even more resource-efficient, for a future with a high quality of life in a healthy environment.


Water

Water consumption for the manufacture of our products has been reduced by 17% in recent years through various optimisation measures.

Power

AMF-Bruns has been exclusively obtaining renewable energy from hydropower since the beginning of 2013, with no harmful CO2 emissions produced from the generation of the energy. With regard to 2013 till 2017, this enabled approximately 3,320 tonnes of CO2 to be reduced and compensated in terms of climate effect.

Recycling

AMF-Bruns only uses resource-efficient recycled paper for its office supplies, promotional materials and packaging. 21% of our waste is now also recycled.

Mobility

Environmental factors are considered in the planning of business trips at AMF-Bruns. We also provide our employees with petrol-saving training and encourage the establishment of car pools.

Waste prevention

In addition to a considerable reduction in the amount of packaging materials used, we have also been using thinner foils in this area for some time now, enabling further significant saving benefits.

Logistics

We have reduced the amount of packaging materials used at AMF-Bruns by 24% in recent years. This protects important resources and reduces emissions.

Heating & process heat

AMF-Bruns has been obtaining gas from renewable sources since the beginning of 2013. With regard to 2013 till 2017, this enabled approximately 2,061 tonnes of CO2 to be reduced and compensated in terms of climate effect.
