We should expect manufactures to ensure the Environment and Sustainability are a number one priority.
The term “sustainability” comes originally from the area of forestry and means caring for and using forest areas in ways that take ecological, economical, and social aspects into consideration. But it is not just because wood is the most important material for SieMatic products that the topic of “sustainability” has always ranked highly here. True to our corporate motto, “Preferring the best”, SieMatic’s environmental efforts go far beyond the standard for the industry.
SieMatic, through a growing number of effective measures, make consistent and exemplary use of the latest ecological findings in every area of the company and get confirmation of these measures and their results from a neutral party. Naturally, the testers in this area are also tested well, in order to ensure that the environmental certificates won by the company and SieMatic products are trustworthy, transparent, and meaningful
Check the auditors
There are always words that everyone talks about yet whose significance diminishes easily as a result. The word, “sustainability” is one of them. Not everyone who claims to subscribe to the cause actually practices it. The term originates from forestry and refers to the support and use of forests under ecological, economic and social criteria. Because wood is the most important material for our products, the topic of “sustainability” has always had a particularly special meaning at SieMatic. Our corporate motto is consistent with our preference to always do the best for our environment. Therefore, SieMatic’s environmental standards have always exceeded those of the industry. One must also examine the examiners. This is especially pertinent today with the recent flood of labels and agencies, many of which lack the same respect, transparency and significance as those environmental certifications awarded to SieMatic and its products.
SieMatic has a fully integrated quality and environmental management system
SieMatic is not only certified under the international DIN-Norm EN ISO 9001:2008 for quality, but also under the special environmental management standard, ISO 14001.
These certifications ensure that SieMatic products and manufacturing processes are continuously optimized for quality and environmental standards under the PDCA-method (Plan-Do-Check-Act) so that the defined goals are achieved.
SieMatic has a fully integrated quality and environmental management system based on the international DIN standards EN ISO 9001:2008 as well as ISO 14001. They are the cornerstones of any company’s “Excellence Strategy“ for environmental responsibility.
At SieMatic, the enforcement of these standards is guaranteed by numerous internal and external audits. The majority of our materials are derived from a renewable and recyclable material: wood.
Using advanced management of wood by-product from our machinery, we ensure optimal usage of material with minimal waste. The remaining wood by-product is 100% recycled, i.e. converted to energy in our own on-site heating plant. This prevents us from having to burn oil and allows us to use a material with very good CO2 balance since the growing trees absorb the emitted CO2.
The efficiency of our production plant enables us in many respects to achieve low energy consumption. Exhaust air from the manufacturing facility is kept to a minimum by our systems.
