KRAIBURG Austria was officially awarded an EMAS certificate at the end of September.
Environmental Certification for Kraiburg
Gerold Schachner, Ecology Manager at KRAIBURG, received the certificate at an environment management conference in Vienna from Christian Holzer, Head of the Environment and Recycling Section, representing Austria’s Minister for Environmental Protection, Leonore Gewessler.
With the European environment management system EMAS (Eco Management and Audit Scheme) which has been in existence for more than 25 years, companies are qualified to save resources intelligently and implement central environmental aspects legally and transparently.
“For us, the EMAS certification is a first milestone in the implementation of our new environment strategy,” Schachner commented. “The overriding goal to improve our environmental performance is based here on the premise ‘eliminate – reduce – compensate.’ The focus here is on both the consumption of energy, raw materials and resources and the avoidance or reduction of emissions and waste.”
“We take our staff on board with specific basic and further training possibilities which aim at consolidating sustainable though and action in our company,” added Johann Kammerstetter, the man responsible for quality and environmental management at KRAIBURG Austria.
