The environmental management standard ISO 14001 defines worldwide recognized requirements for an environmental management system. Among other things, the aim of this certification is to make a contribution towards sustainability, and environmentally conscious action is a key factor in this. ISO 9001 is the globally recognized standard for the certification of quality management systems. The guidelines ensure compliance with quality standards in various areas of the company, such as customer, employee and process orientation.
PROLICHT, with its site in Götzens, Austria, has successfully completed the external audits for certification of the ISO standards 9001:2015 (quality management systems; QMS) and ISO 14001:2015 (environmental management systems; EMS).
OUR SUSTAINABLE JOURNEY
We obtain our required energy from a mix of water, wind, biomass, photovoltaics, biogas and other green energy, thus building on a nuclear power-free, CO2-neutral power supply entirely from renewable energy sources. The certificates of origin used are 80.08% from Austria and 19.92% from Norway.
In order to further reduce our CO2 emissions, we are converting our fleet to electric vehicles and at the same time setting up several electric charging stations at our site in Götzens. In doing so, we will reduce the CO2 emissions of our company vehicles by 72.5 tons or 35% in three years.
Neben Verbesserungen im Bezug auf die Verpackung unserer Produkte wird auch laufend der gesamte Produktzyklus von der Erstellung bis zur Auslieferung beim Kunden analysiert. Eine Reduzierung von Abfällen vor allem Kunststoffverpackungen ist ein laufendes Ziel, nicht nur in unserem Headquarter sondern bereits bei der Vermeidung von Abfällen bei Zukaufsteilen
PROLICHT GOES DIGITAL
In order to further reduce our carbon footprint, PROLICHT is constantly optimizing its way of digital collaboration. We try to reduce travels of international employees by online meetings and work on digital product presentations, which will replace our already reduced print materials in the future.
