Envi­ron­men­tal manage­ment at Kettelhack 

Envi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion and the con­ser­va­ti­on of resour­ces are important com­pon­ents in our com­pa­ny. With our envi­ron­men­tal manage­ment sys­tem in accordance with the Euro­pean stan­dard EMAS, we pur­sue a holistic approach to the topic of the envi­ron­ment. Sin­ce 2020, the STeP by OEKO-TEX® cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on has sup­ple­men­ted the sys­temic requi­re­ments of EMAS.

Our inter­di­sci­pli­na­ry envi­ron­men­tal team, con­sis­ting of the Sus­taina­bi­li­ty Mana­ger and the Tech­ni­cal Mana­ger, ensu­res that the envi­ron­men­tal manage­ment sys­tem is imple­men­ted holisti­cal­ly and ful­ly embraced by all colleagues.
