In recent years, several measures have been implemented to improve the ecological balance:
- Production waste is fed back into the internal material cycle
- Waste is recycled and used externally for the production of other products, e.g. for waste water pipes
- With new energy-efficient machines, electricity savings of 30% have been achieved
- The electricity is 100% generated from hydropower
- The production halls are heated using the waste heat from the machines
Although a lot has been done, we are not resting on our laurels and are always looking for further opportunities for improvement. With B1.GREEN, we are bringing a drinks bottle to the market that is made of bio-based plastic. With this product innovation, we focus on renewable raw materials to replace fossil oil. Further steps for more sustainability will follow in the coming years.
