CeramTec Sustainability Policy

Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)

Put Responsibility into Practice

We consistently implement our basic principles of sustainable, responsible business management. Our efforts clearly pay off by conserving energy and protecting the environment and our natural resources. This is reflected in our social commitment for people in the community and our employees, in our training programs, equal opportunities, development and growth and health and safety. The primary goal of our ISO 14001-certified environmental management system is to promote environmental protection and prevent environmental pollution in line with financial, social and political requirements. Our energy management system, which is certified according to DIN ISO EN 50001, takes every aspect of the company into account – from processes, methods and materials, to products, buildings and facilities – to increase energy efficiency and sustainably reduce energy consumption. Our achievements are clearly visible in the key performance indicators outlined in this table. And we will continue to strengthen this commitment in the future.
