Creating energy, saving energy

Sustainable productivity

We manufacture premium-quality steel products using state-of-the-art production technology. As this requires considerable amounts of energy, we decided to implement sustainable energy management at an early stage.

Schmiedewerke Gröditz's energy management is certified in accordance with the international standard ISO 50001. You can view the certificate here.

Our initial certification in conformity with DIN EN 16001 - the previously applicable standard - was obtained in 2011. Sustainable, efficient management of resources is one of our primary measures for achieving climate protection goals. This also involves reducing our consumption of electrical energy as much as possible and increasing energy efficiency across the entire company. Continual improvement  in recording data on energy consumption as well as communicating this to the individual production areas is also essential. We are continuously analysing and optimising the energy efficiency of our processes.

We not only comply with the applicable standards and laws but also go beyond these by pursuing additional climate protection goals we have set for ourselves. An energy manager supports the departments within the company to help them achieve these goals. We make efforts to ensure that our teams are always environmentally conscious in the way they use resources  and we encourage our employees to suggest ways in which we can improve our energy efficiency.
