Sustainable development for environment and society

Environmental protection is an integral part of our company. It is our goal to bring about a lasting reduction in the amount of waste, waste water and emissions we produce. The effects of this show that ecology and economy are in harmony.

Environmental management

Our certified environmental management system brings together all of our activities which are focused on achieving sustainable environmental protection. The aim of the system is to systematically and constantly optimize environmental protection. It is constantly undergoing further development.


Conservation of resources at KSM means, in addition to using raw materials, auxiliary materials and operating materials which are relevant to the environment sparingly, the circulation of materials in our plants in particular. We evaluate these materials, technical installations and services according to ecological aspects prior to procurement. In addition, we ask our suppliers and service providers to satisfy a minimum, ecological standard and to continually improve their environmental performances.

Water and waste water

We have established processes in order to use as little freshwater as possible and to reduce the volumes of waste water.


Avoidance of waste has priority over recycling at KSM. We process waste partly ourselves and, in addition, reduce transport operations by compacting waste.

Energy and emissions

We implement numerous technical and organizational measures with the aim of constantly reducing our consumption of natural gas and electricity and thus minimizing our CO2 emissions.

Hazardous substances

We have put in place an appropriate procedure for the utilization and procurement of hazardous substances in order to ensure that substances used in productionrepresent as low a potential riskas possible.

Industrial safety

We attach a great deal of importance to industrial safety and healthprotection at KSM. The core instrument for systematically and constantly optimizing these are risk analyses which are intended to detect risks before injuries and illnesses occur.

Open communications

We want to inform all customers, suppliers and the immediate population of our environmental activities since, in our opinion, social skills are the responsibility of every industrial operation.
