Environment and Social Issues – Sustainability at KSM Castings
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.
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. 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.
