Environmental protection for and from generations: G&S
Goerg & Schneider attaches great importance to energy efficiency. Since 2012 the company has had an energy management system and was awarded with the raw material prize of Rhineland-Palatinate in the same year.
Machines, vehicles and plants are state-of-the-art, modern cross-section technology is installed.
Electrical devices are continuously maintained, LED-technology, energy-saving bulbs and motion detectors are used for lightning.
The administration building built in 2019 is a low-energy construction and is heated, ventilated and cooled by an air-source-heat pump facility. All other buildings are also thermally optimized.
Due to low-waste product design – and processing as well as reusable big bags and pallets, the company reduces packing materials and follows the packing regulations. Due to the investment in a new shrinkage coiler, the consumption of foils can be significantly reduced.
The transport of the raw clays to the customer is carried out by truck, by vessel ex Rhine port and via the company's own railway siding.
In 2004 and 2006 we already set up a photovoltaic system. We are making further investments in photovoltaic systems on the roofs of factory buildings in order to reduce CO2 emissions. The purchase of battery storage devices as well as the cooperation with a power cooperative improves our own power provision by renewable energies at our factory in Boden.
