In harmony with natureActive environmental protection is a core component of our corporate principles. We emphasize the protection of natural resources and harmony with nature in the design, development, manufacture and use of our products.
The foundational environmental statements of the "Roth Industries" group are also a part of the Roth Hydraulics company philosophy.
The responsibility for our natural habitat obliges us to protect the environment and go above and beyond the legal requirements. We do what we can to significantly reduce our CO2 output.
Our product concepts are designed so as to protect the environment from damage through the use of environmentally friendly materials, typically special metals and non-ferrous metals. The use of carefully selected materials along with our system technologies ensure the longevity of our product ranges. They have been tried and tested by decades of use.
Through innovative product solutions, we make production processes that consume less energy with the same level of efficiency or even better.
The use of recyclable materials for the manufacture of our product systems is mandatory in our development process.
Active environmental protection at Roth Hydraulics
We are aware of our responsibility to the economy and society in all our actions. With the establishment, implementation and certification of an environmental management system according to DIN EN ISO 14001, we are committed to the continuous improvement of our environmental performance.
DIN EN ISO 14001 is an international environmental management standard that sets the globally recognized requirements for an environmental management system with the aim of promoting environmental protection and preventing pollution.
The standard focuses on a continuous improvement process. To meet this standard, strict demands are made to develop an effective environmental management system.
This includes identifying the environmental aspects, the determination of a company environmental policy and the creation of environmental targets in the context of an environmental program.
In order to continuously improve our actions in environmental protection and ensure compliance with the relevant environmental legislation, we are guided by the objectives of the environmental policy.
The environmental policy covers the company principles in detail. The environmental policy is core to our everyday operations.
Description of environmental aspects
An important instrument of our environmental management system is the systematic collection and evaluation of all environmental aspects related to activities, facilities and services that have an impact on the environment.
The evaluation takes place after the identification of these environmental aspects. The recording and evaluation take place separately for all departments and areas of the company and are expanded annually.
In addition, a comprehensive evaluation of the entire company takes place and is recorded in the evaluation.
No plants that require approval according to the Federal Emissions Control Act ("BImSchG") are operated at the site. All plants subject to water laws (in general, the Ordinance on Installations for the Handling of Substances Hazardous to Water, "VAwS") have the approval of the relevant authority. Electricity, fuel oil and LPG are used as energy sources on site.
The following overview presents in detail the environmental aspects for the entire site and the assessment scheme.
