Sustainability

Our goal is to keep our impact on the environment as low as possible while maximizing the lifespan of our products.

We see this goal as an obligation.

Sustainability at SATTLER PRO-TEX

For us, sustainability means constantly defining new paths, developing solutions and making decisions with the aim of promoting positive impacts on society and the environment and avoiding negative ones.

To be successful, it is important to think as a collective, to promote awareness and not to put any issue at the back of the queue. Protecting the climate, the health and safety of our employees, and the issue of diversity are just as crucial as good corporate management or the sustainable direction of our supply chains.

We at SATTLER are aware of this task and are determined to further expand our sustainability program and drive it forward in a goal-oriented manner.

More than 1 million kWh from green energy

Just over 1 million kWh of green power is generated annually by our PV system! A total of 880 PV modules are installed on approximately 9,250 m2 of roof surface at the Gössendorf and Rudersdorf sites. Unlike conventional power generation, no CO₂ is released when power is being generated by PV systems, thus SATTLER saves up to 230 tons of CO₂!

Recycling und Reuse

Recycling and reusing our items are important aspects for us. We implement a range of measures to do this. By doing so, we will reduce our ecological footprint and contribute to a sustainable future.

Life cycle assessment

An ecological balance, also known as a life cycle assessment (LCA), is a method of analyzing and evaluating the ecological impact of products and services. It is an important way to understand and evaluate the environmental effects of these products and services, and to ensure that they are designed as environmentally friendly as possible. By carrying out a life cycle analysis (LCA), we have analyzed the potential environmental impact of our products over their entire life cycle. This enables us to identify and optimize potential ecological risks from the production of raw materials to the use of our products. As a result, we can minimize the environmental impact of our products and ensure that they are produced in the most environmentally friendly way possible.

Environmental Management System

For many years, we have been continuously developing our manufacturing processes to better protect the environment. We demonstrate our responsibility towards the environment by implementing an environmental management system according to ISO 14001.
