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.
At SATTLER, we focus on sustainability and environmental awareness.
That is why we conduct ongoing employee training on the topic of sustainability in our "SATTLER Academy" e-learning platform. The goal of these trainings is to raise our employees' awareness of the importance of sustainable practices in our company.
In recent years, we have started an extensive process to convert our vehicle fleet to electric vehicles.
This is another important step towards sustainability. Compared to combustion engines, electric vehicles emit significantly less CO2, thus contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
Just over 1 million kWh of green power is generated annually by our PV system! A total of 2700 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.
SATTLER PRO-TEX membranes meet all regulations regarding both safety standards and environmental protection in all areas of application and beyond. As a responsible manufacturer, it is our mission to produce products according to the highest health and environmental standards and to always offer the optimal safety for users.
We have been an official partner of VinylPlus® for years.
VinylPlus® is the commitment of the European PVC industry to sustainable development.
With VinylPlus, the European PVC industry creates a long-term sustainability framework for the entire PVC value chain and improves the sustainability and circularity of PVC products and their contribution to a sustainable society. It includes the EU-27, Norway, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
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.
A list of companies that recycle PVC membranes can be found at the bottom of this page.
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.
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.
