Management System

Environmental Management

Hörmann Automotive Penzberg is committed to maintaining and protectin the environment. Our environmental policies, including an emphasis on low emission production technologies and recycling, are given the highest priority throughout the production chain.  

In 2009, we switched from natural gas to a CO2-neutral gas supply, which plays a key role in active protection of the environment and climate. Further CO2-emissions reductions have already been achieved via emissions trading and through permits – the so-called Certified Emission Reduction units (CER) – under the supervision of international climate protection initiatives.

Hörmann Automotive Penzberg is also acutely aware of the impact of other health, safety and environmental issues, including waste disposal, protection of resources and noise pollution: by utilizing the latest technologies, process water is recycled and re-used multiple times. To eliminate health and safety risks posed by the transportation of hazardous substances, all coatings chemicals are safely stored in a centrally managed warehouse. To reduce noise pollution and its negative effects on the health and wellbeing of both our staff and neighbours, we have relocated any activities associated with particularly high levels of noise to more isolated areas within our facilities.

Our environmental management system is audited and certified in compliance with DIN EN ISO 14001:2005. In addition, we voluntarily participate in EMAS II, the Eco-Management and Audit Scheme initiated by the European Union. Regular analysis is undertaken of the company’s environmental impact through an assessment process and the appropriate corrective measures are implemented accordingly.

Our Integrated Management System aims for the continuous improvement of both our business performance and our environmental management system. Our mission is to provide the highest level of quality to our customers, to protect the environment and natural resources, and to reduce costs and improve efficiency.
And we are proud to say that we are able to achieve our aims each and every day.
