Working & living sustainably
Even though recycling is already a sustainable business model, CRONIMET also considers it important to use resources and energy efficiently.
With our energy efficiency programme, we aim to conserve resources and reduce energy costs. At our headquarters in Karlsruhe, we have an energy monitoring system that gives us an overview of the energy consumption of all buildings and “bulk consumers” (e.g. the baling machine or the turnings crusher on site). This enables us to identify potential energy savings, reduce stand-by times and comply with threshold values.
In addition to the increasing use of electric grabs and forklifts, we are increasingly relying on hybrid vehicles for our company cars. Through regular energy audits, we are currently rolling out our energy efficiency programme for all subsidiaries. For example, CRONIMET Envirotec, which has had its energy management system certified according to ISO 50001:2011 since 2015, sets high standards.
