Environmental Policy

"May you live your life as if the maxim of your actions were to become universal law." (Immanuel Kant, 1724 - 1804)

Our environmental policy establishes the environmental protection principles that our company follows in its activities. It is established by company management and is generally binding to all company activities and valid at all company locations.

We consider nature, society, the economy and each and every company as part of one ecological system, the balance and variety of which is essential for the continued existence of all life and, as a commercial company, we recognise our special responsibility to preserve natural living conditions.

We are convinced that the careful use of our free resources, water, air and soil, as well as the flora and fauna must be secured with the tools of a market economy and that common efforts must be made to achieve continuous improvements.

We see major entrepreneurial opportunities in an environmentally oriented, free market economy that will also ensure the well-being of future generations.

As a medium-sized company, we can only exist when we set ourselves the goal of achieving sustainable development from an economic, ecological and social point of view.

With this in mind, we commit ourselves to act in accordance with the following principles:

  • GEVAG regards the safety and protection of humans and their environment as a matter of great importance. Company management will regularly check the environmental guidelines for new requirements, create procedures for their effective implementation in practice and provide the necessary financial means.
  • GEVAG raises the awareness of all its employees regarding their personal responsibility for the environment and makes them more conscious of potential environmental pollutants resulting from our corporate activities and products.
  • GEVAG promotes and rewards the efforts of its employees in improving the company's environmental efforts by immediately evaluating all suggestions for improvements.
  • GEVAG takes the public's questions and concerns regarding its products and corporate activities very seriously and depicts its processes / organisation in a transparent manner.
  • GEVAG obliges the firms who work on behalf of the company to adhere to safety, health and environmental standards.
  • GEVAG makes careful use of resources.
  • GEVAG considers relevant national legal and regulatory stipulations as minimum requirements and the entire company strives for a higher level of safety, health and environmental conservation. "
