Principles of Schmersal’s energy policy
In the Schmersal Group, the best possible reduction of specific energy consumption is an important element of the company policy. We have defined the principles of our energy policy and our energy targets on a binding basis for our company.
We see it as our duty to minimise consumption of energy where technically and economically feasible and by means of considered processes. Our responsibility in handling energy and other resources requires us to determine our energy consumption, comply with defined energy targets and programmes and check our actions against measurable standards.
At our German sites, we have already introduced a consistent energy management system which has been certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 50001 with a view to gradually increasing our energy efficiency in line with a continuous improvement process, reducing energy costs and significantly curbing environmental impact. For the whole company, we regularly draw up energy statements in order to determine and capitalise on savings potential.
