German Institute for Sustainability & Ecology
Since 2020 we have been certified by the German Institute for Sustainability and Ecology in the areas of ecology, economy and social competence (Code of Procedure D-20/400851). This officially confirms our extraordinary quality of products, services and consulting, our economic future orientation and our corporate management as well as our perception of ecological and social responsibility.
For the year 2020, va-Q-tec is the first supplier of temperature-controlled packaging solutions as well as a producer of high-tech insulation materials to achieve climate neutrality for its production sites. In 2020, emissions amounting to 1,700t of CO2 have already been reduced through process optimizations and various energy-saving measures. By supporting internationally recognized climate protection projects in Germany and Uruguay, the remaining emissions are compensated.
Since 2017 we have had a certified environmental management system (ISO certification ISO 14001:2015). This international standard confirms our environmental management system with which we improve our performance for the benefit of the environment, fulfil legal and other obligations and achieve environmental goals.
Furthermore, we have been certified according to ISO 50001:2018 for our energy management system since 2019. Our goal is to systematically improve the efficiency of energy management, energy efficiency and energy saving.
