Environment

Krones' activities in terms of ecology are geared towards achieving the greatest possible efficiency in the use of resources.

We want to reduce our CO2 emissions (Scope 1 and Scope 2) per million euros of turnover by 30 to 40 per cent by the year 2020. Our CO2 reduction target is still achievable: In 2016 our total direct and indirect energy-related emissions decreased by 5.9 per cent. The use of carbon-neutral district heating, electricity generated on-site and a higher share of renewables contribute to further progress.

It is important for Krones that the staff, too, are involved in the realisation of activities that uses resources sparingly. The "Improvement Idea Space" platform allows all staff to contribute their own suggestions for improving the use of materials or energy consumption into the processes.

By these measures Krones recognises its responsibility to protect the environment and the earth's climate. This applies both for the products that Krones delivers to its customers and to its own production.

Environmental protection at Krones

Insofar as it is financially viable, we utilise all the options available for sustainable care and upgrading of our production facilities, while not only complying with the statutory limit values but also keeping well below them wherever possible.

Within the context of certification of the eco-management system by TÜV SÜD, we have precisely identified the processes and evaluated all the environmental aspects involved. This is an ideal tool for accelerating the continuous improvement process in terms of minimising our environmental impact.

Eco-relevant statistics

The most important indicators for assessing our production and environmental performance are the statistics on energy, waste management, water management and emissions. You will find an overview of the relevant environmental data in our CSR report.

Exemplified by sustainable use of resources at the plant in Rosenheim

At Krones’ facility in Rosenheim, all resources are used efficiently. “Here, all reusable materials are either recovered, treated or used in a cogeneration plant to produce energy for the district heating network. We thus achieve a closed energy circuit, and manage to cover our needs for heat and warm water without consuming any primary energy”, to quote Dr. Helmut Schwarz, Plant Manager in Rosenheim.
