Sustainability at SCHLEIFRING

[Translate to English:] Unternehmen

A Special Company

Respect for the environment plays a central role in our product development and all our work processes. We want to leave a clean ecological footprint and are proud of our positive environmental balance. Our decision to install geothermal systems, green roofs as well as photovoltaic systems is the fundamental basis of our sustainability concept. Covered cycle shelters and electric charging stations also enable our employees to follow this concept and get to and from work in an environmentally friendly manner.

[Translate to English:] Soziale Verantwortung

Social Responsibility -
The Human Being at Centre Stage

As a global company, we consider social responsibility to be an important issue. We also attach great importance to promoting the well-being of our employees as well as supporting social projects. Corporate social responsibility (CSR) at SCHLEIFRING means: We are committed to helping, first and foremost, children and families and support selected charitable projects in our region.  For us, solidarity means sharing responsibility for our fellow human beings and investing part of our profits in society in general.

[Translate to English:] Teamwork

Teamwork and Mutual Esteem –

The corporate culture at SCHLEIFRING is distinguished by relaxed, but respectful personal interactions as well as social and ecological responsibility. We pay attention to each other’s needs, learn from each other and treat each other with respect. We support our staff to enable them to optimally develop their skills and talents, and we also protect them through optimum working conditions, training courses and supplementary company health insurance as well as a corresponding company pension scheme.

Conserve Resources

SCHLEIFRING develops energy-efficient technologies that are fit for the future, avoids waste and recycles old parts.  During the recycling process, the different components are dismantled into their individual parts at the end of their operating life and then fed into the recycling system. Parts that cannot be recycled are disposed of correctly. We check and improve these processes constantly, train our employees and make awareness of the resources entrusted to us and our environment part of our daily actions.

[Translate to English:] CO2 Reduktion

Living Space on the Roof –
CO² Reduction & Temperature Equalisation

Roof greening instead of industrial flat roof: A conscious decision for the extension of the green spaces, for additional living space and for binding of pollutants. In conjunction with the adjacent natural environment, this makes an important contribution to the survival of endangered species such as bumblebees and wild bees. In addition, green roofs bind pollutants and CO² and, in turn, contribute to flood prevention. Furthermore, the UV radiation is unable to directly reach the roof-waterproofing layer. Peak temperatures are lowered in summer and cold temperatures are compensated for in winter. This saves energy and protects the environment – now and in the future.

[Translate to English:] Qualität und Langlebigkeit

Quality and Durabilityt –
The Product Life Cycle in Focus

We set great store by the use of high-quality materials and the latest manufacturing processes in order to achieve and maintain our goal of ensuring the durability of our products. Technical progress enables us to offer low-maintenance, certified slip rings and thus reduces the customer’s workload and energy consumption. We continually check the entire value-added chain, this includes the analysis and evaluation of every phase of the product life cycle. We qualify our suppliers and ensure that our packaging is environmentally friendly and make sure our production sites in foreign countries are also bound by this concept.
