Environmental protection is a central element of our corporate culture. This is why we have published detailed guidelines on environmental policy – as an aid to navigation in environmentally responsible thinking and action by all employees and by our partners and associates.
We deploy the best available economically rational technology for operation of our facilities, with the constant aim of ensuring the very greatest degree of safety for people and the environment. Safe handling is supported by continuous checks and maintenance. Adherence to all legal and official requirements is a matter of course - and we make all efforts, in fact, to perform better than they require.
The environment must never be burdened by the company's activities more than is absolutely necessary. For this reason, we use material resources and energy as economically as possible, and take care to minimise emissions and waste. The avoidance of waste takes priority over pollution-free recycling and disposal. Our environmental impact is quantified, evaluated and lessened if necessary at regular intervals. Programmes for the minimisation of air pollutants and noise, water consumption and waste, and for the conservation of resources such as energy and water, are implemented and updated regularly.
Environmental-protection measures are assigned priority over essential elements of the production process and end-of-pipe provisions. We continuously further develop our production processes with the aim of also improving our environmental performance.
All employees bear responsibility for the attainment of Dillinger's environmental-protection targets. Our aim is to systematically expand and refine our environmental knowledge and employees' abilities for responsible action.
Dillinger operates, both internally and externally, a policy of openly informing employees, customers, the public and authorities on environmental-protection activities in an appropriate form. We at all times seek factual, objective, frank and comprehensive dialogue.
Environmentally low-impact production and environmentally safe products are the preconditions for assurance of the company's long-term existence. This naturally implies active, forward-planning ecological management. Dillinger has set up its own organisational structure for environmental management as an essential element in the implementation of its environmental policy and its environmental code.
The REACH European chemicals regulations are intended to assure a high level of safety for both people and the environment. Our information for customers and suppliers aims to inform them on the basic principles and the application of these regulations. It is addressed to the users of the products made and marketed by the Dillinger Group – Aktien-Gesellschaft der Dillinger Hüttenwerke and its affiliated companies, ROGESA Roheisengesellschaft Saar mbH (iron smelting) and ZKS Zentralkokerei Saar GmbH (coke production).
Innovative top-quality steel products, total orientation around our customers' needs and unceasing technological development in close cooperation with our partners form the basis of our success - as they have for more than 333 years.
