The balance between economic efficiency and ecology is a critical factor in all our entrepreneurial decisions, and no compromises are made in their implementation. Wörwag’s headquarters in Zuffenhausen is located close to a residential area. There are families living there, just a few kilometres away from labs and production facilities where paints and pigments are being manufactured. But they don’t need to worry. At Wörwag, we address these issues in a sustainable way. At the end of the day, Wörwag is itself a family business, one which will be celebrating its centenary in 2018.
The many facets of environmental protection
Wörwag makes sustainable investment in the future – both in Zuffenhausen and in all of our sites worldwide. This is the only way that long-term positive developments can be achieved, both for the company and for its ecological environment. Production methods which promote the careful use of resources and the responsible use of energy are the cornerstones of our corporate philosophy. Wörwag is happy to set standards in this respect. Since 2007, Wörwag has been subject to validation by the EcoManagement and Audit Scheme (EMAS). A community-wide system providing a standardised method of environmental management, coupled with the carrying out of an environmental company audit, are the constituent elements of this scheme developed by the EU for companies which want to improve their performance in terms of environmental protection. This environmental declaration serves to inform the public about environmental measures being undertaken, as well as about continuous improvements in performance in terms of environmental protection.
