Sustainability at OPTIPLAN
A company can only develop sustainable if it is committed to preserving the environment and improving the quality of life in the long term.
Our sustainability strategy
As a future-oriented company, the future of next generations is particularly important to us. We aim to become active where we can provide a substantial added value for the environment and society through our social, economic and ecological actions.
Innovation as a sign of sustainable
For us, innovation also means the development of sustainable products. We work closely together with our customers, suppliers and business partners to introduce solutions onto the market, withstanding the requirements of tomorrow. The latest example is our POLYDET® r-PET product line, which stands for the new generation of sustainable FRP products. In cooperation with our customers and business partners, we were thus able to develop a GRP product employing a sustainable resin using up to 30 % PET recyclate made of post-consumer waste. As a result, we achieve similar properties compared to conventional GRP sheet products. In this way, dozens of PET bottles can be recycled per truck body produced and reintroduced into the economic cycle. In addition, we are researching i.e. alternative natural fibre reinforcements for our plastic sheet products.
Counteracting climate change
We are committed to systematically and continuously optimising our energy-related services. With the implementation of our energy management system, increasing energy efficiency became an integral part of all departments and developments. For example, 85% of the energy required for the administration building is already sourced from our afterburning system. The implementation of photovoltaic further reduces the use of external energy sources. These, we obtain exclusively from 100% green electricity. By converting our company vehicles to e-mobility, we are furthermore reducing our CO2 emissions for a better environment!
For the well-being of our employees
As a medium-sized company, we not only take responsibility for the environment, but also in particular for our approximately 150 employees. Occupational safety and plant safety are therefore our top priority. Through our health management, such as sports and fitness offers, we also promote the maintaining of the health of our employees.
