The Energy Forum Carinthia certifies Europlast as a "sustainable company"

For Europlast, sustainability is a core value. 

Environmental sustainability is also very important in the company and acts as resource-efficiently as possible. 

The company, which has been certified several times in iso, is able to make the production CO2 neutral. 

The company buildings were equipped with appropriate thermal insulation. 

Other energy measures, such as the switch to LED lighting, various insulation measures or frequency inverters, have significantly reduced their own energy consumption. 

Green electricity will soon be available from our own photovoltaic system. The room heat is obtained from waste heat, which is fed by a microgrid.  

In order to largely dispense with fossil fuels, e-mobility was used at an early stage. 

In general, the company is very keen to minimise the negative impact of its actions on the environment. 

The implementation of the paper-free office is also a clear goal and its own waste management concept ensures the correct handling of waste.
