"Energy Forum Carinthia Re-certifies Europlast as a "sustainable company"

For Europlast, sustainability is the focus in every respect. Great importance is also attached to ecological sustainability in operations, and the company acts in a way that conserves resources as much as possible. The company, which has been ISO certified several times, is able to make its production CO² neutral. For example, the company buildings have been equipped with appropriate thermal insulation. Other energy-related measures, such as the switch to LED lighting, various insulation measures or frequency converters have significantly reduced the company's own energy consumption. Green electricity is purchased and the company supplies some of its own electricity from its own photovoltaic system. Space heating is obtained from waste heat that feeds a microgrid. In order to avoid the use of fossil fuels as far as possible, the company opted for e-mobility at an early stage. The company is generally very keen to minimize the negative impact of its activities on the environment. The implementation of a paper-free office is also a clear goal, and the company's own waste management concept ensures that waste is handled correctly. In the areas of economic and social sustainability, too, top scores were achieved in the audit that was carried out. For example, Europlast also received an award as a family-friendly employer. The company can be classified as a particularly employee-friendly and social enterprise. The EFK certificate is intended as an orientation aid for the "conscious shopper". Companies that receive the award are accompanied by Energieforum Kärnten in the long term to ensure sustainable development.

The certification certificate was handed over by Leitbetriebe Austria Managing Director Monica Rintersbacher to Franziska Kogler, Sales Manager for Austria and South Tyrol. After a comprehensive qualification process, Leitbetriebe are awarded to those exemplary companies that are committed to sustainable corporate success, innovation and social responsibility. "By specializing in the production of plastic containers, Europlast has established itself as a leading European supplier in an attractive market niche," explained Monica Rintersbacher on the occasion of the recertification. "It is particularly noteworthy that Europlast is an important regional employer in a rural region in Carinthia that is otherwise heavily dependent on tourism. The high sense of ecological responsibility, including CO2-free production, is also exemplary." "For us, sustainability is a general corporate guideline with many dimensions," says Europlast Managing Director Arthur Primus. "It determines our attitude in relationships with customers, suppliers, employees, owners and, of course, our efforts to conserve resources. At Europlast, sustainability is lived without compromise." Leading companies are the model companies of the domestic economy. They face up to the urgent challenges of economic life, such as digitalization or the shortage of skilled workers. With their consistent focus on social responsibility, sustainability and fair dealings with all stakeholders, they are drivers for the domestic economy. "I am pleased that our Leitbetriebe philosophy is becoming more and more prevalent among Austrian companies," says Monica Rintersbacher. Leitbetriebe Austria offers the excellence companies of the domestic economy a unique platform to intensify the exchange of know-how across industry and federal state borders. "Together we set new milestones to sustainably strengthen the development of Austria as a business location." >
