Principles of environmental and energy policy

For us, this is not a "can do" but a clear "must do"

Consistent environmental policy

CHT's environmental guidelines are based on the principles of ISO 14001. They aim, beyond compliance with the relevant environmental regulations, to continuously improve environmental protection.
The CHT environmental policy guidelines

  • We are responsible to the community for our products and activities. According to our philosophy, this means to strive for a constant reduction of the environmental impact caused by our plants and products, beyond the legal requirements.
  • We provide active and open information to employees and external parties and make our environmental guidelines publicly available.
  • Compliance with legal requirements in the manufacture, storage and transport of our products is a matter of course for us.
  • In the development, production and distribution of our products, we pay attention to the conservation of resources and the minimization of emissions.
  • We have introduced our environmental policy at all levels of the company and ensure its application, maintenance and continuous improvement through training of all employees, according to their function.

Responsible energy policy

  • The Management of CHT Germany GmbH commits itself to introduce and maintain an energy management system (EnMS) that complies with the ISO 50001 standard with all its requirements. 
  • It ensures that the type and scope of energy use and consumption are appropriate to the needs and further development of the company.
  • CHT Germany GmbH is obliged to continuously improve the energy-related performance and the EnMS.
  • CHT Germany GmbH complies with all legal and other requirements related to energy efficiency, energy use and energy consumption.
  • We support the purchase of energy efficient products and services that contribute to the improvement of energy-related performance, as well as design-related activities that take into account the improvement of energy-related performance.
  • To ensure the achievement of goals and energy targets, Management provides all necessary information and resources.

The Energy Policy is part of our corporate policy that focuses on sustainability. Sustainability is an integral part of the CHT Strategy 2025, which is based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDG).
We consistently take responsibility for our actions, which go hand in hand with our service provision. We therefore also pay strict attention to the conservation of resources and the minimization of emissions and waste in our energy policy.

Commitment with impact

We actively support the VCI's "Chemistry4Climate" initiative with the goal of becoming greenhouse gas neutral by 2050. We are also committed by participating in the Chemie³ sustainability initiative, a joint project of the VCI, BAVC and IG BCE.
The appropriateness of the policy is reviewed by the Management in the annual review and by employees as part of projects on corporate values and guidelines, and updated as necessary.
