Truma goes ‘green’ in the new year: At the end of 2015 Truma was awarded certificates for its professional environment and energy management systems pursuant to DIN EN ISO 14001 and DIN EN ISO 50001. The objective of the environment and energy management systems is to cut consumption of power, gas and fuel in the company and also to reduce CO2 emissions, waste, hazardous substances and waste water.
“By implementing a continuous improvement process, we want to make a contribution to protecting the environment and the climate, whilst at the same time improving efficiency,” explains Christian von Sassen, head of company organisation at Truma. “This not only involves manufacturing durable, reliable and energy-efficient products, but also concentrates on sustainability in all company activities, for instance the development and production of our equipment.”
Solar energy and rainwater cisterns
The best example: Truma generates ‘green’ power with solar energy, thereby covering approximately 25% of its total electricity needs. Also, Truma treats its waste water and operates two rainwater cisterns, which supply 55,000 litres of rainwater annually for the company’s sanitary facilities.
And this is just the beginning. “Our goal is to further reduce our CO2 emissions by 20% over the next five years”, says von Sassen. “As an innovative manufacturer of accessories we want to set standards in terms of environment protection and energy efficiency. This is an important goal for Truma and an integral part of our corporate culture”, emphasises managing director Frank Oster.
