Environment and environmental impacts

Our approach

As a manufacturing company, ALPLA is reliant on resources such as energy, gas, fossil resources and water. We are aware of how important it is to the future of the planet and to future generations that we use these resources efficiently.

We understand efficient use to mean getting as much as possible out of the raw materials. We wish to use them wisely and keep them within the materials cycle. The professional collection and recycling of plastics prevent them from polluting the environment and being harmful there. We also focus our efforts on alternative materials and energy sources that replace fossil resources. We keep emissions as low as possible. We offset greenhouse gas emissions in Austria that cannot be avoided (Scopes 1 and 2) by purchasing carbon certificates from high-quality climate protection projects. Our endeavours are underscored by certification in accordance with ISO 14001 and ISO 50001.

ALPLA’s company headquarters is located directly on the Austrian shore of Lake Constance.

In the following sections, we report on the measures implemented and the achievements in the area of ecology and environmental impacts in the reporting period and once again present our ambitious targets for the next few years. In addition, possible improvements came to light again and again in the course of preparing this report, which we then implemented immediately in order to minimise our environmental impact.
