The family-owned company Röchling stands for values-based and sustainable business practices. We apply the very same principles in our approach to the environment and society that we apply to our customers, partners and employees: mutual respect, great regard and trust.
We at Röchling have broken down the issue of sustainability into three areas of action: We develop innovative products that help our customers reach their environmental goals (Plastic and Sustainability). We make an active contribution to climate protection by systematically optimizing our own processes (Ecological Responsibility). And we assume responsibility for the safety of our employees (Social Responsibility).
Plastic and Sustainability
As experts in plastics, we realize that we have a special responsibility to assume. The high-performance plastics that we process help conserve resources thanks to their long lives and multifaceted uses.
Our company culture fosters such developments: We consistently and systematically invest in environmentally conscious products, services and sustainable processes. In doing so, we help our customers achieve their sustainability goals:
Renewable resources for transformers
The red beech veneers that we use to produce our high-performance insulating material Lignostone® for oil-filled transformers come exclusively from certified European forestry. Lignostone® insulation parts also have very long service lives: Transformers made with Lignostone® parts can easily operate for more than 30 years.
Sliding material saves energy
With LubX® CV, a material with exceptional sliding properties, conveyor systems operate faster and more productively with increased pressure loads in such sectors as the beverage industry. Energy consumption declines, and the service life of the systems rises.
Intelligent air-flap systems for the automotive industry
The greatest-possible aerodynamics with maximum cooling performance – this is a key goal of the global automotive industry. Active Grille Shutters reduce wind resistance in a vehicle so much that up to three grams of CO2 can be saved per kilometer.
Converting nitrogen oxides in emission
Demand for reliable selective catalytic reduction systems (SCR) is growing. In addition to commercial vehicles, these systems are increasingly being used in passenger cars. With the help of a urea solution, the process converts the nitrogen oxides in emissions into nitrogen and water without producing any undesired byproducts.
Precise and safe administration of medication
It is difficulty to give a child an exact dose of oral medicine. The innovative dosage form of a leading pharmaceutical company overcomes this challenge. Röchling Medical and HS Design of Gladstone/USA developed the Sympfiny® drug-delivery system.
We, too, need natural resources to conduct our business activities and manufacturing processes. However, we can keep our consumption to the lowest levels possible. We replace hazardous substances wherever possible. We reduce and completely eliminate waste and emissions. We analyze and optimize our cycles of materials, and we monitor our differentiated recycling and waste management systems. We continuously and systematically tap the optimization potential that we uncover by introducing appropriate measures.
The commitment made by our employees and managers is crucial. Through training courses, transparency and, not least, active role modeling, we raise group-wide awareness levels about the environment and energy. In addition, a large number of locations already have ISO 14001 and ISO 50001 certification.
Motivated and qualified employees are an essential part of the Röchling Group’s future. For this reason, we at Röchling offer a positive work environment that includes a large number of advanced training opportunities, active diversity, equal opportunity and a range of work schedule models.
We at Röchling have given occupational health, safety and prevention a high priority in our company guidelines. We create secure jobs where our employees can work in an accident-free environment. We alert them to these issues in group-wide and local campaigns and programs.
We also assume social responsibility: Our Group’s global sites provide direct, local support to charitable projects and campaigns. As a result, these activities can meet the needs of a particular region.
