Sustainability

The desire to use sustainable processes and work in ways that minimize the environmental footprint has long made its foray into the manufacturing industry. It is a topic that moves all of us. ELTEC is one of the enterprises that have made its own commitment to handle limited resources in a responsible manner and to keep its energy consumption as well as its emissions to an absolute minimum many years ago.

Our products meet exacting standards in terms of their quality, safety and sustainability. Among others, this is also documented by the BLUECOMPETENCE Initiative of the German Engineering Federation VDMA (Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbauer), of which ELTEC is a member.

BLUECOMPETENCE

Engineering a better world – that’s the mission statement of Blue Competence. The objective of the initiative is to move forward environmentally friendly solutions that use energy and resources efficiently through innovative technologies. As one of the partner enterprises, ELTEC is among those who are raising the bar.

A perfect example of a simple approach to the implementation of ecological or economic goals in everyday business routines is the introduction of in-house recycling processes. Production and sales require a complex, costly logistics system. To protect valuable electronic systems and components against transportation damages caused by electrostatic charges, special packaging is indispensable. A custom-tailored returnable packaging system that uses molds that were manufactured specifically for this purpose has been developed to achieve this goal. Besides product handling and storage advantages, the use of corrugated cardboard and filler materials is substantially reduced. Ultimately, this translates into a conservative use of environment resources and reduces emissions.

The savings and reductions in concrete facts and figures:

  • The packaging used reduces the CO2 footprint by 70 percent
  • Cuts the use of packaging by several thousand boxes per year
  • Cost reduction by 90 %
  • Easy to implement
  • Minimal investment costs

Moreover, we partner pro-actively with our customers and upon request, deliver our products in resale ready packing. We accommodate your specific wishes as far as the choice of packaging materials is concerned.
