Since 1996, Diehl Metal Applications (DMA) has voluntarily participated in the EU's EMAS (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme). The continuous improvement and further development of the operational environmental protection and the operational safety is the highest priority. In order to fulfill this, we set up environmental programs for the DMA, which contain both – our environmental goals as well as the associated necessary measures.
Among other things, the saving of energy was one of the goals in 2017 – just as in previous years before. We were able to achieve this by rebuilding and optimizing an extraction line for a building exhaust system – just to name one example. This measure alone can save approximately 13,140 kWh of electricity per year.
Further environmental activities and relevant environmental data of the DMA can be found in our current Environmental Statement.
In addition to the environmental management system according to the EMAS regulation, the successful certification according to DIN ISO 14001 exists since 2004. According to the new standard DIN ISO 14001: 2015 since 2016. This certification confirms that the requirements of Regulation (EC) No 1221/2009 and all environmental requirements have been met.
