Also in 2017, the environmental management of Diehl Metal Applications (DMA) at the Berlin and Teltow location meets all requirements of the EMAS (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme) regulation. This was confirmed in the surveillance audit in December 2018.
Since 1996, DMA has voluntarily participated in the EU's EMAS. 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.
