We base our actions on social and ecological responsibility combined with economic success. We appraise the topic of "ecology" comprehensively and holistically. For werner works, sustainable thinking and actions have therefore become an integral part of our company philosophy and are applied in practice throughout the entire company. The DIN EN ISO 14001 environment certificate shows that we work according to a globally recognised environmental standard.
From the earliest planning phase of product development onwards, we focus on using environmentally friendly, durable and recyclable materials and components. Before new materials or production processes are introduced, they are checked and evaluated with regard to their disposal and impacts. The individual components of our products are reversible and can ultimately be recycled. Our products have a measurably high quality, a timeless design and a long service life. The durability of our products is the best guarantee for the economical use of resources.
The components of the products made by werner works come from certified and qualified companies. Our production processes are designed to minimise waste right from the start. The residual wood waste accumulated during production is thermally recycled. The energy generated is mainly used to heat our production facilities and the administration building. This saves the need for fossil fuels and considerably helps to reduce our carbon footprint.
werner works is aiming to produce carbon neutrally as early as possible. One element of this quest is the new photovoltaic system to provide the company with its own electricity supply.
Our environmental considerations extend to the shipping of the products and beyond. Our products are mainly protected by felt covers during transport, or delivered with recyclable packaging material. werner works has been awarded the "Resources SAVED certificate 2021". Electronic route planning that controls the production process ensures optimal loading and resource-conserving delivery of the products.
werner works will face the challenges that arise in future, especially in the areas of energy management, life cycle assessment and social responsibility, with increased commitment.
