Environmental responsibility

Environmental responsibility

Energy and raw materials are valuable resources that we need for our production.
To become more sustainable, we have taken the following measures:

 

Sustainable packaging

Our seat cushion cartons / HEEL PROTECT® cartons are made of grass paper. This is a fast-growing, sustainable raw
material. The grass used for production comes from previously unused green areas, so-called compensatory areas.
They are also only mown once at the beginning and once at the end of the year, so that the main vegetation periods
of the grasses are not affected.

Water saving:

During the production of grass
paper, significantly less water is
required than for virgin wood pulp.

CO2 saving:

Grass paper produces significantly
lower CO2 emissions than virgin
wood pulp.

Resource-saving:

Minimising the consumption
of important resources
such as wood.

Biodegradable:

Grass paper consists of natural
fibres, which are biodegradable. The
flexo inks used are water-soluble,
harmless and can be recycled with
the cardboard.


  Saving of plastic

The seat cushions and HEEL PROTECT® are also provided with a fresh seal
instead of an additional film. In this way we save 6 tons of foil per year.

 

Photovoltaic

Since 2012, we generate 250.000 kWh of electricity from solar energy using 4
photovoltaic systems. The produced amount covers about 65% of our own demand.
This means that approx. 130t less CO2 will be emitted into the environment.

 

Climate-friendly mattresses

Our GREENLINE mattresses are made of ECOLAST® foam. Compared to conventional
decubitus therapy mattresses (standard foam mattresses or alternating pressure mattresses)
they have approx. 22%* less CO2 emission.

We want to preserve our natural resources with all these measures
in order to live up to our environmental responsibility.

THE WORLD IS A FINE PLACE
AND WORTH FIGHTING FOR.
