The Zumtobel Group rigorously ensures compliance with the Regulation on Hazardous Substances.
To reduce energy consumption, specific measures are taken in the plants.
The Zumtobel Group is constantly mindful of the need to achieve the biggest possible reductions in emissions.
Manufacturing the Zumtobel Group’s products requires relatively little process water.
Consideration is given to avoiding waste during production and the possibility of recycling the finished product from the outset when a product is first developed.
