Sustainability at SurTec

Responsible and sustainable action is an integral part of our corporate identity

Responsible conduct is an integral part of our corporate identity and a mandatory requirement for all our companies and partners worldwide. Specialist functions within our organisation are dedicated to environmental and health protection, occupational health and safety, chemicals legislation as well as social responsible and economical conduct and sustainability. Our employees are encouraged to actively integrate these values into their everyday work.

Our long-term corporate success is based on responsible business practices. Economic success, social responsibility, environmental care and sustainable use of our products and services are intrinsically tied to each other. We consider the effects of our actions on people, the environment and on future generations.

Taking this into account the building of SurTec Deutschland GmbH in Zwingenberg (offices, laboratories, production facilities and warehouse) was built to passive house standard in 2000. The energy balance was massively improved and operating costs reduced thanks to high-end structural heat insulation, thermal glazing, ventilation with heat recovery, a facade with no leaks or heat bridges, and replacement of air conditioning systems with passive cooling.

As part of the Freudenberg family business and on our own responsibility, we want to contribute to ensuring that employees, customers, partners and the public continue to find an intact social, ecological and economic structure at SurTec.

Environmentally Friendly Products

When our company was founded in 1993, we were already committed to the development of environmentally friendly products and this has not changed to this day. On the contrary - in all our decisions we pay special attention to sustainability, so that we always choose business activities with the smallest possible impact on the environment. The aim of our strategy is to provide innovative solutions that enable our customers to achieve their goals while conserving resources.
