Sustainability shapes the way our whole company thinks and acts
KEMPER is particularly committed to protecting the climate and the environment and to using resources sustainably. These goals are given the highest priority right from the development stage of our innovative products and systems.
KEMPER systems make it possible to maintain drinking water hygiene in buildings without the use of chemicals, at the same time as reducing the unavoidable consumption of this resource to a minimum. And, when it comes to hot water heating, KEMPER products work energy efficiently and help to save resources here as well. In fact, their exceptional sustainability and eco-friendliness are in the process of being certified by the Singapore Green Building Council, among others.
KEMPER has also supported the Blue Responsibility initiative for the sustainable and climate-friendly use of water and metals from the very start.
For its part, KEMPER uses 100% recyclable materials within a proprietary environmental and energy management system that is regularly certified by recognised, independent organisations. Targeted measures at every level of the business ensure we are constantly working on reducing the burden on our environment. This includes the introduction of new manufacturing methods and processes. Potential impacts are checked and evaluated at the development phase. This ensures that they are reduced to a minimum at the earliest possible stage – not least by using the best technology available.
Working closely with the relevant authorities, we implement preventive safety procedures that help to minimise potential accidental emissions. We are continuously developing our employees’ environmental knowledge and awareness through apprenticeships and further training. KEMPER also expects the same or similarly high environmental standards from its contractual partners.
The energy efficiency network WVMplus officially started its activities in 2015 in the presence of Dr. Barbara Hendricks, then Federal Minister for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Construction and Reactor Safety. Its work focuses specifically on production processes in the non-ferrous metal industry, with the goal of saving 36,503,000 kWh. By the end of 2020 there are expected to be 500 networks, each generally consisting of 8 to 15 companies.
