Sustainable production with recyclable materials

The responsibility for our planet lies in the hands of all of us.

Sustainability in the sense of our environment means aligning all our actions to what it has in the long run for consequences and effects on our planet and its living beings. For us as an industrial enterprise, it means using the resources of our planet sparingly and, if possible, recycling raw materials, ie recycle them to the material cycle. How and why do we do this?

For the environment!

Sustainable production starts with the selection of the materials used. That's why we at KIGA have been recycling recyclable materials wherever possible for years, such as regranulates made from recycled plastics. These granules are obtained partly from industrial waste (post-industrial plastics) and partly from household waste, the "yellow sack" (post-consumer plastics). In addition, production waste from our own production is carefully collected by us and also 100% recycled to our production.

But our products are still sustainable in many ways. For example, a plastic pallet is more sustainable than a conventional one-way wooden pallet because it is very durable and reusable. In addition, it can be recycled after its retirement after many years again. The raw material is thus fed again to the material cycle. This saves resources and reduces CO²emissions in production.

Resource-efficient business management means looking systematically and on a long-term basis for ways of saving energy and water and reducing waste. That's why we at KIGA have implemented a strategic energy management system for which we were certified in 2014 (DIN ISO 50001, Energy Management). Since then, we have not only saved energy costs. Thanks to the higher energy efficiency, we were able to significantly improve our energy balance: we also save CO² here.
