At Koenig & Bauer, environmental aspects and compliance with high quality and safety standards have been addressed consistently for many years. Energy and resource efficiency, both during the manufacturing process and subsequent operation of our machines, is factored in during the development and design stages. The minimisation of noise, dust, odour and CO2 emissions in production and at the product user’s facility is another important goal. Ecologically compatible substrates and consumables are used in the printing, finishing and conversion processes. The suitability for recycling is a similarly relevant factor when assessing the environmental impact of our products, and that is why we continue to rely on components made from fully recyclable steel and grey cast iron.
To underpin our efforts and to help establish comprehensive standards, we have joined a number of networks that are active in this field. Overall, we view sustainability and climate protection as a part of our responsibility towards future generations. And even today, this opens up any number of specific opportunities to place new products, equipment options and services on the market, and thereby differentiate ourselves from our competitors.
