WE ACTIVELY SUPPORT THE CAREFUL HANDLING OF NATURAL RESOURCES AND CLIMATE PROTECTION.
WE ARE CONTINUALLY INCREASING THE NUMBER OF CARBON FOOTPRINTS AND CERTIFIED ENVIRONMENTAL AND ENERGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS.
We actively support the careful handling of natural resources and climate protection. We have successfully participated in the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) since 2008. It aims to make companies’ climate strategies more comparable and to sustainably reduce their emissions. In 2017, TAKKT achieved a CDP Climate Score of “C”, putting it among the top of the participating SDAX companies.
We have been recording the carbon footprint of the entire responsible value chain for KAISER+KRAFT in Germany since 2011 and in six other European companies since 2013. In 2015, certified carbon footprints in accordance with ISO 14064-1 were created for Gerdmans in Sweden and for the two US companies Hubert and Central for the first time. In 2017, we recertified all of our carbon footprints and created carbon footprints for the first time for our companies KAISER+KRAFT in Italy and Spain as well as National Business Furniture in the US. This has enabled us to identify important starting points to introduce targeted improvement measures.
In addition to the existing quality management systems that are in accordance with ISO 9001, we intend to gradually introduce certified environmental management systems in accordance with ISO 14001 for at least 10 – 13 major companies by the end of 2020. A fundamental part of certification is the introduction of a continuous improvement process in environmental management. In addition to our Scandinavian company Gerdmans and Central in the US, four major KAISER+KRAFT companies are already certified according to ISO 14001.
