The EPCOS Group operates an environmental management system that conforms to the requirements of ISO 14001. Currently, most of our locations in Europe, the Americas, as well as in Asia are certified to this standard.
Our Environmental Protection Principles:
Above and beyond statutory and administrative requirements, we are continuously working to minimize the burden on the environment and to reduce consumption of energy and natural resources.
We are taking all precautions necessary to protect our environment against damage.
Potential impact on the environment is assessed and incorporated in product and process planning at the earliest possible stage.
Our environmental management system ensures that our environmental protection principles are effectively put into practice. The technical and organizational procedures required are regularly monitored and updated.
Each employee is required to act in an environmentally conscious manner. It is the constant duty of management to increase and encourage awareness of responsibility at all levels.
We work with our business partners to promote conformity with similar objectives. We supply our customers with information on ways to minimize any potentially adverse environmental impacts of our products. We work in a spirit of cooperation with the relevant authorities.
We inform the public of the impact on the environment caused by the company and our activities related to the environment.
