During the manufacture of our products, it is important to us to avoid pollutants or keep their occurrence as low as possible. Especially in the case of new pre-products or modified input materials (raw materials, consumables and supplies), both their procurement and their use are also evaluated in terms of environmental protection aspects.
In addition, we also focus on purchasing products from local suppliers in order to contribute to the minimization of transport routes.
We understand this task as part of our quality management certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001ff, especially the demand for continuous improvement of processes and products. An example of successfully excluding harmful substances is the abandonment of using mercury, cadmium, lead, etc.
The environmentally relevant hazardous and polluting substances that are technically unavoidable at M&C and only occur in very small quantities are exclusively the result of upstream production processes. Only small sections of our own production program are affected. We record these materials in a pollutant register.
In order to comply with the directive 2002/96/EC from 2003 (amended 2008) and the German ElektroG (Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act), we report our production quantities as a member of the EAR (National Register for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) foundation. The task of this foundation is the organization of a reasonable recycling management. This is achieved by monitoring the respective delivery quantities of the member companies. In this way, we make an active contribution to the recycling of waste electrical and electronic equipment or corresponding components.
