Environment & stewardship
The only way to achieve success in our industry over the long term is to take responsibility for how we treat mankind and nature and to take a sustainable approach to business. Paper production is an energy-intensive process, which is why it is part of our day-to-day business here at Schönfelder to make sure we use our resources as efficiently as possible.
The main focus of our efforts is on water and energy. Since 1997, we have halved our specific water consumption per kilogram. And we produce about one-third of the electricity we need for production right here on site; the factory can generate up to two megawatts of electricity.
All Schönfelder Papierfabrik products have the Blue Angel certification. Our papers are FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) and PEFC certified and the company itself is ISO 50001-certified for energy management.
