Environmental protection, climate neutrality
Conscious use of natural resources is important to us and firmly anchored in our corporate policy. Within the framework of our environmental management system, relevant and common key figures are therefore recorded, processed and evaluated. The preparation of an annual CO2 balance serves to make our processes CO2 neutral in the medium term. We know the environmental impact of our decisions and processes and pursue the goal of CO2 neutrality by 2025. Measures to be examined are: Energy saving engines, compliance with ENEF standard for buildings, alternative heating concepts, energy efficient furnace technologies, purchase of CO2 certificates.
Since July 2020, we have been using 100% renewable energy at our sites in Warmensteinach. We pursue a waste concept with the goal of waste avoidance or recycling. With our free-standing photovoltaic system we generate approx. 600,000 kWh annually. Of this we consume about 65% ourselves, the rest is fed into the grid.
The company’s car policy stipulates that only company cars with electric motors or hybrid drives may be purchased in the future.
Five charging stations are in operation at the Warmensteinach site and may be used by employees free of charge. Charging is carried out using self-generated electricity from the company’s own solar panels and renewable electricity from the grid.
SiLi supports and subsidizes resource-conserving travel to and from work through a reward system. Carpooling, using public transportation, and coming and going by bicycle or on foot are encouraged. A leasing offer of “job” bikes is available to employees.
