Sustainability in the TKM Group.
Responsibility through expertise and planning.
Sustainability has top priority at the TKM Group. Responsibility for people and their environment already begins with the working conditions, in the supply chain and in production. This includes the systematic auditing of suppliers, the efficient and careful use of resources and the maximum reduction of emissions and waste in product life cycles.
Employees are trained in environmental protection and the production processes geared to the certified environmental and energy management systems ISO 14001 and ISO 50001.
Sustainability continues at the customer’s end. Energy-efficient products and systems help reduce resource consumption. The customer consequently benefits not only from good product quality, but also from an improved energy balance – and thus lower energy costs – and from the long service life of the products.
TKM is a partner of the VDMA sustainability initiative "Blue Competence," whose slogan is "Engineering a better world".
As an internationally producing company, we regard commitment to the careful handling of natural resources and to the protection of environment as an essential part of our social responsibility. That's why we joined the Blue Competence initiative.
“Blue Competence” stands for leadership in the innovation and technology of machine and plant construction along the lines of sustainable solutions. In accordance with verifiable criteria, the “Blue Competence” badge identifies all members, participants and partners of the initiative as providers of market-driven solutions that improve the quality of life, protect the environment and consume energy and resources efficiently.
