Sustainability

To produce sustainably is an expression of the high quality standard of KVS GmbH. This is why we put emphasis on the considerate and efficient use of valuable resources like energy, environment and raw materials.

DIN EN ISO 50001:2011

One measure to save energy and to produce environment-friendly was taken with the DIN EN ISO 50001:2011 certification. For the acknowledgement as an energy-saving company, the production facilities of KVS GmbH were modified according to the latest findings and requirements. Furthermore, the KVS GmbH has set itself the goal to reduce the incurring CO2 emissions by 20% until 2025.

WORKS 1 – OUR RECYCLING CENTRE

KVS GmbH has two works located in the industrial area of Schüttorf. While our high-quality plastic sheets and plastic films are produced at Works 2, Works 1 is all about sustainability. Since 2016, this site is run as our company-own recycling centre, where we process own and foreign material in a way that it can be brought back into the production process. As a consequence, we lower the use of new raw materials and thus, make an important contribution to protect the environment.
