Roth has successfully passed EMAS certification audit

30/01/2020
Roth Werke in Buchenau and Roth Plastic Technology in Wolfgruben successfully passed the monitoring audit according to the environmental audit system EMAS (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme).

The environmental expert Frank Meckel signed the Roth environmental statement in December 2019 and certified that the data and information in the environmental statement reflect a reliable, credible and truthful picture of the activities at both Roth locations. Roth has been certified according to EMAS (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme) since 2010 and developed its own environmental management system with ambitious goals in several categories.
Climate protection is part of the corporate principles
"For us as a family business, sustainability and responsible use of resources play a major role and are an integral part of our corporate philosophy," emphasised Roth Managing Director Christin Roth-Jäger.
Roth has been producing climate-neutrally at its Wolfgruben site since 2017. There, as well as at the Buchenau site, the company obtains 100 percent green electricity from hydropower. Roth also strengthened its fleet of vehicles for regional business transactions with electric cars. Business mail is sent in a climate-friendly manner. The greenhouse gases produced during dispatch are neutralised by a levy for climate protection projects. In 2018, the Federal Ministry for the Environment awarded Roth the national environmental prize. Parliamentary State Secretary Florian Pronold praised the commitment of the family business to climate protection.
