Sustainability in everyday business operations
Our employees support UnionStahl’s path to carbon neutrality with their dedication and commitment. By actively participating and rethinking previous habits, we have successfully transformed daily operations at UnionStahl to be more environmentally friendly. Examples include waste separation and reduced paper consumption. The Chamber of Industry and Commerce’s ‘Energy Scouts’ project has contributed to this transformation.
Lighting throughout the company is gradually being converted to LED.
UnionStahl is switching to electromobility. Today, the majority of our sales representatives are already using electric or hybrid vehicles.
The goods deliveries that reach us by rail are transported by an electric locomotive on the company premises in Duisburg. It replaced our diesel locomotive.
The finished parts are transported by electric forklifts between the production areas.
UnionStahl offers its employees the opportunity to lease bicycles and e-bikes. With this programme, we’re not only protecting the environment, but also keeping our employees healthy and fit.
Overall, the mobility division makes a significant contribution to the company’s goal of carbon neutrality.
Sustainable mobility requires a corresponding infrastructure, which is why UnionStahl invested in upgrading 14 charging stations at the Duisburg site.
Water dispensers and glass water bottles
UnionStahl provides employees with several water dispensers on the company premises, as well as glass water bottles. UnionStahl is thus actively involved in plastic and waste prevention.
