Occupational safety and environmentally compatible management are key components of ALTANA’s corporate strategy and are becoming increasingly important. 

The ALTANA Group measures progress in the area of environmental protection using specific key figures, such as the consumption of natural gas and electricity as energy sources and the resulting greenhouse gas emissions, and in the area of safety with the help of accident figures. In terms of environmental protection, our goal is to continuously reduce energy consumption at all of our sites and in all areas and to promote the use of energy from renewable sources in order to achieve climate neutrality for the ALTANA Group by 2025. ALTANA plans to compensate for the greenhouse gas emissions that cannot be avoided by 2025 by financing equivalent climate protection projects. 

In the field of safety, the primary objective is to reduce the number of accidents. The issue of safety is a top priority at ALTANA. ALTANA ensures continuous improvement in the safety of ist employees by means of various technical and organizational measures tailored to the production conditions at the sites and to the laws and regulations that apply there. To achieve a uniform safety culture, ALTANA also relies on targeted employee training programs.
