Our quality is also reflected in the environment
Our development and production processes are always characterised by a holistic approach. This means that our thoughts and actions are not only focused on the perfect product but also on all the processes that go along with it.
For this reason, environmental protection is also an essential part of our corporate philosophy. Since we see the holistic approach as a healthy balance of effective environmental protection, satisfied customers and employees, high product quality and optimum profitability.
For us, environmental protection means:
- making optimum use of energy, water and raw materials
- preventing environmental pollution caused by emissions, waste water, soil contamination and waste
- complying with environmental laws and regulations
- continuously improving technical and organisational measures for environmental protection and plant safety
- training our employees to promote their sense of responsibility
- advising customers on environmentally relevant issues
- promoting good relations with the public through the exchange of information
In order to achieve these goals, we rely on proactive environmental management in addition to compliance with statutory regulations and our holistic approach.
LEED and DGNB
Collect DGNB + LEED points with KEMPEROL products
Planners and architects, who focus on the issue of sustainable construction, will already be familiar with the abbreviations LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and DGNB (German Sustainable Building Council). These involve systems for classifying green construction and independent certification programmes for assessing the sustainability of buildings. Assessments of products used to build it are incorporated into the overall assessment of any building.
EPD environmental product declaration
EPDs are particularly in demand in the construction industry as they are increasingly required in public tenders and form an important basis for the sustainability certification of buildings. They provide comprehensive information about the environmental impact of building products and support the selection of sustainable options.

Our corporate responsibility
As a company, we assume responsibility. Both for the environment and for our employees, thereby ensuring healthy growth and safe working conditions. For this reason, we are responsible for the continuous improvement of safety, health and environmental protection. We achieve this with measurable success. This is not least due to the fact that for years we have been guided by the international “Responsible Care” guidelines of the chemical industry.
