Early adoption of strategies that ensure performance improvements for quality, environmental protection and occupational health and safety continue to make Kannegiesser a leader of sustainability.

Kannegiesser strives to meet present needs without compromising the needs of future generations. For this reason, we are constantly refining our use of operating materials and consumables in the company, keeping their use to a bare minimum - while maximizing the recycling of unavoidable waste.

Kannegiesser employees play a major role in the continual improvement of operating procedures and products; having a strong job identification which raises their awareness of questions of quality, environment and safety. The unique internal Kannegiesser Training Program allows the younger generation to get experience, training in specific areas and expertise.

Relying on environmentally-friendly production processes, Kannegiesser does not consider the use of environmentally harmful products (such as paints containing heavy metals) and seeks out compatible substitutions for raw materials, especially in cooperation with suppliers, whose respective green philosophy mirrors that of our own.

Helping drive greener choices for consumers through education and engagement completes our mission of a green initiative. Customers receive specific consultation regarding quality and environmental handling, while successfully reducing energy usage and waste water impact.

Looking forward to 2012, Kannegiesser will continue to advance sustainability in the company’s day-to-day business, bringing extraordinary value to our customers through increased efficiencies, modern innovations and particular industry relevance.
