Sustainable commitment

EMAS - European Environmental Management System

Meyer Seals® also aims to produce in the most resource and environmentally friendly way possible.

Since 2020, we have therefore been certified in accordance with the Eco-Management and Audit Scheme, EMAS for short, due to our sustainability efforts. This is a premium environmental management system developed by the European Commission, which is intended to ensure that resources are saved and production procedures, processes and corporate decisions are implemented in a consistently environmentally compatible and transparent manner.

In addition, each and every employee is expected to play his or her part in making Meyer Seals® more sustainable. For this reason, we hold regular training sessions on the topics of sustainability and energy management so that our goals are communicated transparently and questions are answered directly.

Integrated recycling processes and effective energy management

For many years now, the topic of residual material utilisation has been an important part of the Meyer Seals® world.
Every year, several thousand tonnes of unavoidable punched plastic grids are automatically fed into our in-house recycling system and converted back into various types of granulate. This material can then be 100% recycled into the production process of our sealing inserts.
Such integrated processes for the recycling of raw materials, as well as our special production methods in general with minimised residual waste, are important components of Meyer Seals'® reputation as a technology leader in our industry.

We obtain all of our electricity from renewable energy sources and continuously check whether there is potential for savings and whether processes can be further optimised. This is also the basis for our ISO 50001 certification (energy management).
Our deliberate atypical grid use contributes to the stability of the electricity grids in Germany.
We have also set up charging points for electric and hybrid vehicles on our premises for our employees. Our leasing offer of e-bikes to all employees is also a very big success.

Sustainable Meyer Seals® products

The focus of our new developments is now on the topic of sustainability.
Our product solutions are often essential elements of our customers' sustainability strategies.
In doing so, we not only offer product innovations based on alternative input materials from agricultural and forestry resources, but are the specialist for holistic solutions. In close cooperation with our customers, we therefore develop individual and comprehensive solutions in which our sealing insert allows a material reduction in the filler's other packaging (cap, container) or increases its recyclability.
