Responsible, sustainable action
Responsible and sustainable practices are a top priority at ALCAR. ALCAR pursues a responsible environmental and energy-related policy. Especially as a manufacturing industrial company, ALCAR is committed to a responsible handling of resources and the minimization of environmental impact in their products and product packaging, the logistical processes and the use of energy in production and trade.
All products distributed by AEZ and their packaging contain no substances that require registration and could be released during the use under normal or predictable conditions. For this reason, AEZ products require neither a notification with ECHA nor a registration.
AEZ ENERGY MANAGEMENT
certified according to ISO50001
Energy saving and reclamation have long been an urgent and central topic, especially in the high-consumption production processes of the ALCAR Group. The analyses and energy optimization projects carried out in this context are directed towards the continuous improvement in the use of energy, focusing on the energy cycles:
- e.g. reclamation/use of waste heat at AEZ LEICHTMETALLRÄDER Produktion
- Waste heat from thermal post-combustion, waste heat from ovens, outward transfer of heat for heating spaces, and much else.
In 2015, the ALCAR Group’s proprietary companies at the Austrian headquarters (ALCAR HOLDING, ALCAR WHEELS, ALCAR HERINGRAD) also implemented an energy management system (EnMS) with the aim to periodically assess the use of energy at the headquarters in detail and to continuously improve energy efficiency and energy-related performance, respectively. By obtaining a certification according to ISO 50001, ALCAR has met the requirements for large enterprises stipulated in the Austrian energy efficiency law EEffG 2014.
