Decades of commitment to environmental protection
Taking care of the environment and its resources is very important to us. Our measures to make our business as gentle on the environment as possible have exceeded legal requirements for decades. For us, sustainability means taking responsibility. Our Environmental and Energy Policy clearly sets out our approach.
‘We believe that responsible ecological behaviour has long-term economic benefits. That's why we implement environmental protection measures in as many business fields as possible.’

Environmental protection measures
Resource and energy management measures include heat recovery systems, building insulation, intelligent heating control systems, ground water cooling and energy efficient lighting systems with LED technology. These measures have been pursued for decades.
Shipments by rail
A substantial number of deliveries are made by rail from our own railway sidings in Dornbirn.
In addition to reusable cardboard packaging, we have been using another environmentally-friendly packaging system for over ten years: ECO-Pack was specially developed by Blum.
Our Environmental Management System has been in place since 1997 and has helped us to systematically improve our environmental performance. Measures are continuously recorded in an environmental programme and implemented with consistency. Regular audits monitor compliance and efficacy.
Blum is certified to the ISO 50001 Energy Management Standard. This international standard outlines best energy management practices worldwide and helps us reduce energy costs and greenhouse gases.
