Our quality and environmental management
In addition to the consistently high quality of our internationally renowned LIGASANO® products, we have always wanted to produce as environmentally friendly as possible, which has been documented by external examinations since 1998. All processes are constantly questioned and improved.
In fact, we were the first company in our county that passed the EMAS environmental audit. At the time, a journalist asked me why we are dealing with environmental management at all. This question surprised me so much that I came to a halt. It has always been natural for me. That's exactly what my answer was.

EMAS: the premium label of the EU
EMAS is the world's most sophisticated system for sustainable environmental management and stands for Eco-Management and Audit Scheme. Only those organizations that meet the stringent requirements of the European EMAS Regulation will be awarded the EMAS logo.
All EMAS participants voluntarily undertake to systematically improve their environmental impact. Here they can be permanently monitored.
The individual elements of an EMAS environmental management system:
► A communicated environmental policy
► The determination and evaluation of the operational environmental aspects, i.a. with key figures
► Compliance with standards, regulations and applicable legal provisions
► Setting annual targets and drawing up an action plan
► The annual review and evaluation of the system in the internal audit and management review
► Publication of the Environmental Statement
► Regular independent validation by an approved environmental verifier
► Entry in the EMAS participant register by the respective IHK or chamber of trade
EMAS is not an off-the-peg scheme. It is important to have initiative, new ideas and the willingness to question your own actions - and have them questioned.
To take responsibility!
This not only enables efficient environmental protection, which goes far beyond the statutory requirements.
EMAS also means accepting more responsibility for society.
