EMAS-Pioneers - 20 years EMAS

24 June 2019 | 

voestalpine Tubulars has a long tradition in environmental management (since 1999: ISO 14001 certified). On June 5, our company received an award for its 20th anniversary as an EMAS pioneer at the EMAS conference.

EMAS

We are an EMAS location (EMAS stands for the EU Eco - Management and Audit Scheme) and have been awarded with the EMAS Award for Best Environmental Statement three times (2006, 2013 and 2017).

In addition to ensuring legal compliance, regular communication and exchange of information within the EMAS community is a big advantage for voestalpine Tubulars.

Energy Efficiency

With the certification according to ISO 50001 in 2012, the topic of energy became "officially" an essential part of the environmental management system.

We are aware of the high energy demand of the production of our seamless tubes and work continuously on energy efficiency topics – for example with new burner technologies for our ovens, new lighting options for our halls, etc.

For example, in the framework of “klimaaktiv” (assigned to the Federal Ministry of Sustainability and Tourism) we received many awards and the current guideline on "Energy Efficiency and Synergies for Material Efficiency and Employee Protection" from February 2019 contains an article about us.

Environmental protection

Environmental protection is very important to us, which is reflected in a number of certifications. Our continuous measures and activities can also be found in the Environmental Declarations on our webpage in the download area:
