Sustainability

Responsibility for our employees & the Fulda region

Health & Safety

The health and safety of our employees is always our first priority. We take seriously our commitment to modern office workstations, carefully-secured production equipment, and avoidance of materials and chemicals that can be dangerous to people or harmful to the environment. In addition to our trained medical emergency staff we offer all employees free classes in first aid.

Regional events and in-house teams also motivate us to participate in sports activities such as football, bicycling and jogging. In 2019, the Chamber of Industry and Commerce awarded us the title "healthy working in Fulda".

Sustainable Growth

The careful management of energy consumption and the environment are integral parts of our company policy. We continuously optimize our production processes with a view toward increasing efficiency and reducing energy usage. Of course we pay strict attention to protecting ground water, avoiding emissions and noise. We have always put a high value on sustainable and recyclable construction practices, ecologically irreproachable building materials, high energy efficiency and good noise insulation while planning and building all of our buildings.

Much of the packaging we use is used multiple times. In cases where re-usable packaging is not possible we make sure that the materials are conducive to recycling and harmless to the environment. The heat generated in our brazing furnace is used in our heating system. 

In an effort to adopt renewable energy sources, we are currently planning to install solar panels on buildings Nord I and Nord II to generate some of our own electricity. Our energy and environment management programs are certified in accordance with ISO 50001 and ISO 14001.

Environmental protection

Environmental protection is an integral part of our business policy. Sustainability is one of our priorities when designing all of our products and processes. Environmentally hazardous materials are avoided as far as possible. In the manufacture of vehicle parts, we make sure that neither our production methods nor our products present any potential environmental risk for the production site, the staff or the user.

In addition to addressing the direct environmental risks such as ground water, exhaust gases, and noise, Wagner’s environmental policy includes energy-efficient production. Energy is an important cost factor and performance indicator for our company. The implementation, monitoring, and improvement of all possible energy-saving measures is an important part of our environmental and energy policy and contributes to a sustainable development of the company.

The environmental and energy policy is mandatory for company management and employees. We expect the same from our suppliers.


The objective of environmental management is the consistent observance of existing norms and legal requirements as well as a systematic and documented improvement of ecological performance. Handling dangerous materials is to be kept to a minimum and to be documented seamlessly.

REACH

REACH (EC 1907/2006) is an EU regulation which aims to register, evaluate, permit and limit chemical substances. It has been in effect since 2007 and is supposed to guarantee a high level of protection for human health and the environment.

At the same time, it is intended to allow the free flow of chemicals throughout the European market and to promote competitiveness and innovation.



REACH is based on the principle that manufacturers, importers and users take responsibility for their chemicals: They are required to handle the chemicals they produce and use safely.

The abbreviation “REACH” is derived from the English-language title of the regulation: Regulation concerning the Registration Evaluation Authorization and restriction of Chemicals. It is widely considered to be one of the strictest chemicals laws in the world. (German Federal Office of Environmental Protection)
