In July 2021, Salus Group published its current Sustainability Report. In 1996, Salus was first validated in accordance with the challenging EMAS Regulation (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme) and has continued to be recognised by the scheme since then.
What does EMAS mean?
The validation according to EMAS pledges companies to improve their environmental performance continuously and systematically. For 25 years, the environmental management at Salus has been examined under the terms of EU Regulation (EC) No. 1221/2009 and has achieved some important milestones by now:
• climate-neutral production at both company sites
• reduction of emissions from electricity by 100%
• 70% to 90% of power consumption covered by own generation of electricity
• increase in the share of organic raw materials at Salus by 30% (compared to 2000)
On the 79 pages of the report Salus presents further data and projects. The new production building in Bruckmühl is just one example: find out about its highly efficient cooling system, its green roof which helps to preserve biodiversity, and carpets made from recycled fishing nets. Even such large-scale projects are planned and implemented with special focus on sustainability, with each detail carefully considered.
The next logical step
“In 2020, we were EMASplus certified, which makes us the first producer of natural remedies and health products to take this important step. For a long time now, we have placed special importance not only on environmental matters, but also on social responsibility. At Salus, environment and social commitment go hand in hand.” – Dr. Florian Block, managing director and fourth generation of owners at Salus
The "plus" in EMASplus integrates social issues into the management system.
