Our company, IMR Innovative Metal Recycling GmbH, is certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015, DIN EN ISO 50001:2018 and DIN EN ISO 14001:2015, a certification accord-ing to DIN EN ISO 45001:2018 is aspired soon.
Our corporate policy has been defined in accordance with the corporate principles, the applicable legal requirements, the binding obligations and the requirements of our interested parties. It is reviewed annually for appropriateness, adequacy and compatibility with our business processes and adjusted if necessary.
In the respective management systems, the context of the organisation, the interested parties and the resulting internal and external issues were analysed. The central objective is to ensure continuous improvement with regard to quality, occupational health and safety, energy and the environment through the consistent application of our management systems.
Quality assurance, occupational safety, health and environmental protection as well as energy efficiency enjoy top priority in the context of our service provision.
For this reason, we as management are committed to providing all necessary information and resources for the introduction and maintenance of the management systems at all times.
We are convinced that healthy employees are more efficient, motivated and healthier, which in turn has a positive impact on the overall performance of the company. We invest in the health of our employees by operating a company health management system and working towards continuous health improvement.
In terms of prevention, we are committed to avoiding work-related injuries or illnesses, accidents, personal injury and property damage by providing safe and healthy working conditions. Our specific hazards are known to us and are controlled by our personnel. We are committed to eliminating hazards, minimising health risks and preventing injury or damage to our employees, customers, suppliers, visitors and other stakeholders wherever possible. Technical and organisational measures have the highest priority. In addition, we regularly consult with management and our employees on occupational health and safety issues and work continuously to improve them.
Although our core business with the processing of secondary raw materials is already energysaving, environmentally friendly and sustainable compared to the extraction of primary raw materials, we are nevertheless aware that our economic activities also have an impact on the environment. We are therefore committed to keeping our negative impact on the environment as low as possible and to protecting the environment as best we can.
To this end, we regularly evaluate the impact of all production steps with regard to their effect on the environment.
We see it as our duty to determine and constantly monitor energy consumption and other measurable environmental parameters. In this way, suitable measures can be prioritised and taken on the basis of various parameters in order to continuously avoid or reduce environmental pollution.
Every use of energy is made on an economical and environmentally friendly basis. We use resources sparingly and identify substitution possibilities for hazardous substances to protect people and the environment. Used materials are always returned to the cycle. If this is not possible, they are recycled for energy. In the continuous further development of our technical facilities, processes and organisational structures, we are always guided by the current state of the art.
We guarantee a stable quality of our services, because this is the basis of a longterm successful business activity. For us, quality means not only meeting the expressed but also the unspoken expectations of our customers and, if possible, exceeding them. We have recognised that the quality of our products and services is an important criterion for our customers in their decision to buy and place orders and contributes to long-term customer loyalty. Our understanding of quality ensures the success and competitiveness of our company. To maintain and improve quality, it is essential to maintain and continuously improve occupational health and safety management, environmental management and energy management.
Legal and binding obligations as well as other requirements, such as customer requirements, represent a minimum standard for us. It is our goal to meet more than the legal minimum standards through continuous improvement of our management systems. The requirements of the management systems are effectively integrated into our business processes.
Moreover, our process flows are clearly defined and documented. Necessary documentation is managed on a crossdepartmental basis. All decisions, measures and projects are reviewed with regard to negative effects on quality, occupational health and safety, energy consumption, environmental impact and sustainability aspects, and the results are taken into account in further action. If necessary, improvement measures are introduced.
Customers and suppliers are also involved in optimising our performance standards where possible. This includes regular supplier assessments of their practices on the topics that are based on our management system. We inform potential customers about additional assessment criteria of our management systems.
We maintain open communication with our business partners, the authorities, neighbours, the public and within IMR Innovative Metal Recycling GmbH on the topics of quality, occupational health and safety, energy, the environment and sustainability. For this reason, we make important topics available on our website and have been compiling an annual sustainability report since 2023.
Our employees are of enormous importance for our high standards. All employees are involved in the implementation and maintenance of the management systems and contribute to the goals of the management systems through their actions. Therefore, we consciously provide our employees with opportunities to actively participate in the de-sign and improvement of the management systems. For this purpose, there is a suggestion system in which every employee can make suggestions on the topics of the management systems and sustainability. Regular instruction/training and continuous information promote awareness of quality, occupational health and safety, energy, the environment and sustainability and contribute to continuous improvement.
We support the attendance of training courses and further education, which promotes professional development and employee satisfaction and contributes to increasing the company’s competence.
Basically, the implemented and planned management systems contribute to creating a positive, social working climate, averting economic losses, reducing costs in the long term and consequently securing the existence of the company in the long term.
The corporate policy forms the framework for the goals and initiatives that result from the management systems. A constant consideration of ecological, social and economic aspects forms the basis of sustainable working methods.
With the help of certifications, regular external audits and the documentation of our striving for continuous improvement with regard to quality, occupational health and safety, energy, the environment and sustainability are ensured.
