For the Environment

Energy management at IMR

We at IMR see ourselves as a small wheel in the global machinery of the resources recycling system to counteract the use and resulting depletion of raw materials used in the primary industries worldwide.

Recycling is sustainability par excellence. Sustainability is no trend which tomorrow will be a thing of the past again. It is much rather a paradigm shift which already started and vitally affects, not least, the commercial success of companies in all sectors and markets.

IMR has set itself the task of combining, in the best possible way, entrepreneurial results and sustainable actions in the best interest of its customers, suppliers and of society as a whole. Accordingly, we have committed ourselves, inter alia, to lastingly and continuously reduce and optimize our energy utilization across all energy sources within the framework of our company’s possibilities and limitations and in compliance with the applicable laws and regulations. With the introduction of an energy management system (ISO 50001), we are able to use our energy sources in an eco-friendly manner and, at the same time, we are increasing our efficiency.
