As the world's first phosphate producer, we have introduced an environmental management system at Budenheim and have successfully obtained ISO 14001 certification. In addition, we have participated in the European Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) for over 20 years. The special significance of the environment venture has been proven ever since through our sustainable environmental policy. A company policy that fulfils economic, social and environmental aspects.

Since 1995 we have significantly improved all relevant environmental aspects. Our environmental measurements and key environmental indicators prove this very impressively. An example? Our improvement management methodology Six Sigma is implemented throughout the whole company.

This is equivalent to the annual natural gas consumption of 92 family homes.

At Budenheim, environmental protection is more than a passing notion.

Nature is helped by actions, not words. In light of this, we have consistently defined the coexistence of the environment and chemical production in our company aims, and have established an environmental division.

A clear structure ensures that environmental protection is embraced throughout the entire company - tasks, authorities and responsibilities are clearly regulated. ... more
