Energy generation 100% from renewable energy sources
The entire company, including production, is already supplied 100% from renewable energy sources. The expansion of the solar installation on the company premises in spring 2021 was a further step and expanded the climate-neutral energy generation many times over by means of additional solar energy panels in the company. The use of heat pump technology has already been in use for some time and complements climate-neutral energy generation in an optimal way. In this way, Schlichter GmbH in Dettingen uses a 100% renewable energy mix that serves as a model for other companies.
Optimisation of recycling processes
Schlichter is also a pioneer in the continuous development of recycling processes and the responsible use of valuable resources by optimising business processes. The development of optimised films with reduced thickness, while maintaining the same strength, excellent transparency and brilliance, enables the production of packaging films with less material input. Making optimum use of resources and returning them to the recycling cycle after use has been a key issue for Schlichter in Dettingen for more sustainability and environmental protection for several years now.
