Prepare for Tomorrow 

A shared journey to sustainability

Prepare for Tomorrow is our collective commitment to a sustainable future. At Ensinger, we strive to be your steadfast partner on this journey. We focus on reducing our CO2 footprint, aiming for net zero in Scope 1 - 3 according to GHG protocol. These actions include energy-saving measures and environmental efforts, which help to fulfill our responsibility to nature.

Certified Environment Management

Our commitment to a sustainable future is also embodied in our active adoption of ISO 14001 as part of our ongoing Prepare for Tomorrow initiative. ISO 14001, an internationally recognized environmental management system, is central to our mission. It guides us in identifying, monitoring and enhancing our eco-friendly practices across all operations. Going beyond certification, ISO 14001 is our pledge to make a positive environmental impact. By integrating this standard into our processes, we aim to conserve resources, minimize emissions, and prioritize sustainable practices in everything we do.

Certified Energy Management

Ensinger holds the ISO 50001 certification, signifying our adherence to an internationally recognized standard for effective energy management systems. ISO 50001 guides organizations in monitoring, measuring, controlling and continually enhancing their energy performance, resulting in efficient energy consumption reduction. Learn more about energy management.

Get prepared on the journey to sustainability

In order to move towards sustainability, it is essential to work on reducing the footprint of our products. Due to the chemical nature of high-temperature plastics, it is difficult to change the processing steps or the required processing temperatures without affecting the quality. For this reason, we are converting our production to renewable energies, investing in our machinery to make production more efficient and looking for sustainable plastic alternatives that have a smaller ecological footprint. In the sustainability report, you will always find the latest figures and projects that bring us one step closer to net zero.

  • There are many regulations that develop dynamically due to political, environmental and demographic factors. Some of these are shown in the graphic below.
  • In terms of alternative products to fossil based materials, Ensinger offers a range of sustainable options. Products made of bio-based plastics, whose components are obtained from biological waste instead of fossil sources (e.g. from the wood industry or organic waste) as well as products made from production left overs from machining or production processes, which are mechanically reprocessed into new stock shapes. The sustainable solutions empower our customers to make choices according to their individual preferences and specifications.
  • Biomass balanced signifies the incorporation of organic raw materials, sourced from kitchen or agricultural waste or residues from the wood industry for instance. Through a chemical process, these materials are transformed into bio-based monomers, which is then blended with fossil monomers and processed through the same chemical reactions into polymers as pure fossil products. The resulting mixture, comprising both bio and fossil monomers, is classified as biomass balanced.

    The distinction between biomass balanced and mass balanced lies in the source materials. Biomass balanced products use organic raw materials, while mass balanced products may utilise chemically recycled plastic monomers, among other sources, blended with fossil monomers during production.
