SCHOTT already began removing the dust from glass melting tanks in Mainz in 1978. Ten years later, the exhaust air from the smokestacks was already more than 99% dust-free.
Environmental protection has to be managed
The Integrated Management System for Safety, Security, Health and Environment (IMSU/EHS 2010) plays an important role for the group and encourages us to become active in the areas of environmental protection, occupational safety, healthcare and emergency management.
Currently, approx. 40 manufacturing units and thus 70% of all SCHOTT operations have been IMSU certified. This means they are subject to a uniform group-wide improvement process that is monitored on a frequent basis. These requirements often extend even beyond what the national standards call for.
