Directives for environmental protection and sustainability

At PFLITSCH, a responsible approach to the environment and to the use of resources is a top priority. And that has been the case not merely since the population at large has become more aware of the need to protect the environment and statutory regulations have laid down higher standards.

We have always seen sustainability as an opportunity to become ever more innovative and better. We develop solutions that offer great customer benefits, are manufactured in an increasingly efficient and resource-friendly way and do not pollute the environment. We guarantee that our products are ecologically harmless and that all materials and components comply with the required limits and meet the guidelines.
