Vetter works towards a sustainable energy supply29 May 2019
All German sites of the pharmaceutical service provider will be supplied with green electricity.
Vetter has reached another important milestone regarding sustainability. Beginning immediately, all German sites of the company will be supplied with only CO2 neutral energy from certified renewable energy sources.
As a partner of biotechnology and pharmaceutical customers both large and small, Vetter has been meeting high international sustainability requirements for many years. The company is certified according to the standards for environmental protection ISO 14001, energy management ISO 50001, as well as occupational health and safety BS OHSAS 18001.
“Sustainability is a central pillar of Vetter’s corporate philosophy and our stance on this subject is firmly anchored within our organization. The supply of our German sites with green electricity is an important part of our company-wide program for environmental protection, energy management, and occupational health and safety,” explains Managing Director Thomas Otto. “Our aim is to act holistically and develop our multi-faceted initiatives in these areas on a continuous basis.”
The next milestone has already been set. Within the next 10 years, Vetter plans to offset the company-wide use of natural gas, making it completely CO2 neutral. Unavoidable CO2 emissions are offset by investments in high-quality climate protection projects.
The largest sustainability project the CDMO recently implemented is at its state-of-the-art center for visual inspection and logistics, which received the international industry prize Facility of the Year Award (FOYA) in 2018 as a Facility of the Future. The site consequently realizes a sustainable energy concept specifically developed by Vetter. This includes the operation of a modern, environmentally friendly block heating and power plant, the use of geothermal energy and the comprehensive use of excess energy, as well as powerful photovoltaic systems, all of which are combined in an energy-efficient manner.
The company-wide EHS program also includes actions for sustainable, resource-efficient management, the promotion of healthy working conditions, and regular training for all staff members to raise their individual awareness of responsible behaviour.
