umdasch Sustainability

Our Environment

With consideration and care

Infinite efforts are needed in order to optimise the way we treat our finite resources. Or even better, using materials which can be repeatedly recycled and re-used. We therefore use the raw materials we need carefully and sparingly, and make frequent use of secondary raw materials (recycling materials).


That is why we also set high standards for ourselves. We want to become better every day. And so in our environmental policy we are commited to compliance with legal standards and continuous improvement.

Each action has an effect – and ecologically speaking we can measure this effect through the CO2 footprint. And precisely this is our aim: the measurement of the Corporate Carbon Footprint of the five umdasch production locations. First of all we focus on our direct emissions, for example the fuel consumption of our corporate vehicles (Scope 1) and indirect emissions from the generation of purchased electricity, heat or refrigeration (Scope 2). We also take into account selected aspects of indirect emissions along the value-added chain (Scope 3).


However, this is only the first step! Because we are successively improving the ecological design of those areas in which we see the greatest potential for improvement.

Local sourcing

The term “local” describes something native, something regional. However, it is not possible to limit the term to a specific distance. In our interconnected world with its global supply chains, regional origins are becoming more valuable again. They have wide-ranging advantages such as the employment of regional workers and short delivery routes.


Steel is an important raw material for our shopfitting experts. It is also something that we require in large quantities. Here we focus on regional sourcing, in order to keep the transport of these heavy loads to a minimum. Of course that is good for the environment.

Sustainable forestry

The purchase and processing of wood in line with recognised standards such as FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) or PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes) mean for us that we are helping to secure sustainable forestry and the maintenance of social standards.


Our production facility in Zagreb is specialised in wood and metal processing and is our first location to acquire recognised FSC certification.
