Independent certifications based on commonly acknowledged standards create trust. This applies to the handling of energy and waste as well as to the use of new technologies and the products resulting from them. We are also actively involved in numerous associations and initiatives to make a circular economy for plastics a reality.
Energy management ensures that the essential functions are complied with in the context of the orderly management of companies and organizations. Therefore, energy management systems must be highly efficient and operate without interferences. With its certification according to DIN EN ISO 50001, APK had addresses precisely this, improving its energy-related performance, increasing energy efficiency and at the same time optimizing its energy use.
As a certified specialist waste management company, APK certifies that it meets the requirements of the Specialist Waste Management Company Ordinance (EfbV) within the context of voluntary monitoring.
