Environmental certification according to ISO 14001

Environmental certification for ViGEM 

Sustainable behavior protects resources and the environment. ViGEM GmbH has been certified according to the international standard ISO 14001 for its foresight and prudence in environmental management. "The high standards we set for big data logging solutions for validating automated and autonomous driving we likewise apply to our environmental management. Our aim is to act sustainably and become the market leader for high-performance data logging solutions in international competition”, explains CEO Markus Trauth.

ViGEM’s environmental management includes the planning, control, monitoring, and improvement of all operational measures for the protection of the environment and employee management. The company-specific goals, requirements and measures were listed in an environmental management catalog. These include, for example, the ongoing reduction of energy consumption and pollutant emissions, a multi-level waste hierarchy system, and the reduction of business trips to a necessary minimum. By promoting video conferencing and car-sharing, ViGEM contributes to reducing CO2 emissions and advancing global climate protection.

To conserve natural resources during the development, production, and recycling of ViGEM products, the consumption of raw materials, energy, and water should be minimized, and waste quantities should be reduced. Besides, waste and residues, which inevitably arise in the course of product life cycles must be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner. Both, the certifications to ISO 14001 (environment) and ISO 9001 (quality seal) are pillars of our integrated management system and an important basis for building a partnership of trust with suppliers and customers.
