HSEQ for sustainable economic success

As one of the world's leading processors of premium quality stainless steels and clad materials, the example we set in terms of occupational health and safety, environmental protection and the careful use of resources is commendable.

The high quality of our products, as well as the environment, occupational health and safety, and the search for ways to save energy are all part of our corporate philosophy – the BUTTING mission statement – and play a large part in the success of our company.

Since 2006 at BUTTING in Knesebeck, we have combined quality, environmental protection and occupational health and safety into an Integrated Management System (IMS). We implement the requirements of standards ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001. In 2015, certification of the energy management system in accordance with ISO 50001 was added to this set of standards.

Our main IMS objectives include continuous and sustainable optimisation of our processes, increasing customer satisfaction, and improving our environmental and energy balance, as well as our working conditions. In so doing, we always align our occupational health and safety to international requirements.

Each manager and employee is personally involved in the continuous optimisation of activities and processes and actively contributes suggestions for improvement.
