The general protection of the environment and the conscious use of natural resources is part of the fundamental business philosophy of EMKA. The continuous execution of planning and implementation of the production flow, as well as technical changes to the building, are all visible consequences of this environmental awareness. This approach results in the constant issuing of certification according to the international environmental management standard (DIN ISO 14001) by Germanischer Lloyd since January 2007.
- Solar energy plant on the roof top for water heating in the communal rooms
- Closed coolant circulation in the plastic manufacturing
- Reprocessing of water for the production process in zinc die casting manufacturing
- Modernisation of the complete heating system. Individual parts of the production or office buildings can be heated by central programmable control technology
- Further energy savings can be achieved with temperature reduction at night time and at the weekend
Under the REACH regulation, EMKA is a manufacturer and supplier of products within the EEA (European Economic Area). EMKA does not
manufacture or supply Substances or Preparations. All EMKA products do not involve the intentional release of substances. The compliance
certificate is reviewed and eventually updated periodically according to the SVHCs new list published by ECHA.
EMKA products do not contain REACH Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) in a concentration above the threshold value of 0.1%, as specified per ECHA Directive 1907/2006/EG (updated for SVHC candidates list from 15-June-2015).
All products made by EMKA are RoHS compliant. This means that the substances restricted by the RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS II) are not contained in finished products above the concentration limit at homogeneous material level stated in the RoHS Directive, unless the restricted substance is subject of an exemption contained in the RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU.
The products offered by EMKA are intended solely for B2B trade (in accordance with the WEEE-directive). After being used, they can be
returned to us or disposed of by a commercial waste management company. A disposal through the municipal waste management system is
not permitted! If products are returned to EMKA , we will see to their correct recycling or disposal.
EMKA is working towards ensuring that our products do not contain “conflict minerals 3TG ( Tin, Tantalum, Gold and Wolfram )” that have been sourced from mines that support or fund conflict within the Democratic Republic of Congo or adjoining countries. We work closely with our suppliers to ensure the responsible sourcing of conflict minerals.
