Nature belongs to every generation. We take responsibility for it.

Our commitment to people and the environment is a deeply ingrained principle at RÜTGERS. We take very seriously our responsibility for natural resources such as water, air and the world’s flora—and for our employees. We manufacture in eco-friendly closed systems. We process all our raw materials for industrial purposes so as to utilize them completely. And we check our facilities regularly to prevent energy leaks as well as ensure the highest possible health and safety standards for our staff. At our Castrop-Rauxel site, we operate an organic treatment facility to keep waters clean.

Maximum energy efficiency

For us, sustainability also means a constant search for ways to improve on environmental protection. One example of this was our decision to set up our own energy center at our Castrop-Rauxel facility in 2004, with a gas and steam turbine plant that allowed us to slash CO2 emissions by one third. In short: Wherever we see an opportunity to protect the environment, we take action.
