At HOPPE, consideration for the environment is of “constitutional” importanceEveryone bears responsibility for a healthy environment, but an industrial company, with its employees and many links in society, should be aware of its increased responsibility.

 

Our stance on the environment is based on the recognition that the conflicting aims of economy and ecology don’t actually exist. No system is more sparing and efficient than nature herself. It’s her processes which teach us efficiency and thrift:

 

Economy = Ecology

 

Based on economic-ecological demands, HOPPE seeks to achieve its goals as economically as possible using the means available as efficiently as possible, in other words, with due consideration for its resources. This is why we aim to

 

  • increase the level of effectiveness by taking due care of the resources available
  • avoid producing unwanted waste as much as possible.
