​​​​​​​Environment Policy

Sustainability and the preservation and protection of our environment are matters of great concern to AVL LIST GmbH.

A considerable part of our services and products aims to reduce environmental pollution worldwide.

The minimization and anticipatory avoidance of environmental pollution have become an integral part of our way of acting and thinking and are firmly anchored in the strategies and processes of our company.

In addition to compliance with statutory provisions and the use of environmentally friendly equipment and machinery – in as far as economically reasonable – we show proof of a continuous improvement of the site-based environmental protection measures. For this reason, in-house processes are controlled and optimized on an ongoing basis in order to identify and correct trouble spots to ensure the continuous improvement for industrial environmental protection. Our staff, as well as suppliers, service providers and trading partners are integrated in this process in order to live up to values such as sustainability and environmental protection on a cross-company basis as well.

The contents of our environmental policy, the environmental program and the environmental efforts are approved of by the management and their efficacy is assessed at regular intervals.

This environmental policy is binding for all employees of AVL List GmbH.

  • The sense of responsibility for the environment of all employees is encouraged by means of regular trainings and information.
  • An objective assessment, monitoring and reduction of the effects on the environment are carried out as early as in the planning phase, during design, procurement, at the place of work and during storage.
  • The application and the further development of energy- and water-saving low-emission and low-waste technologies is promoted incessantly. Preventive measures for saving resources are taken, and furthermore for preventing environmentally relevant incidents and minimizing their effects on the environment (during normal and abnormal operation).
  • In-house rules serve to monitor the environmental management system and result in the implementation of corrective measures when the environmental objectives are not reached.
  • AVL List GmbH undertakes to comply with acts, directives and regulatory restrictions.
  • The general public (residents, government authorities, customers) is given the information necessary for a better understanding of the industrial site and its implications. The dialog with the general public and the scientific community takes precedence over confrontation.
  • Precautionary measures are taken to ensure that suppliers, customers and subcontractors working on site are made aware of the environmental policy applicable at the site and are requested to comply with it.
  • The management is required to lead by example.
