Just how seriously Format Werk takes its role as a pioneer in environmental protection in the paper processing industry became apparent at the recent award of Austria’s best-known environmental label:
The Austrian Eco-Label (“Österreichisches Umweltzeichen“) is intended to help consumers make a sustainable purchase decision: It distinguishes goods or services that combine a high environmental standard with quality and product safety.
For the first time, the European Eco-Label also goes to Format Werk
On behalf of Format Werk, environmental officer Kurt Mayer accepted the certificate in Vienna and heard Federal Minister Elisabeth Köstinger praising words: Format Werk is a showpiece company that not only fulfils but even exceeds the legal requirements in terms of environmental protection.
At the ceremonial act on 25 April 2018, 42 companies and organisations that operate sustainably were awarded the Austrian and European eco-labels. Format Werk has been a licensee of the Austrian Ecolabel for several years in a row, this year the European Ecolabel was awarded to the Upper Austrian company for the first time.
Sustainable management for future generations
More than 4,400 products and services now carry the state eco-label. Format Werk is proud to be one of these environmentally conscious decision-makers – after all, it is our responsibility to make the ecological footprint as sustainable as possible in order to ensure an intact environment for future generations.
