Environmental aspects

Environmental protection is an issue that concerns us all. This was proven to us not least by the recent events of the flood in summer 2021, which also affected our production. All the more reason for us as a company to see it as our responsibility to design our processes sustainably. In particular, efficient energy consumption and responsible use of resources are in our own business interests.
By acting in an environmentally conscious manner in their personal working environment, every employee at Geck thus contributes to the company’s environmental protection.
