R. STAHL PROTECTS PEOPLE AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Our modern way of life would not be possible without fossil fuels such as oil and natural gas and their industrial use. However, if not done with appropriate precautions, the extraction and further processing of these raw materials could result in life-threatening risks for both people and ecosystems. The same applies to many other combustible gases, liquids and dusts.
R. STAHL designs its products and solutions with the sole aim of preventing explosions and minimizing the potential risks associated with the production and processing of combustible gases, liquids and dusts. This enables us to protect people, plant and the environment. We also feel committed to this claim when structuring our internal processes and actions. We ensure that we act according to environmental, social and corporate standards. We place great emphasis on respecting the environment and on maintaining good relationships with our stakeholders, notably our customers, suppliers, business partners, employees and shareholders.
As a manufacturing company in the electrical engineering and electronics industry, R. STAHL acquires a wide range of raw materials from various sources. Our manufacturing processes and products also use metals, including tantalum, tin, wolfram and gold, which are predominantly extracted from ores (also known as „conflict minerals“) using smelting procedures. In some few regions of the world, there is a risk that the materials acquired from the extraction of such ores or gold can be used to finance armed conflicts. There are very limited possibilities available here for tracing the origin of the raw materials used in the production of the metals back to a specific region since it is only possible to determine chemical or geographical origin before smelting.
R. STAHL unreservedly supports all efforts aimed at effectively and verifiably preventing and limiting armed conflicts and crisis situations in any country. We monitor compliance to this obligation using a process we have implemented especially for this purpose.
