Environmental Protection

Environmental statement of Coherent-ROFIN

For green-minded companies, economical reasonable environmental protection measures are the challenge of the 21st century. Coherent-ROFIN is committed to future oriented solutions to maintain and save the environment. By providing innovative laser technologies, we also help customers to create a basis for environmentally friendly materials processing.

Key Principles

Vision:

The careful treatment of the environment expresses our entrepreneurial responsibility and is also a precondition for the social and public acceptance of a company. Within the framework of our economic possibilities we strive for a continuous reduction of the environmental effects of our activities.


Mission statement:
We aim at growing without causing any additional harm to the environment. We use as little energy and raw materials as possible. We take all necessary precautions to avoid emissions and to reduce environmental impact as far as possible and reasonable. We take it as a matter of course to adhere to the official environmental regulations.


Implemented program:
Coherent-ROFIN has successfully implemented the Vision during the past years and operational headquarters are DIN EN ISO 14001:2015 certified since 2002. Since then, the program is expanded under continuous improvement and adapted to any new requirements driven by our customers or by the authorities (EU and Germany). In the framework of the annual ISO 14001 audits, we stay in an open dialog of mutual trust with the authorities and systematically record, evaluate and document the effects of our activities on the environment. We use the results to define the objectives and measures for improvement to drive internal programs accordingly.

Goals and Results

We practice the decision on quantifiable environmental objectives, develop specific measures and check their realization. 

ECO Partnership Hamburg

Due to our achievements in environmental protection on a voluntary basis, since 2007 the location of ROFIN-SINAR Laser GmbH in Hamburg is acknowledged by The Urban Development and Environment Authority of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, as one of the first partners of the initiative “ECO Partnership”.

 
This acknowledgement was achieved by our measures taken to save energy and resources. These include the optimization of the compressed air supply and the heating system, as well as the recertification of our existing environmental management system according to DIN EN ISO 14001:2015, which has been in existence since 2002.
