As an industrial company, resource
efficiency is one of our fundamental objectives. This begins when we develop
products and processes - conserving resources - working efficiently -
optimising our processes - protecting the climate.
The companies of the Hoftex Group have been
practicing systematic energy management for years. Thanks to the introduction
of a certified energy-management system, we can continuously monitor all
processes for energy efficiency, identifying and eliminating any weak points,
thereby becoming increasingly energy efficient and thus increasingly
energy-saving. We set standards at all of
our German locations with audits under the demanding ISO 50001 standard.
Through continuous auditing of our
processes and products, we ensure our customers constantly improved quality,
reliability and future-driven development. We are certified according to DIN
ISO 9001, DIN
We continuously compile consumption figures
for all media and raw materials and evaluate these figures with a view to
possible improvements. We set targets for ourselves in order to achieve
continuous improvement in our environmental and energy footprint.
We continuously invest in new technologies with which we can manufacture our products more efficiently and with fewer resources. We are also constantly updating our plant technology with an eye to reducing energy consumption. We make use of the latest technologies, such as e.g. software-supported LED lighting systems, managed compressed-air generation and heat recovery systems.
Our continuous product optimisation and new
development is geared towards the use of environmentally friendly input
materials. At Tenowo, for instance, we have been using recycled and
regeneratively produced fibres for years. Worldwide, Tenowo declines to use
flame retardants containing halogens or antimony.
Our fleet is constantly renewed through consistent fleet management. For example, we have added an electric car to our fleet, as fuel consumption and CO² emissions are key decision-making criteria for us.
Thanks to a variety of measures and
projects instituted, we have successfully managed to reduce the use of valuable
During the period of 2008-2014, Tenowo achieved the following savings:
Anfang Januar diesen Jahres hatte die Kunsthochschule Berlin Weißensee beim STFI (Sächsisches Textilforschungsinstitut e.V.) eine Anfrage nach einer Material-Probe von Carbonvliessstoff gestellt. Das Institut hat darauf hin die Kunsthochschule an die Tenowo GmbH verwiesen.
Die Stadt Hof hat ihren Fuhrpark um ein Elektrofahrzeug erweitert, das sie für die Pflege ihrer Stadien und Sportplätze einsetzt.
