Environmental protection – a subject that concerns us all
For every future-oriented company environment protection it is an absolute must. Already since 2003 Klauke is engaged in the project “Ökopropfit” of the local tri-city area of Wuppertal, Remscheid and Solingen.
Today certification demonstrating compliance with the international standard ISO 14001:2004 has taken place. The certification awards companies dealing actively with this subject and having established an appropriate environmental management.

The use of materials such as lead, cadmium, hexavalent chrome and mercury is prohibited. Klauke supports this directive and does not use any of the materials just mentioned in its products.
