As a foundation company, Boysen always considers conservation of the natural world and the quality of life of future generations. Our stated corporate objective is: "Protect, maintain and shape the environment". From this we derive our three environmental principles.
This is demonstrated by Friedrich Boysen GmbH & Co. KG's continuously optimised environmental management system, which is certified in compliance with the international standard ISO 14001, and is validated and registered under the European Union's environment programme EMAS (Eco-Management
and Audit Scheme). A key element of our participation in EMAS is the creation and publication of an environmental declaration. This sets out in detail our environment-related activities along with corresponding environmental data, such as resource and energy consumption. Our environmental officer will be happy to provide a printed copy on request. Some examples are briefly outlined below:
The Friedrich Boysen GmbH & Co. KG EMAS logo documents the continuous improvement of our environmental performance and the consistent involvement of all employees.
