STEICO’s Sustainability report
You can find out more about our sustainable commitment in the STEICO sustainability report.
Right from day one, protecting nature and the responsible use of renewable raw materials have been central values in STEICO's corporate philosophy. We invest continuously in sustainable projects, e.g. in our own biomass power plants to generate steam and heat for production.
Starting in 2020, STEICO will also use biomass to generate part of the electricity required by the company using a turbine on the boiler system. Other projects focus, for example, on avoiding waste, closed water cycles and heat recovery. In the past five years alone, the company has invested more than 25 million euros in sustainability.
With measurable success: From 2016 to 2018, STEICO was able to increase the energy generated from biomass by 79 percent and energy efficiency by 17 percent. Since July 2019, regular production operations at the Czarna Woda plant have been fully converted to biomass, followed by Czarnków in September 2019.
