Our Mission

Climate neutral
testing services

As one of the largest plastics institutes in Europe and a partner to the plastics industry, we want to lead the way with this offer and provide our customers with environmentally friendly added value. Based on the concept, climate-neutral testing services and associated test reports are provided with a green test seal, making the climate and environmental concept visually recognizable.

Our offer

As an institute, we are committed to environmental protection and sustainability in the plastics sector. With our climate-neutral testing services, we offer first-class quality and environmentally friendly added value. Our customers receive a service that not only meets the highest standards, but also focuses on climate and environmental protection. 

How it works

The climate-neutral testing services reduce our CO2 emissions and thus make a positive contribution to climate protection. When placing an order, our customers can decide whether their order should be climate-neutral. The additional revenue generated through a small surcharge is reinvested in climate-friendly projects.

Our projects to reduce CO2 emissions

  • Combined heat and power plant
  • Solar thermal system 
  • Efficient measuring, control and regulation unit (MSR) for reducing electricity consumption from LIVARSA GmbH

These measures have already led to significant savings, including a 4.7 percent reduction in electrical losses (equivalent to a CO2 saving of 53 tons per year). In addition:

  • Climate protection projects (through the purchase of greenhouse gas emission certificates, 
    Verified Carbon Standard; category "Forests and forestry")

Our future

We remain committed to reducing our greenhouse gas emissions in the coming years. Planned projects: 

  • Connection to the local heating pipeline of the waste-to-energy plant
  • Installation of solar panels on the parking areas at our sites 
  • Switching the vehicle fleet to vehicles with zero or lower CO2 emissions

In addition to our comprehensive testing services, we are also pleased to be able to offer you a module to promote climate protection. Feel free to contact us to find out more about our climate-neutral testing services!
