Energy management system
AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG feels it has a duty to protect the environment and resources sustainably.
This means that it is continuously optimising the use of energies for environmental and economic reasons.
AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG's energy management system is based on the following principles:
- Natural fossil fuel resources are limited. AGRAVIS therefore uses energy produced from them responsibly.
- AGRAVIS ensures progress through target-oriented investments made to maintain, modernise or further improve the energy efficiency of plants or facilities.
- Every employee has a responsibility to be energy-conscious. AGRAVIS asks every employee to encourage and support innovations that enhance energy efficiency.
- AGRAVIS is constantly striving to work more energy efficiently, either through the reduction of its energy expenditure or better usage of energy sources.
- AGRAVIS helps to ensure it will remain competitive in the future by implementing research and development measures to increase energy frequency.
Energy management is an integral part of every decision made within or by the organisation.
