kmb – Fully automated production at the cutting edge

 

Fully automated production and measuring systems go hand in hand with constantly increasing power consumption. With the purchase of a 50 kW photovoltaic system in 2019, kmb took the first steps towards conserving resources. The system was continuously expanded and kmb soon had 216 kWp available.

Environmental aspects and sustainability play a crucial role for kmb. The company is environmentally certified according to ISO 14001, the international customer base, but also the responsibility for future generations require such measures. This environmental strategy and guidelines for sustainability are practiced at kmb with the aim of conserving energy resources even more from year to year and reducing the use of fossil fuels.

90% of the electricity generated is used by kmb itself. This saves around 27 tons of “Co²” (carbon dioxide) every year. The electricity generated by the PV system not only runs the modern machine park, but at kmb visitors and employees will also find three electric charging stations that employees can use free of charge.
