As a highly innovative family business, we assume responsibility. Both every single one of our employees as well as we as a company.
Our environment, resources and our society are very important to us. That’s why we strive every day to deal with this in a sustainable and responsible manner.
This means taking responsibility in economic, social and ecological terms. We assume responsibility for our products, resources, production and supply chain, employees and society.
For us, above all, this means never standing still, but always being on an optimisation course.
Anyone who uses our professional cleaning equipment already makes a significant contribution to the issue of sustainability. Because our product portfolio serves the cleaning and thus the preservation of premises and objects. Our high-quality products are energy-saving, resource-saving and particularly quiet. They achieve a perfect cleaning result. Thanks to a multiple filtration system, including a HEPA 13 filter cartridge and filter bag in our ERA model series, they guarantee extremely clean blow-out air and predect the user and all persons in the environment.
As a German company, we are very proud to manufacture our top products at our headquarters in Germany. In addition, the majority of the added value of our entire product range starts from here – from the development of our products to marketing and sales. We maintain long-standing relationships with our suppliers and reliable, honest partnerships. When selecting our suppliers, they undergo a careful examination with regard to social and ecological factors.
When developing and designing our products, their outstanding quality and functionality comes first.
At the same time, we attach great importance to making them as sustainable and resource-saving as possible.
Already today, the proportion of recycled plastic in our Floory and our ERA model series is over 50%. In the future, we will consistently reduce the proportion of new plastics in our products and, while maintaining quality and functionality of our products, replace them with recycled plastic.
We also offer selected carbon neutral products. For these, we have determined the CO₂ emissions in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol and offset them by supporting internationally recognised carbon offset projects.
In addition to the compact, ergonomic and lightweight design, the durability of our extremely robust and resistant products also plays an important role in terms of sustainability. Strict test procedures ensure an extra long lifetime of the motor.
With the efficient and energy-saving 700 watt motors of the ERA TEC and ERA PRO, our customers benefit from an extremely low sound pressure level of only 49 LpA [dB]. Right from product development, we make sure that repairs are easy to carry out. For this purpose, we also offer our customers rapid spare parts availability within 48 hours as well as a very wide range of spare parts. However, sustainability plays an important role not only in the development and production of products but also in their disposal. Our products are therefore made of recyclable materials.
We pursue the goal of minimising our ecological footprint. That is why we use our finite resources as efficiently as possible and at the same time rely on renewable energies. Our photovoltaic system at our company location in South Germany produces approx. 550 MWh of electricity per year. In 20 years, the plant will save as much CO₂ as 2,671 beech trees store over the course of 55 years. Our customers and employees also have their own charging stations at their disposal, where they can charge their electric vehicles for free. Our location is also equipped with LED lighting and we attach great importance to the use of green electricity.
Through increasingly digital conferences, we are reducing business travel to a minimum and thus also the greenhouse gas emissions caused by train, car and plane. We reduce product packaging to the bare essentials, rely primarily on cardboard packaging material and avoid packaging waste from local suppliers to the furthest extent possible, for example, by using special transport boxes. As part of the delivery to our customers, we pay attention to a 100% climate-neutral parcel shipping.
With indispensable expertise and passion, our employees are committed to our company and our customers every day. They have made SPRiNTUS and its high-quality innovative products what they are today. As a company, we bear responsibility for our employees, the most important asset of our company. We guarantee secure jobs through successful products and responsible action and do everything we can to ensure the best possible working environment, regardless of if this concerns further training opportunities, the compatibility of work and family or the health of our employees. Ergonomic, modern workplaces are a matter of course for us. For a positive working atmosphere, regular team building measures and company events are important to us. As an expanding family business, we are pleased to count numerous long-standing employees.
For us, assuming responsibility in ecological, social and economic terms means always being on course for optimisation. That is why we set ambitious goals for ourselves. Becoming a carbon neutral company is an important milestone for us. We are not only a carbon neutral company, we also offer carbon neutral products. Based on a holistic climate strategy, we were able to determine the CO₂ footprint of our company and selected products. This was followed by measures to reduce and offset CO₂ emissions by supporting internationally recognised carbon offset projects.
With the action we take on the entrepreneurial level, we bear far more responsibility than just for SPRiNTUS as a company and our employees. Sustainable action has an impact across company and national borders. That is why we take responsibility for the entire society.
