rhoba-chemie CO₂ compensation

rhoba-chemie GmbH is committed to assume its own share of accountability to the future and is actively and voluntarily contributing to a sustainable development in this respect, going far beyond legal requirements.

The basic values of rhoba-chemie:

safety, reliability, environmental orientation” have been lived and consequently implemented in our company by all our employees for many years.

This has been a known fact for years, underlined by the voluntary certifications obtained from DEKRA according to ISO 9001 (quality management), ISO 14001 (environmental management) and ILO OHSAS (International Labour Organization / Occupational Health and Safety Management System).

In this conjunction, rhoba-chemie enjoys the exemplary support of the renowned QM-SUPPORT consultancy bureau, Mr. Gieseke, of Bad Oeynhausen, Germany, and KHG, Mr. Haemisch, of Bielefeld, Germany.

For many years, Dipl.-Ing. Richard Gieseke has been serving as a supervising auditor to the company and able to regularly provide new impulses to rhoba-chemie.

Thanks to its environmental management system, rhoba-chemie successfully succeeds in reducing environmental pollution. However, Mr. Bernd Henner Niemann, managing director of rhoba-chemie, is not willing to content himself with the present situation. In association with his employees, he is constantly looking for new possibilities to further improve the various ecological aspects. For example, KHG is appointed to carry out an energy audit, and rhoba-chemie doesn’t hesitate to immediately implement the measures for saving energy contained in said audit.
Long before CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) became a generally known term, the company had been acting accordingly for a period of time. Today, CSR stands for conscientious and entrepreneurial activities on the actual market, bearing in mind environmental aspects, respectful behaviour toward employees as well as general social responsibility.

In summary this can be regarded as a sustainable approach to the issues of economy, ecology and social affairs.

As a result from this responsibility, the idea was born to offset the inevitable CO2 emissions by way of compensation. The total CO2 emissions of the company were determined in cooperation with QM-SUPPORT and the approved Prima-Klima-weltweit e.V. association. Such emissions which, aside from production also include business trips, automobile use and heating of the company, are now 100% compensated by planting new trees in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany. As a matter of fact, this is a significant contribution to the reduction of the greenhouse effect.

The recently awarded certificate No. 418 issued on October 2nd, 2012 by the registered Prima-Klima-weltweit association certifies the afforestation of about 3.3 hectare up to a total surface area of 5.6 hectare. This allows for approximately 336 tons of carbon dioxide to be bound within a decade. Hence follows that over the course of 50 years, 5 times the amount of CO2 can be compensated.

rhoba-chemie GmbH’s commitment represents a further exemplary contribution to climate protection.

It is the objective of rhoba-chemie to continue to assume social responsibility and to provide its contribution to a livable world.
