A positive spin on the Environment: Hettich Instruments.
We take environmental responsibility seriously and strive to continuously improve our manufacturing and operational practices. These intentions start with our company headquarters in Tuttlingen, Germany. The newly constructed office building, completed in 2006, is comprised of many green features and current green building technologies.
For example, one of the key features for the reduction of energy emissions is the self-cooling, naturally ventilated design. Motorized roof skylights and automated aluminum blinds keep the building shielded from direct sunlight. This allows the building to maintain a consistent temperature inside reducing the use of air conditioning. Amongst other building materials and design processes, Hettich made sure the environmental concern started from within.
In regards to our products, Hettich continues to bring environmental awareness into our product designs:
Hettich Instruments is a low chemical use company that recycles waste and spare parts in addition to packaging and shipping materials. We print our marketing material on FSC certified paper. The FSC is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests. We also print our marketing material using soy-based inks on recycled paper comprised of both pre-consumer and post consumer waste.
