Environmental report for 2022

Paper: A standard paper garbage can with a capacity of 240 liters (green garbage can) is collected monthly by RSAG GmbH. The total amount of paper and cardboard is therefore approx. 2,880 liters per year, which corresponds to approx. 260 kg.

Plastic: A standard plastic garbage can with a capacity of 240 liters (yellow garbage can) is collected monthly by RSAG GmbH and is on average 50% full. The volume of plastic waste (films etc.) is therefore approx. 960 liters per year, which corresponds to approx. 36 kg.

Residual waste: A standard residual waste garbage can with a capacity of 120 liters (black garbage can) is collected monthly by RSAG GmbH. This results in a quantity of 1,440 liters per year, which corresponds to approx. 162 kg.

Waste from office materials: By switching to a virtually paperless office, waste from office processes has been almost completely avoided.

Electronic waste: The professional disposal of electronic waste is carried out by RSAG GmbH. The volume of electronic waste amounted to approx. 50 kg per year.

Metal scrap: 100% of the metal scrap is fed into the recycling cycle. Steel and aluminum scrap with a total weight of approx. 100 kg was generated.

Batteries: Batteries and rechargeable batteries are disposed of properly via RSAG GmbH. The quantity amounted to approx. 3 kg per year.

Water consumption: Fresh water consumption amounted to 30 m³. Green spaces, eco-paving and additional rainwater infiltration systems massively reduce our wastewater volume.

Heating: CO₂ emissions from the heating system amounted to 4.41 tons of CO₂ in 2022.

Vehicles: CO₂ emissions from two cars amounted to 7.3 tons of CO₂ in 2022.

Rail travel: CO₂ emissions from rail travel were equivalent to around 0.5 tons of CO₂ in 2022.

Air travel: There was no air travel in 2022.

Electricity: The total electricity procurement of 3,833 KW by the company E.ON Energie Deutschland GmbH is 100% from renewable energies as part of a new contract (E.ON Komfortstrom Plus tariff).


At Kitotec GmbH, we see our commitment to sustainability as an integral part of our corporate culture. In line with our ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications, we are continuously working to improve our processes and minimize our environmental footprint.

A key aspect of our efforts is working with our suppliers to reduce the consumption of resources. Through careful planning in the purchasing process, we have succeeded in minimizing the need for individual shipments, which not only increases efficiency but also significantly reduces the use of packaging material.

Another focus is the optimization of our packaging in order to reduce waste and volume. We have systematically replaced plastic packaging with easily recyclable paper packaging, which not only reduces the environmental impact but also makes our products more environmentally friendly.

In addition, we have successfully implemented measures to reuse incoming packaging, which has led to a significant reduction in waste volumes. This initiative shows that careful planning and organization along the entire supply chain can have a significant positive impact on our environmental footprint.

Our commitment to reducing waste and CO2 emissions is an ongoing process. We are constantly working to develop more efficient processes and find innovative solutions to further minimize our environmental footprint. In this way, we want to make a sustainable contribution to protecting our environment.

As part of the planning of energy efficiency measures, we have equipped the entire building exclusively with LED lighting. This measure has not only led to a significant reduction in energy consumption, but also to an improvement in the working environment for our employees.

We have also implemented strict planning for energy-efficient devices such as PCs and monitors. By using the latest technologies and continuously optimizing our IT infrastructure, we aim to further reduce our energy consumption.

On our way to climate neutrality, we are planning to build a largely self-sufficient energy supply in 2025 and 2026 by constructing a solar power system, which will cover a significant part of our energy requirements and bring us a big step closer to our goal of climate neutrality.

Our highly efficient heating system is already massively supported by solar thermal modules. By using solar energy for heating, we not only reduce our gas consumption, but also significantly minimize our CO2 emissions. We are also planning to convert our plant to use additional electricity from our own solar system, thereby further reducing the remaining gas consumption.

As part of the ISO 14001 certification, Kitotec GmbH attaches great importance to the commitment of the entire team and continuous improvement in the area of the environment and sustainability. Internal training courses and discussions are held regularly to raise employees' awareness of environmental issues and deepen their understanding of sustainable action. These training sessions provide a platform for the exchange of ideas and best practices in order to jointly develop innovative solutions and further minimize our environmental footprint. By encouraging our teams to become fully engaged, we aim to achieve our sustainability goals and make a positive contribution to protecting our environment.
