Resource-saving production at BRAND

Our contribution for our environment

At BRAND, intelligent resource management is a certified part of our company guidelines. Our environmental management system has been certified according to DIN EN ISO 14001 since 1998. Therefore, we are committed to continuously optimizing our environmental performance. In addition, our energy management system has also been certified according to DIN EN ISO 50001 since 2015. This makes us one of the pioneers in our industry for the intelligent use of energy.

Reduce - reuse - recycle

Renewable energy
BRAND uses 100 % renewable energy from certified hydroelectric power plants. With the Wertheim public utility company, we have found a regional partner to help us achieve this. We produce some of our own electricity as a by-product of the heat generated in our combined heat and power unit. This is an efficient use of energy.



Reusable packaging

To prevent unnecessary packaging, we try as much as possible to have our production materials delivered in reusable packages, which are then returned to the supplier and refilled multiple times. To prevent long transport routes, we work with regional suppliers to procure many of our production materials.

Material-saving pipette tips
Our pipette tips also demonstrate how

we are working to increase the resource

efficiency of consumables. We developed

a production method that allows us to

manufacture our tips in an especially

thin-walled design, which in turn saves

materials. With the TipRack refilling

system, we have also reduced the amount

of waste by more than 20 % when

compared with the TipBox.
