Bavarian Environmental Pact

Umweltpakt Bayern ("Bavarian Environmental Pact")

HAWE has been a member of the "Umweltpakt Bayern" since the beginning of 2019 and is thus committed to a voluntary environmental performance.

The company is certified according to the international environmental management standard ISO 14001 as well as ISO 50001 (energy management) and thus meets all requirements to be included in the "Umweltpakt Bayern". For HAWE Hydraulik the subject of environmental and energy management is of great importance.

HAWE have already begun to develop and implement such systems in 2008. Through the other project partners HAWE gains access to further information and possibilities in operational environmental protection and impulses and ideas for new projects.

The "Umweltpakt Bayern" has existed since 1995 and is "renewed" in a cycle of 5 years. The current phase runs until 22 October 2020 and the three most important topics of the pact are

  • Climate and energy
  • Environmentally oriented management
  • Sustainable use of resources and Integrated Product Policy (IPP)

These broader aspects are complemented and supported by other objectives of the Environmental Pact. These include, for example, limiting and coping with climate change, intensifying energy system transformation, improving energy efficiency, deepening environmental partnerships and the efficient and sustainable use of raw materials. Furthermore, the attractiveness of biological diversity for companies and their responsibility is to be made clear and environmentally oriented management in companies is to be strengthened.

Due to its participation in the "Umweltpakt Bayern" (Bavarian Environmental Pact) and the associated environmental commitment of HAWE Hydraulik SE, the administrative district of Munich honored the company with a medal and a certificate during the honor ceremony "Gemeinsam Umwelt und Wirtschaft stärken" (Strengthening the environment and the economy together) in the ballroom of the Munich Landsrat Office.
