Renewable energy sources
We are committed to renewable energies.
The switch to renewable energies for our sustainable production at THIMM sites is an important contribution to climate protection.
Sustainable production with Net Zero green electricity
At THIMM we are committed to renewable energy sources for our sustainable production. A sustainable use of resources is one of the most important objectives in our sustainability strategy. Through this new energy plan we want to further optimise the energy efficiency of the entire THIMM Group and make our production even more sustainable.
Our purchased green energy for the sustainable production of packaging, displays and preprint is certified in accordance with the TÜV Süd EE standard recognised throughout Europe and registered in the German national register of guarantees of origin (HKNR).The green electricity comes 100% from European hydroelectric power plants with state-of-the-art environmental standards. Unlike conventional energy sources, renewable energies do not generate CO₂e emissions nor nuclear waste.
Last year we consumed more than 30,000 MWh of green electricity. Evidence from the Federal Environment Agency is available (redemption statement).
Green electricity at all sites
Our production sites in France, Poland, the Czech Republic and Romania are planning the conversion via the local power suppliers, who will then provide the necessary labels for the green electricity certificates.
Energy Management System
Energy management in accordance with the DIN EN ISO 50001 standard was introduced in the first THIMM sites back in 2013. Since then, the production plants have been continuously improving their energy-related performance.
