Environmental and energy management Our contribution to a responsible approach to our planet.

More than just a marketing promise! We put our money where our mouth is by protecting the environment, conserving resources and implementing efficient energy management.

Stakeholder involvement at TQ

Stakeholder involvement

To implement this approach effectively, we work closely with our customers, suppliers and other stakeholders and regularly identify relevant environmental aspects and their impact. This is precisely the focus of our energy planning. By evaluating the requirements and results, we derive suitable energy targets and measures for the sustainable improvement of our environmental performance and energy performance.

Ongoing monitoring of requirements at TQ

Ongoing monitoring of requirements

Trust is good, verification is better! We monitor the environmental and energy aspects of our integrated management system through regular audits and reviews of the applicable obligations. This is how we ensure compliance at all times.

Education and training

We actively involve all employees in environmental protection and resource conservation through ongoing training and further education. This supports implementation in day-to-day business.


An accredited certification agency verifies our high environmental standards as well as all the effectiveness of the measures we plan and implement. TQ has been certified according to the environmental management standard ISO 14001 since 2002, and according to the energy management standard ISO 50001 since 2018. In addition, TQ participates in the Bavarian Environmental Pact for sustainable growth combined with environmental and climate protection.

Environmental protection and energy management in action

We strive to make careful use of natural resources, to develop environmentally friendly products and to continuously improve environmental conservation and energy efficiency in our buildings and means of production. Our commitment is also evident in our sustainable handling of waste and recycling efforts.

81 percent less CO2 emission since 2016

How we reduced our carbon footprint.

We have reduced our CO2 emissions by more than three quarters since 2016. And we have done so with sales growth. We want to show that economic success and climate protection cannot exclude each other but can promote each other. We are pleased that our efforts over a relatively long period of time are showing these clear results. Nevertheless, this applies to us as well as to the company as a whole: We are always looking for a way to improve even further.
