At TRIPS we have been pursuing environmental goals and working in the most sustainable way since our founding. We follow this approach out of conviction, the maintenance of our quality, and the satisfaction of our customers.

All of this is demonstarated via our energy management department, which not only works for our customers but also internally documents and optimizes all energy consumption. Also, through our many activities, that permanently improve work processes along the value chain, design them sustainably, and use energy and raw materials in a conscious, climate-friendly manner.

Our quality management reviews and controls all of our measures to ensure that they are SMART – specific, measurable, accepted, realistic, and terminable.

All these efforts of TRIPS are confirmed by the ISO 14001 certification from TÜV SÜD Management Service GmbH. As a globally recognized basis for environmental management systems, ISO 14001 has been defining any aspects for continuous improvement of environmental performance in companies since 1996. It defines the establishment, implementation, maintenance, and continuous improvement of an environmental management system.

The primary goal of ISO 14001 certification is to promote environmental protection, reduce environmental impacts, and thus properly implement environmental goals – in harmony with economic, social, and political requirements. This so-called “High Level Structure” (HLS) applies to all new management system standards according to an ISO resolution.

Energy and Load Management

Renewable energies are not the sole focus of our automation projects for TRIPS. They are also the objects of corporate commitment to environmental protection. We avoid around 27 tons of carbon dioxide emissions every year through our photovoltaic system alone, which has been in operation since 2010 to generate electricity. 3,000 modules with a generator rated power of 301.18 kW peak on an area of 2,880 m² have been feeding up to 270,000 kWh into the grid annually since then.

In addition, we operate a combined heat and power plant, which alone provides 5.5kW of electrical and 11kW of thermal power. In addition, the approximately 6,500 m² of office and production space is heated with a wood chip system, which has a thermal output of 150 kW.
