ChemCon GmbH is committed to the following principles:

  • Ethical and sustainable sourcing of raw materials for drug manufacturing
  • Implementation of fair labor practices and compliance with labor laws
  • Reduction of waste and environmental impact by implementing sustainable practices in the manufacturing process

We have been familiar with the topic of sustainability for many years and have already achieved some successes, e.g. through:

  • Photovoltaic system for power supply since 2010 with > 25.000 kW/year
  • Use of district heating in ChemCon headquarters
  • Ecovadis silver partner since 2021
  • Special offers for employees: health program, bike leasing, subsidized tickets for public transport

Photovoltaic system at ChemCon GmbH

For more than 10 years, ChemCon has been supplied with electricity by a photovoltaic system on the branch office used as office and warehouse in Freiburg i. Br. The system was connected to the grid in January 2010 and has been generating electricity that is fed into the grid ever since. The photovoltaic system is designed as a 25.2 kW peak system. As of March 2023, the average amount of electricity generated is as follows:

    Average per day: 76.70 kWh
    Average per month: 2.361,80 kWh
    Average per year: 27.994,87 kWh

    Total output from Jan. 15, 2010 (start of recording) to March 31, 2023: 369,839 kWh.

Assuming that one kWh means approximately the saving of 627 g CO2, approx. 232 t CO2 were saved during the operation of the ChemCon photovoltaic system.
