Taking responsibility for nature and society
Awareness of our environment has increased in recent years. At CHRISTMANN + PFEIFER sustainability has always played a central role. As a company, we see ourselves as a role model with a responsibility to act sustainably and to take social responsibility. With the aim of protecting both the environment and future generations.
Responsible family business
The work C + P does is focused on people. As a privately-owned business with tradition, we build our success on sustainable relationships. We take responsibility by being conscious of society and the environment in our actions. Our employees are the basis for our business success, which is why we cater to their needs decently, fairly, and respectfully. Sustainable growth is just as important to us as the long-standing relationships we have with our customers. Thanks to our integrated and future-focused approach to work, our solutions are long-lasting and thus sustainably geared toward our customers’ needs.
Steel - recyclable material
For almost 100 years, we have based our work as a producer of furnishing and storage solutions on the recyclable material steel. Steel is an ecological material by nature and is 100% recyclable. Steel can be can be melted down over and over again without any loss in quality. In Germany almost half of all steel is manufactured from this “secondary raw material.” This reduces the amount of energy needed for production, and thus significantly minimizes the CO2 emissions. Energy is also saved in transport. As steel furniture is lighter than conventional wooden furniture, the energy requirements are significantly reduced.
Furniture items made from steel are particularly long-lasting commodities. A C + P locker, for example, is used for at least 30 to 40 years before being returned to the material cycle. The long-lasting durability of commodities is a statement against today’s throwaway society.
Environmental dipping paint procedure
C + P is the world’s first company to use a solvent-free dipping paint procedure in series production. The painting method is not only emission-free. —The solvent-free paint can also be processed at a lower current range. This makes it possible to save energy.
No packaging material
Thanks to its in-house logistics, C + P is able to deliver the majority of all orders pre-assembled and without packaging. This helps to considerably reduce unnecessary waste.
