Sustainability = Future

Sustainability is one of the major key issues of our time. For Lorünser Austria, knowledge of its environmental impact is an important concern. This also includes raw materials and materials: Over 90 percent of Lorünser products are made from primary aluminium.

Energy efficient and long service life

In addition to an energy-efficient production process, aluminium products are known particularly for their long life cycle and virtually unlimited recyclability. Aluminium is considered weather- and corrosion-resistant as well as durable for many decades when used in products and, with a recycling rate of around 96 percent, it can be reused many times without any loss of quality.

In addition to the existing ISO certifications 14001 (environmental management), 9001 (quality management) and 45001 (occupational health & safety), the Knill Group will have audited sustainability reports from the 2023 reporting year. As part of the corporate group, Lorünser Austria is aware of its responsibility to act sustainably in many areas and thus complies with the new EU directive on sustainability reporting (Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive, CSRD).
