Environmental Indicators

Note: Direct recycling was not recorded in financial year 2015/16, so there is no basis for data. The corresponding locations are marked with a "-".

Safety gloves (uvex safety gloves)
The increase in the proportion of CO2-neutral primary energy is down to the introduction of green gas in January 2017.

As it is not possible to separate the waste at the moment, it is stored at uvex Arbeitsschutz (Fürth site).

Safety footwear (uvex safety Cagi)
The savings in primary energy consumption can primarily be attributed to more efficient control of building heating.

Ear protection (Swedsafe)
SwedSafe is heated by a heat pump with heat exchanger, so no primary energy is required.

Safety goggles and helmets (uvex Kunshan)
Kunshan is heated by electrically powered boilers, so no primary energy is required. At the Kunshan plant, key figures have only been documented since the 2016/17 financial year, so no values can be specified for the previous financial years.

Ski goggles and eyewear (uvex sports CR)
The reduction in the proportion of direct recycling in the 2017/18 financial year is due to the waste disposal crisis in the Czech Republic. No refuse collectors could be found to remove the waste that could have largely been directly recycled.
