Sustainability & Environment

CLEAN & GREEN SOLUTIONS

Sustainability is an integral part of the Buzil family tradition.

Family-owned for over a century, Buzil is currently run by one member of the fourth generation, Isabell Janoth, and Klaus Karl. The company‘s endeavour to reconcile ecological and economic objectives to the best of our abilities is deeply rooted in this long history. Our environmentally friendly Planta® product range is a direct outcome of this ethos.

However, Buzil‘s commitment to sustainability goes far beyond product development as such. As early as 2002, we received DIN ISO 14001 certification for our environmental management system. As a member of the Bavarian Environmental Alliance (Umweltpakt Bayern) since 1995, Buzil has made additional voluntary environmental commitments. Since 2011, Buzil has also been a DIAMOND member of the UAE Business Council for Sustainable Development (BCSD).

Respecting and protecting the environment is anchored in our company values and is an integral part of the guidelines that govern our daily actions. At Buzil, the duty to protect our environment involves the participation of all employees and is an important element of our training. As part of this training, we raise awareness of the importance of independent environmentally conscious behaviour at each workplace within the scope of employees' respective activities. 

We significantly reduce the consumption of resources by using concentrates in combination with dosing systems. Our containers, portioning and dosing aids, and mechanical and electronic pumps and dosing systems are aligned to customer needs and widely harmonised, making economical and ecological dosing possible. Fewer packaging materials and the resulting smaller transport volumes, as well as highly automated and efficient production processes, guarantee controlled consumption, support water and energy savings, and make a positive contribution to our carbon footprint. We see legal requirements as minimum requirements – and we beat these targets wherever possible. 

Acting responsibly to ensure user safety is a key element of our sustainability strategy, and the environmental information we provide is a crucial means of communication in this regard. This is used to calculate the precise waste water load for each product, based on the most meaningful indicators from waste water analysis. As a result, we offer our users a unique level of transparency. A high level of environmental compatibility is very important to us when selecting raw materials. Our effective development strategy means that we are constantly examining the raw materials we use with the aim of switching to more environmentally friendly alternatives, such as the use of renewable resources. Efficient training in both the product and its application, combined with proficient advice and support, ensure a sustainable, cost-efficient and high-quality result in day-to-day cleaning.
