Where sustainability is practiced at all levels
Since 1900, Kalkfabrik Netstal AG (KFN) fosters the use of white lime as a natural product. Along with building up our company, we accepted our responsibility towards the environment and society. Today, KFN is an innovative company. It constantly decreases its CO2 emissions per ton, finds new uses for environmentally friendly lime, and is an active corporate citizen, deeply rooted in the region. It has far-reaching recultivation projects, thrilling and well-paid jobs and is a sponsor of local life. In our efforts for sustainability, we take the Paris Climate Agreement as a guide and are – typical for us – one step ahead.
KFN takes a holistic view to sustainability
While lowering our CO2 emissions is an important part of KFN’s sustainability efforts, they go far beyond that. We assume responsibility in the ecological, but also in the social and economic fields. We not only constantly lower our CO2 emissions per ton, we also invest in our energy and water cycles and in environment protection, actively care for the health of our employees, look for a solid financing structure of our company and support the local infrastructure. Details for all these topics and many more concerning our activities can be found here in the web as well as in our downloads section.
Following the CO2-Roadmap to a climate positive industry
Reducing CO2 is a central factor to the sustainability concept of KFN. Being a member of the Association of German Lime Producers (Bundesverband der Deutschen Kalkindustrie, BVK) KFN is following the CO2-Roadmap Lime Industry 2050. It shows how the lime industry can develop via climate neutral production until 2050 to a climate positive industry. Central for this effort are progressive production techniques, innovative product uses and focused research.
