We can only survive in a sound environment. Our mining activities substantially interfere with the natural environment that surrounds us. Hence, the sustainable development of our group of companies requires well-balanced consideration of the three dimensions
- economic performance
- social responsibility
- effective environmental protection
Integrating mining facilities into the environment and restoring former extraction areas to an ecologically sound state is a matter of course in our modern society and an obligation for our company.
In order to live up to these aspirations, Stephan Schmidt KG has been certified according to the Environmental Management Scheme DIN EN ISO 14001:2015 since 2017. The next step will be the certification of the facilities of the subsidiary Marx Bergbau GmbH & Co. KG.
In addition, in December 2017 a framework agreement on water pollution control was concluded via the industry association BKRI with the Land Rhineland-Palatinate.
