filtral milestones sustainability

Sustainability is not something you decide on today and implement completely tomorrow. Sustainability means setting out on a journey. As a company, we are aware that we have an impact on our environment and the climate. Just as we bear responsibility for our employees, for our customers, for our environment.

That is why we have promised – or even more so, Filtral has made a commitment: We are making our activities more and more sustainable.

Sustainability is an ongoing process in which we are constantly learning and continuously developing. Join us on our path, from 2008 to the future ...
