At Koch-Chemie, sustainability is more than just a collection of environmentally friendly products: It is an integral part of our DNA and embedded in many different processes along the KCX value chain. Our understanding of sustainability emerged from the cooperation and ideas of all Koch-Chemie employees as part of six elementary KCX values that significantly influence us in our daily and future-relevant decisions. We think "green" — in raw materials, in manufacturing and disposal processes, in the use of our products as well as in all other supporting processes within our everyday business.

Honesty with Certificate and Label.

We have made a conscious decision to use independent, already established labels and certifications and not to develop our own test marks. Behind the external labels that distinguish our products are strict, transparent guidelines with maximum credibility and significance, as our processes and goals are regularly reviewed.

Environmental Goals with DIN EN ISO 14001.

As early as 1989, with the launch of the Star range, Koch-Chemie took a pioneering role in sustainability and launched products on the market in accordance with DIN standard 14001. Since then, environmental goals and the well-being of this very nature have been firmly rooted in our corporate philosophy and our entire environmental management system has been certified according to DIN EN ISO 14001.
