CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONS­IBILITY

WE DO SOCIAL.

Sustainable business is one of the Doerrenberg basic principles. Ecological compatibility, social justice and economic performance are closely linked to our strategy and the goals derived from it. Non-financial reporting is another opportunity to secure our future. We, as part of the supply chain, accept the responsibility to make our contribution to achieving climate goals and increasing company value.

In addition to efficient steel production the raw materials, the energy supply and the supply chains also need to be considered. Our smelting operations only use return scrap from external suppliers or from our operations. The use of these climate-neutral raw materials is the most environmentally friendly way of producing steel. The electrical energy required for this is 100% green electricity and therefore climate neutral because it comes from renewable sources. These are the basis for the low CO2 balance at our most energy-intensive production site in Ründeroth.

We work with selected and qualified suppliers, who must pass an inspection in accordance with the Supply Chain Due Diligence Act (LkSG), not only when it comes to raw material procurement. The entire supply chain for production and trade is viewed from a sustainable perspective. This is reflected in long-term business relationships. Our management systems according to ISO 14001 (environment) and ISO 50001 (energy) underpin this philosophy, offer reproducibility and allow us to grow with the demands placed on us and the environment.

SUSTAINABILITY

WE DO GREEN STEEL.

GREEN STEEL FROM DOERRENBERG


Environmental protection, resource-saving work and reduced energy consumption have shaped the way we work for decades. The use of return scrap, including from our own operations, represents an established closed-loop system. For our production sites, we obtain 100% climate-neutral electricity from renewable sources. We melt our steels at our central location in Ründeroth using the low-CO2 electric steel route. These framework conditions enable us to complete these production processes with a favorable CO2 balance.
 

 

WE DO TRANSPARENCY.

SUSTAINIBILITY RATING


The external assessment of sustainability underlines our commitment to meeting the requirements in a results-oriented manner. Globally recognized sustainability levels provide transparency for our business partners.
 

ENVORIA

Recording, management, target comparison and reporting of the sustainability areas of ESG reporting, EU taxonomy, emissions management and supply chain.

MANAGEMENT­TOOLS

WE DO CERTIFIED EXCELLENCE.

THREE DECADES OF MANAGEMENT TOOLS

The management systems at Doerrenberg and the management policy formulated are the source for maintaining the usual high-quality standards, serve sustainability and offer the opportunity for constant improvements. These are some of the foundations for a trusting collaboration.

Through recurring monitoring and recertification audits, we underpin the consistently high-quality standard as the basis for our products and services.
 

WE DO QUALITY.

QUALITY MANAGEMENT


For quality assurance of structures, processes and results, Doerrenberg obtained the first certification of the quality management system according to DIN EN ISO 9001 by TÜV Rheinland in 1995. The Pressure Equipment Directive 2014/68/EU and certification for welding activities in accordance with DIN EN ISO 384 are also part of our industry-related standards. 

 

WE DO ENVIROMENT.

ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT


An EMS was established at Doerrenberg for the first time under EMAS-VO in 1997. In 2000, this was replaced by the introduction of environmental management according to DIN EN ISO 14001 and certified by TÜV Nord. This is the basis for planning, implementing, controlling and improving operational environmental performance and target achievement.
 

WE DO THE FUTURE OF ENERGY.

ENERGY MANAGEMENT


Energy management according to DIN EN ISO 50001, certified by TÜV Nord in 2011, is the base for planning, implementing, controlling and improving our corporate claim to conserve resources.
