Quality & Environment

Here the focus is on our employees, our products and the region.


One key aspect of our corporate strategy is a comprehensive approach to environmental protection and quality assurance for our products.

Our success as a company depends on the quality of our products, the services that our employees provide and the customer satisfaction that results from our approach.

Our environment

As one of the founding members of the first and second “Bavarian Environmental Agreement” we feel particularly committed to the principles of “Sustainable Economic Growth in the 21st century”. The main idea of this Agreement is to combine the efforts of the Bavarian state and the Bavarian industry in order to achieve a long lasting environmentally compatible economic development.

Through discussions with our customers, neighbors, employees, environmental associates and politicians we can offer responsible solutions. Together we will improve the conditions at our plant sites and increase the efficiency of our manufacturing processes. The involvement of our employees concerning environment, safety, health and quality matters is of highest importance.

The AlzChem Environment Statement shows what we have already achieved with regard to environmental protection, safety and quality. It refers to our environmental successes and also mentions fields we will improve in the future.

We want to be a responsible and profitable chemical company in Bavaria. Our employees, our products and the Upper Bavarian region are the focus of our activities. We embrace this challenge and address the issues of environment, safety, health and quality. Based on our integrated management system and through a continuous improvement of our processes and products we create the environment to achieve these goals.


Quality and Certificates

Our goal is to satisfy our customers because they are the prerequisite for the economic success of our company. Excellent quality, the best service and competitive pricing ensure the satisfaction of our customers. Based on our integrated management system and through a continuous improvement of our processes and products we create the environment to achieve these goals.

ISO 9001, 14001, 17025, EMAS (environment) and OHRIS (safety) certifications as well as numerous customer audits provide proof of our high quality standards.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

CSR means responsible behavior with respect to sustainable development.

The integration of social and ecological concerns into the operating activities plays an essential role, as well as the relationship to stakeholders, including employees, customers, investors and government.

Ecovadis assesses and rates suppliers concerning their CSR behavior already for several years on behalf of leading companies in the chemical industry. AlzChem managed to improve its rating continuously over the last years and was again awarded with a gold medal by Ecovadis in 2020 as in previous years.

AlzChem now belongs to the top 4% of suppliers rated by Ecovadis in the chemical industry.
