Plant ecology

EMS places great value on the most sustainable production possible:

  • EMS operates CO2-free at all locations worldwide.
  • In 2006 already, with the start-up of the biomass power plant at the production site in Domat/Ems, EMS achieved an 85% reduction in CO2 emissions.
  • Since 2020, the electricity supply at production and sales locations has been 100% CO2-neutral hydroelectricity.
  • EMS has reduced electricity consumption by 43% since 2001.
  • EMS has reduced water consumption by 61% since 2001.
  • EMS consequently follows its principles of waste management, prevention of air pollution as well as work and process safety. Further data in this respect can be found under Environmental Protection & Safety.

Product ecology

EMS vouches for sustainable business activities:

  • We consider it an ongoing task to continually improve processes and products.
  • Reduction of CO2 is the core of EMS' business model.
  • Through replacement of metal with our speciality plastic products up to 2/3 of the original component weight can be saved by our customers. This leads e.g. in automotive construction to significant reductions in weight and, therefore, in fuel consumption, which also allows a significant reduction in CO2 emissions to be achieved. Our weight-saving system solutions with special polymers enable customers to achieve an additional annual reduction of CO2 emissions corresponding to more than 100,000 flights from Zurich to New York.
  • Our plastic materials are used for thermal and photovoltaic solar panels, small wind turbines etc.
  • Our high-performance resins are used in the manufacture of rotors for wind power plants.
  • EMS products are not toxic.
  • EMS has developed a series of polyamide speciality products based on biological raw materials. Further information can be found here:
