Environment & Responsibility

Sustainable and resource-saving business management is a long-term success factor and innovation driver for us. For this reason, we are committed to the health and safety of our employees and ensuring the protection of our environment. This is about creating the right balance between people, environment and company interests. 

Environmental protection

Because it is only when business is conducted economically that ecological and social responsibility can be demonstrated. Our mission is to link the best possible product quality with effective environmental protection in addition to corporate and social responsibility. Also in the introduction of new production processes and process technologies as well as with all other investments, we consistently observe the environmental aspect and focus on renewable raw materials, which ensure efficient energy supply. JULABO only uses materials which meet the statutory requirements of the “RoHS” EC Directive. 

F-Gas Regulation

Since 2015 the current EU regulation on fluorinated greenhouse gases applies. This includes the gradual reduction of quantities of partly fluorinated hydrocarbons available on the market until 2030. 

The F-Gas Regulation serves for the control of systems, which contain specific greenhouse-inducing hydrofluorocarbons (HFC) as a refrigerant. The regulation sets out that systems, for example air-conditioning systems and cooling devices as well as fire extinguishers, must be inspected for leak tightness with regard to certain gases at regular intervals by certified personnel, then logged. For these F-gases the environmental compatibility is determined based on the ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential) and the GWP (Global Warming Potential).

From 2020 the next stage of the F-Gas Regulation applies. Temperature control instruments are now classified as stationary refrigeration systems and may have a GWP of 2500 maximum. This means new requirements in terms of the inspection and documentation obligation. Currently all JULABO devices meet the directives of the F-Gas Regulation and actively contribute to future-proof temperature control.
