Facts + Figures 2018

Schmidt + Clemens Group 2018

Fortunately, the S+C Group was again able to close the 2018 financial year with a satisfactorily positive balance sheet, despite difficult political and economic conditions and constraints.The headquarters in Lindlar-Kaiserau made a special mark by once again succeeding in achieving a positive result. As expected, the service area opened up new perspectives: A major order in the Middle East was booked.

Taking into account the lower margins and lower capacity utilisation of the works compared to 2017, as a result of the global sanctions policy, the achievements can be rated as considerable. They were achieved through consistent implementation of the existing strategic goals as well as through the improvement of process and production processes, cost savings, quality improvement and far-sighted personnel policy.

Environment Management

Environment ManagementPolicies at S+C

As a company producing steel, S+C is under special obligations in relation to environmental protection, in particular in regard to dust, noise and sewage pollution. An additional focus consists of measures to save energy. The components of our environmental policy are crucially determined by operational conditions, effects on the environment and by the legal parameters that apply to us.

On the basis of its results, management will evaluate how appropriate and effective our management system has been in regard to complying with our environmental policy and, in case of shortcomings, will introduce suitable corrective measures.

The foundations of our environmental policy

We currently meet statutory environmental protection standards. We have made it our objective to ensure the standard that has already been achieved and to advance it further under rapidly evolving market conditions.

Achieving this has prompted us to introduce an environmental management system and to define our environmental policy more concretely with the following guiding principles:


Guiding principles in our environmental policy and commitment

  • Compliance with environmental regulations that apply to us.
  • Development of environmental objectives.
  • Defining and carrying out environmental programmes.
  • Aligning our environmental protection activities primarily to avoiding or reducing environmental pollution.
  • New plants, processes and materials must be tested in advance for their environmental friendliness.
  • Our employees' sense of responsibility for the environment must be encouraged by specific information and training.
  • Outside firms performing work on our premises in Kaiserau, and our tenants as well, must be put under an obligation to apply our environmental protection standards.
  • We should also strive to encourage strong emphasis on environmental protection on the part of our suppliers.
  • For newly developed products, our customers must be informed about those aspects that are relevant for the environment and about options for recycling.
  • Open dialogue must be conducted with the public and with public authorities.
  • Our environmental management system must be regularly tested with standardised procedures to see that it is applied and meets the requirements.
