Socially responsible business practice

Environmental protection
Environmental protection is an issue that affects us all. As a user of metallic chemicals, CZL Tilburg naturally feels it has a particular obligation in this regard. The 50 well-qualified employees of CZL Tilburg are very careful in the way they use and handle chemicals, raw materials and energy. Whereas many other companies regard government policy on working conditions and the environment as a burden, for CZL Tilburg the opposite is true. Because we are always looking for a profit from our investment in environmentally responsible, sustainable business. These two things are not mutually exclusive. Our long-term employees, low levels of absenteeism, water management and constant development are good evidence of this. As an employer and as a metal finisher, we are always aware of our great responsibility. We therefore make an important contribution to socially responsible business practice, a contribution for which we were recognised with an award from the Tilburg municipality in 2008.

Minimal use of chemicals
CZL Tilburg removes most of the contaminants from its waste water using the worldwide-patented ELFLOX system. Minimum quantities of chemicals are used, with maximum recycling of water.

Cost savings
CZL Tilburg anticipates on the standards of the future. Socially responsible and sustainable business practice leads to an immediate saving on costs in combination with a head start in knowledge and technology. This too is socially responsible business practice.
