Our three pillars of sustainability

At RAUMEDIC, sustainability is more than a goal—it's a guiding principle. Our holistic approach revolves around three pillars: ecology, economy, and social responsibility. By integrating these elements, we strive to achieve a balanced and sustainable future.

Our dedication to these principles has been recognized with the prestigious EcoVadis Silver label, highlighting our commitment to sustainable practices across all facets of our business.

"For us, sustainable action is not a trend, it is a fundamental conviction of our company and one of the most important drivers of future innovation. Therefore, we see it as our task, together with our customers, to act in a way that conserves resources, protects the environment and is socially committed to future generations."

Stefan Seuferling, CEO RAUMEDIC AG


Carbon Footprint Reduction: Creating Sustainable Value – for the Planet and our Customers 

In the age of sustainability, carbon footprint reduction is not merely a moral activity for keeping the planet healthy for all future generations. It is also prerequisite for good business. 

RAUMEDIC offers footprint optimized, sustainable polymeric components for medical and pharmaceutical components and applications. 

Our approach is largely based on two pillars: Using sustainable materials to replace fossil materials and generating renewable energy through RAUMEDIC-owned biomass and solar energy systems at our headquarters.

1. Sustainable Materials, Reduced Carbon Footprint

We prioritize the development and use of sustainable materials to minimize environmental impact and reduce product carbon footprints. By integrating bio-based and bio-circular polymers into our material portfolio, we offer more sustainable alternatives to conventional plastics – therefore more sustainable solutions for our products.

ISCC PLUS Materials

We manufacture chemically identical (!) components with ISCC PLUS materials (drop-in biopolymers) – and replace your existing fossil-based components.

Green Product Development

RAUMEDIC’s materials experts will also seek novel biopolymers to develop biopolymeric products that fit the purpose of your application.

2. Producing renewable energy locally and mitigating energy risks

By generating our own renewable energy from sustainable sources, customers don’t just benefit from reduced emissions in their supply chain. More than that, diversified energy production enhances resilience by stabilizing energy costs and reducing reliance on external energy sources, ensuring consistent and sustainable energy supply even in fluctuating market conditions.

On-site Energy Center

Our biomass heating plant (under construction) provides supply security through regional partnerships, long-term price stability, and an annual reduction of approximately 1,800 tons of CO2 emissions. This is equivalent to the yearly emissions of about 41 four-person households.

Solar Energy Production

With the additional installation of 2,500+ solar panels on the roof of one of the production buildings, approximately 880,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity can be generated annually, which is roughly equivalent to the yearly consumption of 220 four-person households.


Active Energy Management for Sustainable Growth

Our economic sustainability is underpinned by a focus on active energy management. We leverage our advanced technologies and deep expertise to enhance eciciency and drive sustainable growth, ensuring our operations are both economically and environmentally responsible.

Sustainable use of our technologies and competencies

By combining the latest energy efficient processes for the processing of plastics with our expertise in mold making and assembly, we ensure efficiency and effectiveness in the production of complex plastic components. In doing so, we can draw on over 70 years of experience.

Systematic energy management according to ISO 50001

By implementing sustainable energy management systems per DIN EN ISO 50001, we enhance environmental and climate protection. Continuous improvements in production and equipment have optimized our energy use, saving 5.8 million kWh since implementation, highlighting our commitment to sustainability.

Sustainable growth

RAUMEDIC as a family business, does not focus on short-term profits, but on sustainable, profitable growth.
