Environmental protection & sustainability at FLEX

We take responsibility

Environmental protection & sustainability

Our vision

Climate change, pollution, scarcity of resources and diseases caused by pollutants - as a manufacturer of professional power tools, we are particularly aware of the many and varied impacts that manufacturing industry has on the environment. And we take responsibility for this.

For us, complying with legal requirements is only the first step. We see ourselves as a company that always wants more, thinks ahead and sets its own standards. That's why we've been continuously setting ourselves new goals for years, especially in terms of environmental protection, and why we're constantly challenging ourselves anew. Reducing our environmental impact as much as possible all along the value chain is our primary goal.

Our contribution

Resource conservation

  • Environmental protection & repair service at FLEX


    Our efficient service centre offers professional repair of faulty products. In this way we save valuable resources and extend the service life of our products by additional valuable years.

  • Environmental protection & durability at FLEX


    Our products are specifically designed with durability in mind. This is how we reduce production volume and conserve both resources and the environment. For shipping, we make sure that we use the minimum amount of packaging material possible, and wherever possible we use cardboard for packaging.

  • Environmental protection & raw materials at FLEX

    Raw materials

    Our raw materials are carefully selected and checked for any potential risk to the environment. In our production and for packaging, we only use raw materials that meet our evaluation criteria and requirements.

Our path towards climate neutrality

100% green gas

  • By purchasing climate-neutral green gas, we're taking the first step towards climate neutrality.

  • We also support global climate protection projects and help to reduce CO2 emissions.

100% green electricity

  • The purchase of climate-neutral green electricity is another element of our efforts to actively live and drive forward environmental protection.

  • Through the climate-neutral production of electricity, we save approximately 279 tonnes of climate-damaging CO2 emissions.

Powerful against pollutants

Umweltschutz, Gesundheit und Sicherheit auf der Baustelle

For us, responsibility for the environment and protecting health and safety on the construction site and in the workshop go hand in hand:

With our air purifiers, we offer the perfect solution for a better indoor climate. The air purifiers combat virus-laden aerosols, bacteria, dusts and pollen to massively reduce the pollutant load in rooms. 99.995% of pollutant particles are retained with our HEPA H14 filter.

In addition, FLEX has been a leader for years in developing and improving extraction systems for its products to effectively counteract dust and fine dust. The latest generation will arrive on the market next year. These will be intelligent, using sensors to analyse changes in the air and to react and counteract accordingly.

Note on disposal

Old electrical equipment and batteries contain valuable resources that can be reused if disposed of properly. This helps preserve the environment and resources. Not only that, it also helps to prevent potential pollutants in old electrical appliances from finding their way into the ecosystem. Proper disposal of old appliances and batteries protects not only the environment but also your own health.
