For an on-going improvement of our environmental activities, we have introduced an environmental management system according to the following criteria laid out by Festool:
Environmentally responsible behavior is an essential part of our philosophy and we continually recognize that this contributes strongly to our long-term company success.
Our three company values; benefit-orientation, responsibility and innovation apply furthermore in relation to our environment:
ecology and the economy remain within a reasonable balance with another.
it also means that we abide by the law and take full responsibility for our products and activities.
means for us additionally, a continuous improvement of our products and activities using environmental measures. Our vision is to determine and to improve the ecological efficiency of our products and processes as well as to achieve a “waste-free production” by closing the recovered substance cycle.
The long life cycle of Festool tools conserves resources
The outstanding life cycle, the low wear and tear and the ability to repair our equipment are the best environmental protection. This naturally leads to a reduction of the amount of raw materials needed for production.
The Systainer saves on packing materials
In an effort to keep the landfills from overflowing into the heavens, virtually all devices from Festool are delivered in an environmentally friendly Systainer.
If a repair is needed, the tools are packed simply in the Systainer (which is approved by the German Post) and we have our logistical partner pick them up at your location. This saves you the time consuming task of packing up the device and the environment a great deal of unneeded trash in the form of packing material.
Environmentally responsible recycling for older machines
Our older equipment is recycled by using the most modern means available. When Festool devices have reached the end of their life cycle, they can be returned free of charge to the specialized dealer, the next public collection point or directly to us.
