Enterprises that can officially demonstrate that they make an active contribution to environmental and climate protection enjoy a competitive advantage already today. With the new sustainability certificate issued by Metallrecycler TSR itself, the company is making its customers more aware of efficient use of raw materials already now. The certificate is unique with regard to specialisation in ferrous scrap and non-ferrous metals.
The topic of sustainability is omnipresent in the metal-working industry as well: reserves of primary raw materials like iron ore are not unlimited, social standards in the countries producing these raw materials are frequently difficult to assess and processing of materials goes hand in hand with high energy consumption and carbon dioxide output. Recycling raw materials offers a wise alternative. “The conscientious use of resources plays a key role in the entire sector. The fact that we are now able to certify the sustainability of each of our customers clearly sets us off from our competitors,“ emphasises Olaf Pusch, head of Key Account Management at TSR. He considers the seal developed by the shareholder REMONDIS to be an especially good tool with which to secure the supply of valuable raw materials like metals and iron. Thanks to specialisation in 17 types of non-ferrous metals and iron scrap, the TSR sustainability certificate is unique in the market.
Recycling produces immeasurable positive effects on the environment and the climate. To determine this precisely, TSR uses a calculation tool based on scientific findings that was jointly developed with the independent Fraunhofer Institute for the Environment, Safety and Energy Technology – referred to as UMSICHT for short. It shows the savings on primary raw materials as well as energy and carbon dioxide tailored to individual companies. Every step in the cycle, such as transport, preliminary treatment and recycling, is taken into account in the overall equation.

With its sustainability certificate, TSR offers its customers a competitive advantage in their own business activities. “They receive a seal of quality with which they cultivate a positive image in the market and make themselves especially attractive for regular and potential new customers,“ Olaf Pusch remarks.
Sample certificate: Every customer of TSR can now order a sustainability certificate showing the positive impact on the environment in concrete figures. These are issued using the basis of a calculation method developed by ATZ/Fraunhofer Institute.
