Sustainability and environmental protection declaration

Rempp Küchen products are manufactured in accordance with the applicable legal environmental standards. When it comes to development, material procurement and production, sustainability is not just a buzzword at Rempp; in all areas, emphasis is placed on manufacturing products with a long service life.

Our employees are sensitised to handle natural resources with the utmost care when selecting, processing and disposing of materials.

Features that characterise Rempp’s environmental thinking

  1. Production site

    All Rempp kitchen furniture is manufactured exclusively at the Wildberg site in the Black Forest. Long-standing, highly qualified employees guarantee consistently good quality. The use of state-of-the-art machine technology makes it possible to produce kitchens with a good price-performance ratio.
  2. Delivery routes

    All our main suppliers produce our vendor parts in Europe in accordance with the applicable environmental protection regulations. The majority of the materials used in Rempp kitchens come from long-standing suppliers in our region less than 300 kilometres away, thus avoiding long, environmentally damaging delivery routes worldwide.
  3. Occupational safety and environmental protection

    Our workplaces are regularly inspected with regard to occupational safety and the applicable environmental standards. Our employees are required to use the materials used sparingly and responsibly.
  4. Ecological heat generation

    We generate 100% of the heat for our production buildings from our own production waste. We do not use fossil fuels. Our exhaust gas filter technology for the heating system is equipped in accordance with current testing standards.
  5. Solar power for own use

    We use over 2/3 of the solar power we generate ourselves, which reduces the burden on the public power grid. With the solar power system, Rempp Küchen covers around 40% of the electricity required to produce our kitchens. 
  6. Green lung

    The flat roofs of our company buildings are extensively greened. The plants bind fine dust from the air and the green roofs serve as a buffer for rainwater run-off and as a natural air conditioning system. The unbuilt open spaces on the company premises with meadows, fruit and fruit trees are an important contribution to biodiversity, whereby Rempp Küchen contributes to the preservation of the “green lung” on the edge of the Black Forest.
  7. Environmentally friendly paint shop

    Our paint shop achieves a heat recovery efficiency of approx. 85% in the paint drying process using rotary heat exchangers. This means that heat that would be lost unused can be fed back into the production areas.
  8. Reduction of pollutants

    All edge banding at Rempp is made from PVC-free plastics (ABS / PP / PA), which means that no toxic chlorine is used in production. The emission of formaldehyde from kitchen chipboard is reduced in Rempp kitchen furniture through the use of specially manufactured E0.5 / Carb2 boards. By using E0.5 / Carb2 boards and by sealing all open edges, we achieve values well below the permissible standard.
  9. Packaging waste

    The furniture is packaged in accordance with the highest environmental protection standards. The cardboard packaging consists of 100% organic material and is made almost exclusively from waste paper. It is returned to the recycling system by certified waste disposal companies.
  10. Transport 

    Our kitchens are transported without our own fleet of vehicles. In co-operation with our in-house forwarding agents, we are able to provide economically and ecologically sensible logistics. Empty runs are avoided through optimised route planning.
  11. Wood recycling

    The proportion of recycled wood in the chipboard used for Rempp kitchens is over 50%. This reduces the deforestation of our forests and further promotes sustainable forestry.
  12. Second Life 

    Residual materials that are not suitable for production are used in “second life” in other industries as subordinate components, e.g. for frame construction. Production waste is sorted and sent separately for recycling. In addition, our wood waste is thermally utilised (see ecological heat generation).

Sustainability is successful in the long term

Since its foundation in 1930, Rempp has attached great importance to ensuring that investments in people and production facilities are characterised by the principle of sustainability. In addition, fair treatment of customers, suppliers and employees is an important basis for long-term success.

The principle of sustainability requires that many plans in our company are made over generations. Here the realisation from forestry applies: what is planted today will only yield the day after tomorrow – what yields today was already planted the day before yesterday.

With this in mind, the Rempp Küchen family business is keen to continue producing top-quality, long-lasting and ecologically responsible kitchens in the future.
