Environmental Protection at Koehler

No economy without Ecology

Our locations are close to people and the countryside, which means we have a special duty.

Conserving resources remains inextricably linked with our efforts to safeguard the future of our company.

The Koehler Paper produces more than 500,000 tons of specialty paper and board every year for global distribution. As an industrial company, we´re aware of our unique responsibility towards our customers, our employees, Society, and the Environment. Our operational guidelines are defined in Koehler polices and the Koehler guidelines and are binding for everyone.

Each and every human activity has an Impact on the environment. To ensure longterm economic growth and the well-being of people and society, the company and its employees need to promote efficient use of natural raw materials, environmental protection and management. The environment and profitability have equal status in our management system.  

At Koehler we don´t just talk about Environmental protection, we actually do something about it:

Ecolabel "Blue Angel"

"Blue Angle"

The “Blue Angel” is an ecolabel created by Germany’s Federal Ministry for the Environment. Criteria are developed by an independent jury on the basis of scientific principles and updated to reflect new findings. Products and services receive the label that, when viewed in their entirety, are particularly environmentally friendly and at the same time meet high standards of occupational health and safety and usability. Many of our ColorTech Paper products have been awarded the “Blue Angel” ecolabel and as a result, meet the demanding criteria. Papers and cardboard used for production in our Greiz facility are made from 100% secondary fibers.



The PEFC seal of quality stands for sustainable, careful, and responsible forest management. Only companies carrying this seal of quality may sell their wood or wood products as PEFC-certified.



The Forest Stewardship Council® sets standards for responsible forest management. A voluntary program, FSC® uses the power of the marketplace to protect forests for future generations.
