100% renewable energies
maxon handles resources and the environment with care.
All employees of maxon are constantly made aware of their ecological responsibility and
contribute to continuously improving the environmental performance of the company: Unnecessary
emissions are avoided; unavoidable emissions are reduced to a minimum.
The products of maxon make an important contribution to active climate protection. Through the
development of drive systems with an efficiency of more than 90%, the maxon technology contributes
to responsible handling of natural resources.
Within the framework of its environmental management system, based on the ISO 14001:2004 environmental standard, maxon invests in renewable energies: Photovoltaic systems are in use both at the headquarters in Switzerland and at the production site in Germany. These systems are part of a long list of measures that are consistently implemented within the maxon group.
This includes the use of two groundwater wells that provide most of the energy required for heating, cooling, and ventilation. Process and exhaust heat is also used. Our electrical power needs at the headquarters in Sachseln are covered 100% from renewable sources – 92% from water, 8% from photovoltaics.
