ProPress GmbH

A pressing engagement. With the future – with ProPress.

Mindful of people and nature – fast in product development and innovation

Our pursuit of success is guided by the imperatives of sustainability. Sustainable success is characterised by the fact that it is achieved in accordance with the needs of our customers and society as a whole. This is why we have also consistently taken ecological aspects into account ever since the foundation of the company in order to achieve our targets.


In order to achieve sustainable goals under environmentally sound and fair conditions, it is necessary – in a globalised economy with supply chains spanning the world – to work together with all stakeholders in different industries.
We have set out on this journey and are looking forward to a sustainable future.


DIN EN ISO 14001: certified as a matter of conviction

Confirmation of our sustainable environmental management and demonstration of our conscientious approach to natural resources.


Making optimum use of resources – reducing waste

Besides the ecological aspect, resource efficiency and optimised waste management mean lower costs for the company. We have already implemented the following projects and measures, and more are planned.


We are reducing our energy consumption

  • We have converted all our lighting systems throughout over 4,000 m2 of office and hall space to LEDs.
  • All the offices and changing rooms are heated and provided with hot water by a compressed air system with heat exchangers.

All our materials are recyclable

We only use high-grade, recyclable materials for our products. In this way, we ensure that valuable resources can be reused and waste can be made available to production systems again as secondary raw materials. In this way, we follow the cradle-to-cradle approach.


Accepting responsibility for mankind and the environment

  • The zinc plating of our products does not contain any chromium, which is one of the reasons why we are allowed to distribute them in California without special labelling, even under the particularly strict California Proposition 65 regulation.
  • We use oil-free cooling lubricant without any hazardous substances for our machines.

Our waste disposal system is in line with DIN EN ISO 14001

Our waste management system meets all the requirements that our DIN ISO 14001 certification places on environmental management. We strictly separate waste and scrap. This keeps negative environmental impact to a minimum.


We use green electricity

We obtain 100% of our electricity from renewable energy sources and are thus making our contribution to the energy transition.


We frequently have our sustainability assessed transparently

The EcoVadis sustainability ranking assesses companies on the basis of their environmental and social practices. EcoVadis reviews categories such as environmental impact, working conditions, ethics and sustainable procurement. Companies receive points based on their performance in these areas.

At ProPress GmbH, we are proud not only to offer first-class products, but also to make our contribution to sustainability. This rating system not only evaluates our company, but also paves the way for a better future – both for us as a company and for society as a whole.

What this means for us: our good performance in the EcoVadis ranking strengthens our reputation as a responsible company. Customers who care about sustainability find in us a strong partner who shares their values. The ranking also helps us to optimise our processes and work even more efficiently.

Our responsibility to society: through our commitment to the sustainability ranking, we make a positive impact on the environment. We make working conditions fairer and support our community. Our ambition is not only to grow for ourselves, but also to promote sustainable change in the economy. We see ourselves as a role model for other companies that have also set themselves the goal of sustainable practices.

Together for a better future: our participation in the EcoVadis sustainability ranking is more than just an award. It is a commitment to protect and improve our world for future generations. By being transparent about our efforts, we inspire others to work towards sustainability as well.

Because together we can create a more sustainable and just future.

„Acting responsibly towards our employees and the general public is what distinguishes us as a family business. In doing so, we reconcile economic and ecological requirements. Together, we bear the responsibility for the company, the employees and the respectful treatment of our environment.“
