Kaiser & Kühne Freizeitgeräte GmbH acts sustainably – for over 30 years now
Since Kaiser & Kühne Freizeitgeräte GmbH has been a successful medium-sized company for over 30 years, we attach great importance to the preservation of jobs.
General ethical principles in corporate management and procurement policy have become increasingly important in recent years. A development that we take very seriously. The responsible use of raw materials has been a major concern of our company since its foundation. Instead of short-term orientation of our company exclusively on quarterly sales and profit figures, without regard to people and nature, we consciously focus on our social and ecological responsibility as a building block of long-term economic success. Our relationship with employees, suppliers and customers is characterized by esteem, respect and responsibility. Our actions are based on sustainability in a generational thinking. We take our social responsibility seriously. Our core requirements are described below.
Social responsibility in the procurement of raw materials
The basis of our products are high-quality raw materials that meet our strict quality standards. It is very important to us to work towards good labor, social and environmental standards in our supply chain, which extends to various regions of the world. The objective of Kaiser & Kühne Freizeitgeräte GmbH is to ensure that the standards that are considered responsible and ethically correct can be found throughout the entire supply chain. The following principles are important to us:
This guiding principle is an obligation and challenge for us. The company Kaiser & Kühne Freizeitgeräte has a long tradition of manufacturing high-quality and durable play equipment. Our vision is to give children a maximum of playing fun with the best possible safety. Many ideas and improvements are the result of observations on our company’s own playground or suggestions from our employees, who themselves have children or even grandchildren. We want to encourage the individual creativity of the children and thus contribute to the best possible development. The next generations are the future of all of us.
In our company, Kaiser & Kühne Freizeitgeräte GmbH, environmental protection is an important part of our corporate policy. We are aware that our activities influence the environment. We see it as our duty to reduce the impact on the environment to the possible minimum within the scope of our economic and technical possibilities by means of well thought-out processes. In order to adequately meet our responsibility in dealing with the environment and resources, we have established environmental guidelines, see “UMW-02-01-V1 Environmental Policy + Environmental Guidelines”. Based on our joint responsibility towards man and the environment, we have set ourselves the goal of reconciling profitable production and environmental precautions by improving environmental performance and avoiding or reducing environmental pollution wherever this is technically and organizationally possible and economically viable. In doing so, it is a matter of course for us to comply with the legal, official regulations and other environmental interests as well as the requirements we have set ourselves for environmental protection. We therefore regard the legal and official requirements as a minimum. We endeavour to reduce or completely avoid the influence on the environment and other interested parties as far as possible.
Every employee is involved in our environmental management system and has the right and duty to work towards eliminating circumstances that cause unnecessary environmental pollution. By means of information and training, we promote environmentally conscious behavior of our employees inside and outside the company. The continuous improvement of our environmental performance is a medium and long-term prerequisite and an important contribution to the protection of the environment. A trouble-free organization, modern management methods and the current state of environmental technology provide the necessary framework for this. Managers are obliged to apply the management practices applicable in their area of responsibility, to constantly monitor their effectiveness and to adapt them to the latest knowledge and requirements. Our company operates and implements an environmental management system based on the identified normative, legal and internal requirements/specifications, maintains it and constantly improves its effectiveness.
By means of this declaration, the management obliges all employees to carry out their activities in accordance with the descriptions of this policy statement and the subsequent work instructions in order to ensure that the environmental specifications meet the specified and self-imposed requirements and the expectations of the company.
Environmental protection is an important part of the corporate policy of Kaiser & Kühne Freizeitgeräte GmbH and is directed at all employees in all areas, with the aim of continuously improving corporate environmental protection and environmental performance. This goal is achieved by the economical use of all resources, the measurable reduction of emissions, e.g. consumption of water, electricity, gas, etc.
All employees are required to observe the following environmental guidelines of the company in their daily work. They also have the duty to point out recognized dangers, but also the right to eliminate potential dangers. In this way, all employees cooperate equally responsibly in the daily implementation of environmental protection measures. The company and all its employees are committed to protecting the environment and preventing avoidable environmental pollution. The protection of the environment is considered a binding obligation. The same applies to the continuous improvement of the environmental management system to increase environmental performance.
The company provides all necessary means to fulfill our environmental guidelines and to enforce our environmental policy.
The company Kaiser & Kühne Freizeitgeräte GmbH was founded in March 1988, initially based in Drakenburg, near Nienburg/Weser. In 1993 the company headquarters was moved to Eystrup/Weser as part of the expansion and the associated new factory building.
The company is engaged in the development and production of playground equipment and large playgrounds for the play and leisure sector, especially for cities and municipalities, kindergartens and schools as well as for amusement parks.
In the planning and design of large playgrounds and towers, we draw on many years of experience gained from the realization of numerous projects in Germany and abroad.
Our towers represent impressive attractions in any playground landscape. They are individually designed according to your ideas – our program leaves nothing to be desired.
