Reuse instead of single use


Awarded since 2021

ORNAMIN was certified as a climate-neutral company on 17.08.2022. Based on the CO2 footprint for 2021, 912 tonnes of CO2 were retroactively offset. In 2022, the amount to be offset was already less than 600 tonnes, because measures had already been implemented, such as the switch to green gas and electricity, expansion of the in-house photovoltaic system, replacement of old production machines with new, energy-saving machines, complete conversion of the lighting to modern, long-life LEDs and the ongoing conversion of the company fleet to hybrid and e-mobility.
Thus, the certification could be extended until 31.12.2023 and will be extended beyond, because further measures are planned and will be implemented continuously.
The CO2 emissions are compensated for by investing in recognised climate protection projects that support the UN sustainability goals of Agenda 2023. These projects include the energy supply in the Indian state of Uttaranchal with sustainable energy generation through a run-of-river power plant.

In addition, ORNAMIN can now count itself among the members of the climate initiative "Gemeinsam Klimaneutral 2030" (Together Climate Neutral 2030) of the IHK Ostwestfalen zu Bielefeld and the IHK Lippe zu Detmold, as well as the economy of OWL. They want to show that the business community is certainly able and willing to set a good example in climate protection. "After the certificate is before the improved certificate," says Managing Director Dr Holger von der Emde in this regard. "We are always working on becoming even more sustainable."

This way, the durable reusable cups and bowls become a constant companion in everyday life, which are not only easy on the wallet, but also help the environment and avoid waste.

All machines are cooled in a closed cooling circuit system with well water. This enables a large saving of valuable drinking water during production. When selecting new machines, attention is paid to the highest possible energy efficiency and user-friendliness. CO2 limits for company vehicles are bindingly regulated in the company manual. Vehicles with natural gas or hybrid drive are also used.

To optimise and improve energy efficiency, ORNAMIN uses an energy management system that is regularly audited externally. Energy savings also result from the use of machine waste heat, the photovoltaic system and the low processing temperatures of thermoplastic plastics. These are only approx. 200 °C. For comparison: glass is processed at approx. 800 °C and porcelain even at over 1,000 °C.


By participating in the dual system, ORNAMIN makes a valuable contribution to climate protection. By recycling sales packaging, ORNAMIN has saved a correspondingly large amount of CO2 in various areas in 2020, filtering 2,974 m² of forest out of the air in one year.

Loyal to location out of conviction: From development to production and distribution, all our processes take place in Germany at our headquarters in Minden (Westphalia). This also applies to recycling: discarded products are returned to the production cycle in Minden and used for further processing for new products.


Recycling instead of throw away

Reusable products made of plastic are the sustainable alternative to disposable products. Due to their durability, they make a significant contribution preserve our environment and resources.
