Trotec & the Environment – Committed to Environmental Protection

“We Act Responsibly”

The Trodat Group – so ultimately Trotec – is setting a good example in the field of environmental protection. As early as 1993, when nobody knew about the ‘Kyoto Protocol’, and strict Austrian environmental laws had not yet reached their current standard, the Trodat Group had already implemented many measures to ensure better energy usage and sustainability.

Today, we pay a great deal of attention to the efficient use of energy and careful handling of raw materials. Our laser technology, as well as the latest filter technology, allows us to offer customers various ways of protecting the environment by avoiding the use of chemicals in engraving, cutting and marking.

In 2008, we were awarded EN ISO14001:2004 certification
