"We want to do everything in order to create a clean and healthy working environment!" - A. Coppenrath
Coppenrath Feingebäck follows an active environmental policy that takes in all business sectors and all company employees. In addition to numerous measures in corporate environmental management, we place a special focus on the use of sustainably produced raw materials.
Here you get an insight into our environmental activities:
Energy management system
We keep an eye on an environmentally friendly and sustainable production, so we now also take internal measures to improve our energy balance through lower CO2 emissions continuously:
- Low consumption lighting systems indoor and outdoor (LED, presence detector)
- Use of earth energy (geothermal)
- Use of renewable energy (photovoltaic)
- Water-saving technology (heating & cooling, aerators, automatic start / stop function)
- Rainwater collection system
- Waste heat recovery
- Intelligent building (orientation of windows, ventilation, insulation, etc.)
Our employees are aware of the issue of energy saving and promoting awareness. We want to work together to identify potential for more optimization, so that we can remain a sustainable and successful future.
For the first time we have carried out in 2015 an audit of our energy management system and successfully passed it. The international standard DIN EN ISO 50001 has been around since 2011, and is the first globally accepted standard.
Paper cases - For the environment
To contribute to the sustainable development strategy of the family bakery Coppenrath, the conventional plastic blister was replaced with an environmentally friendly paper case. It can be folded without any adhesives and can thus be easily disposed of in the waste paper recycling.
In the future we want to change 100% of our products over from plastic to paper!
Palm oil from sustainable cultivation
For several years Coppenrath is a member of the RSPO (Roundtable of Sustainable Palm Oil). The association is composed of different organizations (producers, traders, NGOs, etc.) and is committed to promote a sustainable production of palm oil and its use.
There are two different delivery models: "Mass Balance" - partly sustained and "segregation" - completely sustainable. From July 2016 on, we are exclusively supplied with certified palm oil!

Using UTZ certified cocoa
For many of our products we already use UTZ-certified cocoa.
The UTZ Certified program is for a better future for farmers, to provide their families and our planet. Under the program, it will enable farmers to learn better farming methods and to improve their working condition.

For some products, we also use selected raw materials from organic farming for the production.
