Responsible handling of our environment – a matter close to our heart.

GSR Gustav Stursberg GmbH has an important responsibility for sustainable development as a business enterprise – that is why the issue of the environment occupies an important place in our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).


Environmental governance

GSR has set itself high environmental protection goals and works continuously on a continuous improvement of the company and its handling of our environment. Not only are we DIN EN ISO 14001:2015 certified, we have also completely switched our lighting to LEDs to reduce energy consumption. Furthermore, our company vehicles are equipped with the most modern catalytic converters, with a displacement of max. 2.0 litres. In order to reduce waste, we pay attention to recyclable and precisely fitting packaging of our goods, and only harmless auxiliary and operating materials are used. Compliance with all applicable standards and legal regulations is a matter of course for us.

However, we also strive to show a healthy awareness of our environment outside of our operational processes. All employees do without plastic bags, cling film etc. and use reusable crockery for their sandwiches and meals. A compost heap was created in the company’s own garden to reduce the amount of residual waste. The open spaces are also equipped with raised beds, a flower meadow is created and local fruit trees are planted to promote biodiversity.

Eco single-material packaging


Our tools’ cardboard packaging was designed with the aim of minimising the environmental impact of sales packaging. It consists exclusively of printed carboard and can easily be disposed with the waste paper.

Our environmentally friendly packaging is not only available for our holding tools, but also for short machine taps and even entire tap sets.

Paperless office


A sustainable approach to our environment begins with the small things – even in the office. This is why we take great care to limit the paper consumption in our office to the bare essentials, with the ultimate goal of eliminating it completely. Invoices and other important documents are created and send out digitally, and printing out documents is avoided whenever possible.

In addition to sustainability, the efficiency of a paperless office is crucial for us – documents and projects are stored centrally, so that teamwork is smoothly possible even from the home office or during a business trip. Helpful tools, such as a document management system and messenger service, shorten work paths and make daily work much easier.
