Agfa has a long-standing tradition of environmental responsibility. The creation of added values goes hand in hand with the creation of welfare while minimising the environmental and social impact. Agfa not only considers the impact of its own production activities, but also that of up- and downstream activities.
The ecological impact of Agfa’s production activities mainly consists of emissions into the air and water, the use of raw materials and the use of energy. The company has invested significantly in waste water treatment, with more than 50% of its waste water reused on site. It has also installed biological waste water treatment technologies, resulting in a reduction in waste loads of more than 80%.
