Our sustainability milestones
The TIGER Energy Officers start their work: 15 committed employees work together to implement effective sustainability projects.
Based on the Sustainable Development Goals, TIGER defines seven global sustainability ambitions that we want to achieve by 2030.
TIGER integrates the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) into his corporate strategy and goals.
Plug and drive!
We set up the first charging stations for e-cars at the plant site in Wels.
For years sustainability has been impacting our research and development activities at the modern TIGER R&D center. Read on and learn more about our current research focus.
Our 370 kWp photovoltaic system goes into operation.
The power generated by the 1,914 m2 system on the roofs of the factory buildings covers around two percent of TIGER's total electricity needs at the Wels site.
The Gemba Support Center (GSC) is officially opened during the “Long Night of Research”. This modern office building is heated by a heat pump which uses a cooling basin from production as a heat source.
125,000 kWh/a (heating)
135,000 kWh/a (cooling)
In November 2018 TIGER receives the Energy Star of the Province of Upper Austria. Our GSC took first place in the "Energy Innovation for Sustainable Workplaces" category.
Beat the heat!
TIGER starts producing “Cool Roof” powder coatings for facade applications.
In the same year, we also install an online energy monitoring system at the Wels site.
TIGER starts to use generated heat as often and efficiently as possible. Several heat recovery systems ensure that the waste heat from our production is used with the help of heat exchangers instead of being blown into the air.
Goodbye heavy metals!
In the production of powder coatings for interior use, TIGER is one of the first in German-speaking countries to dispense with lead and cadmium pigments.
