Motivation of Employees – A Cornerstone for Higher Eco-efficiency in Wastewater Treatmen
Keywords:Eco-efficiency, Green chemistry, Motivation, Responsible care, Wastewater treatment
AbstractVarious production processes at Roche AG, Sisseln generate large quantities of wastewater, which is treated in the company's own wastewater treatment plant. Although all statutory requirements are being met, the plant has set itself an ambitious target to increase eco-efficiency as part of the Responsible Care Program. After two years, the first net benefits are becoming clear. Over this period, it has been possible to achieve a 27% reduction in the solvent load of wastewater, which has had not only environmental benefits but also measurable economic benefits. This has been achieved by various measures in the production plants, supported by an interdepartmental working team and direct employee participation in the resultant cost savings.
