Company-related Environmental Management

Company-related Environmental Management

WAGO takes environmental responsibility seriously - not only in the design of our products to increase productivity, minimize failure, and decrease waste, but also in our own facilities.

For example, in our headquarters in Minden, Germany we address this challenge through attention to material minimization, recycling, and such measures as roof greening, rainwater processing, and hazardous materials filtering of exhaust air.

At WAGO Corporation (Germantown, WI) we similarly embrace sustainability in a variety of ways including the installation of a wind turbine to supplement our energy usage, the use of LON based WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM products to achieve energy efficiency throughout our buildings, and the implementation of active waste and scrap reclamation recycling measures.

Installation of WAGO wind turbine

To supplement its energy needs, WAGO installed a Renewegy VP-20 Wind Turbine in 2012 to meet 10% of its engineering, manufacturing and sales hub’s energy needs.

Within 25 minutes of installing the turbine at WAGO’s HQ (utilizing a distinctive, hydraulic-driven Tip-up system to raise/lower itself), the three blades were spinning at 600+ RPM already generating power.
