Carl Zeiss Vision is dedicated to environmental protection and sustainability. The company claims they take every precaution to prevent pollution from the outset, including the sparing use of resources such as energy, water and material. A water recycling unit, installed in the Surfacing line, has resulted in a reduction in water usage of 86kL per week.
Likewise, CZV energy consumption levels are well below the National Pollutant Inventory Reporting requirements. Even the path followed by the product to the customer’s doorstep is carefully monitored: every day, company experts seek the best solutions for packaging and transportation.
Some of the items recycled at Carl Zeiss Vision include lenses recycled for use as paint thinners; printer cartridges; e-waste (computers and other electrical items); timber products; fluorescent light tubes; cardboard and paper; plastics and aluminium drinking cans.
