Environmental management / energy management certificate:
On 7 November 2012, TÜV Rheinland issued Tönnies-Holding as one of the first companies in the meat industry a certificate confirming the compliance of its environmental management system with ISO 14001:2004 and energy management system with ISO 50001. Both certificates are valid for a total of five companies of Tönnies-Holding. Acontex GmbH represents one of these five companies. Tönnies-Holding and acontex GmbH undertake, for an initial period until 2015, to comply with the very demanding and transparent requirements of the two ISO certificates across the entire production chain, from the slaughtering and sectioning to the processing of the by-products from pork and beef processing.
