As our current actions shape the future of our planet, Rotax operates under an environmental approach.


As our current actions shape the future of our planet, Rotax operates under an environmental approach.
For us, the first stage was to carry out a review of the impact of our activity on the environment. This is why in 2010 we carried out an analysis of the carbon footprint of our industrial process and its environment.

This study enabled us to calculate that each kilogram of material processed at Rotax generates 4.3 kg of CO2 equivalent (scope 1 + 2 + 3, in accordance with standard ISO 14064).

This value places our rotational moulding procedure at the same level of environmental impact as plastic injection.
Our direction now is to reduce this value, something we are achieving by focusing our approach on three main areas:

  • RECYCLABLE: ROTAX only processes 100% recyclable materials
  • RECYCLING: our production waste (less than 4% of processed material), is reintegrated, with our customers’ agreement, into the virgin material
  • RECYCLE: Optimisation of the end-of-life use of our products is a one of the major challenges, and this is why we are studying a recovery solution for our own products at the end-of-life stage, in order to reuse them as raw materials
