We are an international manufacturer in dialogue with many people, companies, organizations, customers, and suppliers. For this reason, we are convinced of the necessity to take responsibility for the environment. In 2020, we were the first company in the event technology industry in Germany to be awarded with Green Globe Certification (see below).
An essential component of our environmentally friendly solutions is the 6,500 m² photovoltaic system on the roof of our company headquarters and connection to a local heating plant as an alternative to standard heating systems. For the further optimization of our energy supply, the expansion of our logistics center will create more than just new storage capacity. We are using the opportunity to build an additional photovoltaic system on the logistics building. This expansion will enable us to cover a major portion of our energy requirements with our own source of power generation.
Additional requirements for electricity will be drawn from green energy supplied by Greenpeace Energy (www.greenpeace-energy.de/geschaeftskunden.html), starting in January 2021. In the medium term, this will make it possible for us to cover 100% of our energy needs with environmentally sustainable sources and to significantly reduce our CO2 emissions. Sustainable mobility is also very important to us, which is why we provide our employees with charging facilities for e-bikes and e-cars in our parking lot.
To manage a company in harmony with social obligations towards employees and the human environment, one that sees itself responsibly as an integral part of the environment and whose preservation is not unconditionally subordinated to business success, is an active and ever-changing process requiring consistent effort. This is an essential characteristic of the corporate culture we have been able to create.
