The lights at our logistics centres in Mäder (AT) and Magdeburg (DE) have been converted to environmentally friendly LEDs.
We use only green electricity at the branch in Mäder.
At the logistics centre in Magdeburg, we commissioned a new photovoltaic system in 2018, which will produce 750,000 kWh of electricity annually.
This plant generates more electricity than we ourselves need. We supply the surplus energy to the public power grid.
Work has also begun at our branch in Mäder on the construction of a photovoltaic system. The first phase of the construction has been completed and already covers about a quarter of our annual electricity requirement (100,000 kWh).
Since 2018, we have been a partner of the climate neutrality alliance Klimaneutralitätsbündnis 2025 and have been certified as a climate-neutral business location.
Our CO2 emissions of 1,009 tonnes for our branches in Austria, Germany and Switzerland have been offset by CO2 emissions allowances from a climate protection aid project in Ethiopia.
This aid project is a full-service package for around 5,000 households in eight Ethiopian communities.
The total package for each household includes two efficient cooking stoves, vegetable seeds plus training in growing vegetables, tree seedlings plus reforestation projects, a solar-powered lighting source and WADI drinking water treatment which is powered by the sun.
The aim of the project is to improve the lives of people locally.
Our contribution has helped 350 households! We are very proud to be part of this great project.
