The topic of sustainability, the conscious use of resources and the protection of our environment are very important to us. From the small to the big - we work at all levels to contribute to the preservation of our planet.

We pay attention to environmental protection even in supposedly small things, because many small parts form a big whole and because everyone can make a contribution. In this way, we create awareness among our employees and sensitise them to the issue.

PRODUCTION IN FRANKFURT (ODER)

PRODUCTION IN FRANKFURT (ODER)
  • We produce locally in Frankfurt (Oder). This saves us long transport routes and at the same time promotes regional value chains.
  • It goes without saying that our production complies with current environmental standards, as evidenced by our environmental management system certificate according to DIN EN ISO 14001.
  • The sustainable use of resources and the setting of environmental goals are an integral part of this, as is the identification and elimination of sources of error and risks that endanger environmental protection.
  • More detailed information on our environmental management can be found here

PLANT-MY-TREE® Partnership

PLANT-MY-TREE ®

We are a climate partner of PLANT-MY-TREE ®, a climate and environmental organisation that carries out reforestation projects on its own land in Germany. In particular, we support an area in Ratzdorf, near our production in Frankfurt (Oder) with 500 trees.
 

PLANT-MY-TREE ® has been carrying out reforestation projects for CO² compensation throughout Germany since 2007. The goal is environmental and climate protection in Germany, where our CO² emissions also occur. Since 2020, PLANT-MY-TREE ® has also been carrying out forest conversion and forest protection projects in addition to the initial afforestation projects, and attaches great importance to a high level of biodiversity. The projects of PLANT-MY-TREE ® are with lifetimes of at least 99 years, during which no deforestation or economic use is intended. According to the motto "Every tree counts" and "Climate protection is fun", PLANT-MY-TREE ® and its partners contribute to environmental and climate protection in order to leave a world worth living in for future generations. At the beginning of 2020, PLANT-MY-TREE® was successfully certified by TÜV Rheinland according to DIN ISO 9001:2015.
