Ulrike Rabmer-Koller is an entrepreneur for more sustainability

Woman in Business Award for sustainable products and services goes to Ulrike Rabmer-Koller

With the "Entrepreneur for more sustainability" campaign, Frau in der Wirtschaft aims to highlight what self-employed women across all regions in Upper Austria have been doing for many years on the subject of sustainability. Ulrike Rabmer-Koller, Managing Director of the Rabmer Group based in Altenberg near Linz, has now been honored as an "Entrepreneur for more sustainability".

The Rabmer family business has been focusing on innovation and environmental technology for over thirty years. As a pioneer in Austria, for example, the Rabmer Group offers a solution for sustainable heating and cooling with energy from wastewater, the energy source of which is available around the clock and every day of the year. Another innovative environmental product from Rabmer is Ecoturbino. The quick and easy-to-install system saves around 40 percent water and energy when showering without any loss of comfort. As a Climate Alliance company and holder of the Austrian Federal Ecolabel, Rabmer also attaches great importance to sustainability in its own company and has implemented important measures: for example, it uses waste wood from construction and carpentry for heating, generates electricity with a 30 kW PV system and is gradually implementing e-mobility; in addition, highly efficient LED lamps have been installed throughout the building. In the construction sector, the company works almost exclusively with regional suppliers and attaches great importance to efficient construction site management.

"With this award, we want to make visible how sustainability is already practiced in the most diverse facets, especially in women-run companies," says Margit Angerlehner, Chairwoman of Frau in der Wirtschaft, who is delighted with the initiative. The award-winning female entrepreneurs offer sustainable products or services or have integrated sustainable and environmentally conscious measures into their day-to-day work.
