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, women in business want to show what self-employed women have been doing across all regions in Upper Austria 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. The Rabmer Group, for example as a pioneer in Austria, offers a solution for sustainable heating and cooling supply with energy from waste water, whose energy source waste water is available around the clock and every day of the year. Another innovative environmental product from Rabmer is Ecoturbino. The system, which is quick and easy to install, saves around 40 percent water and energy when showering without any loss of comfort. As a climate alliance company and bearer of the Austrian Federal Ecolabel, Rabmer also attaches great importance to sustainability in its own company and takes important measures: For example, waste wood from construction and carpentry is used for heating, electricity is generated with a 30 kW PV system and e-mobility implemented step by step, and highly efficient LED lamps were installed throughout the building. In the construction sector, we work almost exclusively with regional suppliers and value efficient construction site management.

“With the award, we want to make visible how sustainability is already practiced in the most diverse facets, especially in women-led companies,” says Margit Angerlehner, State Chairwoman of Women in Business, about the initiative. The award-winning entrepreneurs offer sustainable products or services or have integrated sustainable and environmentally conscious measures into their everyday work.
