Relaxed Business Get-Together regarding Sustainability
Last week we invited the nearby companies to discuss topics such as sustainability, as well as climate and environmental protection and the role model effect on our employees.
The Wirtschaftsbund Altenberg (which is kind of an economic alliance between several companies) regularly organises small networking events in a relaxed atmosphere. At the end of January, we got the opportunity to host this event.
In the course of the event, we presented our activities and actions to protect the climate. These range from regional purchasing and the usage of climate-friendly materials in the construction sector to a photovoltaic system, e-mobility, thermal renovation of our office and workshop building, conversion to LED lighting, conversion of the gas heating system to a modern wood chip heating system with which we recycle our wood waste from the construction sites, installation of underfloor heating instead of a fan heater in the workshop area, fuel-saving courses for our employees to our innovative environmental technology products, with the aid of whom significant contribution to climate protection can be made internationally.
Afterwards Mr. Spiekermann presented the Climate Alliance and its bid for companies. In the course of the subsequent discussion, we once again statet that the economy is an important player regarding environmental protection and the achievement of climate protection goals and that there is a win-win situation between the economy and the environment. Every company can make a contribution and also save costs. It is also very important that entrepreneurs set an example for their employees.
