Climate Protection Strategy

Our climate protection strategy: a three-tier approach

We attach particular importance to climate protection. In our Munich location we have been climate-neutral since 2008. Since 2015, this now applies to all our locations.

We take a three-tier approach to environment management:

  • Avoid using resources. Reduce CO2 emissions from operations, with a range of measures. This includes using energy-efficient devices and renovating buildings accordingly.
  • Substitute CO2-intensive energy sources. As far as possible we are replacing conventional sources of energy with renewables. For example, in the Brienner Strasse location we have been using electricity from photovoltaic devices since 1998.
  • Compensate for unavoidable CO2 emissions. Not all CO2 emissions can be avoided. We compensate for this by buying and cancelling valuable emissions certificates.
