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 in Germany.
We take a three-pronged approach to environment management:
- Avoid consumption of resources. Reduce CO2 emissions from inhouse-operations, with a range of measures. This includes using energy-efficient devices and renovating buildings accordingly.
- Substitute CO2-intensive energy sources. Wherever possible we are replacing conventional sources of electricity by renewables. For example, in the Brienner Strasse location we have been using power from photovoltaic devices since 1998.
- Offsetting unavoidable CO2-emissions. Not all CO2-emissions can be avoided. We offset for this by buying and cancelling high-grade emissions certificates.
