We have flipped the switch!

In our company, several million kilowatt hours of electricity add up each year. And sustainability is not just a buzzword for us. On 1 August 2016, we have flipped the switch and completely switched to green electricity.

The electricity we are since then purchasing from the Oldenburg energy supplier EWE is certified as 100% green electricity by TÜV North (German Technical Inspection Association). The following requirements are met:

  • The electricity generated comes from 100% renewable energies.
  • At least 10% of the electricity comes from new installations.
  • The electricity generated can be traced back to unambiguous and named sources.
  • The electricity is composed of water, wind and solar energy.
  • The electricity generated contributes to expansion of renewable energies.

100% green electricity = 5,000 tonnes CO2 less per year

Everything within the sphere of activity of our company in Bad Zwischenahn - our factory, the Charlottenhof and the mill - thus receives electricity from renewable sources. This means that we are saving 5,000 tonnes of CO2 per year, which is roughly as much as 500 people produce per year.100% Green electricity = 5,000 tonnes less CO2 per year
