Climate Protection

16. September 2013

The Internet platform www.wirtschaft-pro-klima.de is a source of inspiration for climate protection.

Committed companies publish successful projects here. Like Bischof + Klein for example: at B+K Konzell, annual heating oil consumption was successfully reduced from 600,000 litres to 150,000 litres through the installation of a heat pump. The objective of the "Wirtschaft pro Klima" initiative is to specifically portray and promote the climate protection commitment undertaken by German companies. It is run by "B.A.U.M." (German study group for environmentally aware management) and supported by the Federal Environmental Agency and the Federal Ministry of the Environment. "Whoever commits to "Wirtschaft pro Klima" is demonstrating responsibility for climate protection", it states on the website. And in a very specific way, too. A database illustrates the entire breadth of the climate protection measures and the CO2 emissions avoided as a result of them. The practical examples range from energy saving measures in the area of lighting to increased use of recovered heat, more efficient climate control technology and CO2-reducing changes in the vehicle fleet. In the future, Bischof + Klein will also set further examples which drive climate protection forwards.
