GEALAN pushes its commitment to climate protection: effective immediately, the administration at the headquarters in Oberkotzau and the manufacturing facility in Tanna, Thuringia, will be completely powered by renewable energy. This means that GEALAN covers 100% of its electricity needs at both locations with energy that comes 100% from wind, sun, water, biomass and geothermal energy. The complete conversion has been certified by E.ON Deutschland GmbH.
In concrete terms, Oberkotzau saves a good 1,900 tonnes of CO2 per year, while Tanna saves more than 16,000 tonnes. "This is another milestone we are setting as a company for environmental and climate protection," says GEALAN managing director Ivica Maurović, "the first one is not. For decades, GEALAN has been successfully committed to the careful use of natural resources. With its coordinated, EMAS and ISO-certified environmental management, the company is considered a pioneer, especially in the area of recycling, and an industry leader in environmental and climate protection.
GEALAN improves its ecological footprint year after year. "This is no small thing, and it is not a matter of course that we do it," says Tino Albert, GEALAN's managing director for technology and finances. "GEALAN is acting here with full conviction that we are doing the right thing; we remain true to our corporate responsibility to the environment and act with an eye to the future. For us, environmental protection and resource efficiency are prerequisites for long-term business success.
