The prioritization of sustainability is an integral part of our corporate culture. Resource-conserving construction, the use of modern building and energy management systems, as well as the use of sustainable materials and the social responsibility practised by our employees shapes our actions.
We focused consistently on the guiding principles of sustainability, innovation and design when we built our new corporate headquarters. Among other things, our headquarters produces its own energy, which is then stored and made available as needed by a state-of-the-art energy management system. We also implemented a building management system that links up DALI-controlled LEDs, climate control systems and solar shading and alarm systems, and aligns these with one another as well. In addition, our deployment of hydroboxes allows us to use water rather than a refrigerant as a coolant, and our central ventilation and exhaust-air system with a heat recovery feature meets the most stringent standards for energy efficiency.
We have created an optimal work environment with modern and ergonomic furniture, intelligent lighting systems and innovative sound insulation. Regardless of whether our people have a task to complete on their own or need to work in a team – we have the right work area for every requirement. Our utilisation of organic, sustainable and long-lasting materials not only eases the strain on the environment; it also provides for a natural look and feel in the workplace.
We offer various benefits that are designed to ensure a pleasant working atmosphere and thus a high level of satisfaction among our employees. These benefits include free lunches, the availability of different types of spaces for relaxation, and measures that promote the health of our employees. These days, the work-life balance is more important than ever, which is why we make sure our employees can structure their working hours flexibly in line with their needs and situation. Ultimately, the entire team does its part to help ensure a sustainable future, which makes their work more meaningful and also more beneficial to society as a whole. In line with this principle, we also work to strengthen the local economy and incorporate as many regional companies as possible into joint projects.
