Rudolf Schülke Foundation

In summary, we have achieved positive results in our Sustainability Program 2011-2013.

In particular, we have succeeded in the long-term establishment of the issue of energy efficiency at the Norderstedt plant through the introduction of energy management measures.

For the future, a number of measures for the efficient operation of our energy supply systems were put into place.

Also in the topic area, „use of alternative and renewable forms of energy“, we have taken important steps towards securing our energy supply through measures for using photovoltaic or force-heat coupling.
