Environment

Our business activities have a significant impact on climate and the environment. This is a result not only of the products we sell but of our entire operations, from the construction and operational running of buildings to the transport of goods.

We aim to minimise the ecological footprint of our entire business. We strive to become a climate-neutral company and are therefore committed to the continuous reduction of our greenhouse gas emissions.

To achieve this, we will continue to increase our energy efficiency across the business, to minimise the impact of our refrigerants on global warming, to improve logistics efficiency, to use renewable energies, and support climate protection projects. Aspiring towards zero-waste business practices, we are guided by the principle to reduce, reuse, and recycle. In close cooperation with architects, planning engineers, and construction companies, we implement innovative concepts to constantly reduce the climatic and environmental impacts of our stores, distribution centres, and corporate administration buildings.
