Our climate mission
For a sustainable energy future.
Through innovative spirit and technical progress
we are creating a sustainable future together.
With our digital heat management & self-learning thermostats we save companies and municipalities up to 32% heating energy and CO2 emissions. Through continuous further developments, this factor will increase in the future.
At the moment 30% of the emissions in Germany are caused by the operation of buildings. Thereby, 70% of the final energy consumption is due to room heat. Paradox: Although rooms are not used up to 80% of the time, they are heated non-stop. This is where we come in.
The potential for CO2 savings in the building sector through solutions like ours is huge. According to dena, there are an estimated 2.7 million heated non-residential buildings in Germany. In the office buildings and public and educational facilities sectors, the potential savings amount to about 5 million tons of CO2, and in Europe as a whole, as much as about 21 million tons of CO2 per year.
The first step towards climate neutrality is the reduction of avoidable greenhouse gas emissions. Through the use of our thermostats in our rooms, the use of green electricity, our business account with a sustainable bank, as well as production in the area around Hamburg, we have already been able to achieve a low CO2 balance.
Together with ConClimate, we balanced our business activities and the associated emissions, using the internationally recognized Greenhouse Gas Protocol. For 2020, we have got a total corporate carbon footprint of 19.6t/year.
To offset our footprint, we support a compensation project in the area of forest protection in Portel/Brazil. The project protects 3,000 hectares of land annually from deforestation for soy cultivation or other agricultural operations.
Sustainability has played a central role ever since we were founded. We base our activities on this matter on the principle of continuous improvement and thus try to make not only our CO2 emissions but also our daily activities more and more sustainable.
When selecting suppliers, we consider not only economic factors but also environmental and social aspects. Take transport routes, for example: Here we carefully weigh up whether we work with suppliers from Europe or overseas.
We attach great importance to a trusting relationship with our suppliers. It is important to us that this respectful relationship is also lived by our suppliers.
Our product is an in-house development with patented technology – made in Germany. Our manufacturing service provider for the electronic components is based in the Hamburg area. The components we purchase are also largely sourced from Germany.
In order to be able to guarantee environmental friendliness and social compatibility along the entire value chain, we are continuously working to further optimize our transparency.
