Sustainability means more than just switching off the lights. Although this, too, is done automatically in our company as soon as an employee leaves his or her workplace. However, this is only a small component in a complex puzzle.
Three aspects are always in the foreground where it comes to sustainability: Ecology, economy and social matters. In the case of the light switch hence: Lowering energy consumption, thus saving money that could be spent on the qualification of the employees. While it sounds so simple here, with regard to the entire companies this comprises a whole package of measures relating to all things in raw material purchase, production and packaging. At Kneipp, a Sustainability Officer specifically takes care of this. Moreover, several times a year an interdisciplinary working group meets that ensures the further development of sustainability and environmental management activities at Kneipp.
