Ecology & Sustainability

Ecology & sustainability

Laudert is committed to ecology and sustainability on many levels. The company demonstrates this through its own projects and initiatives, but also offers promotions that make it easier for employees to act sustainably in the context of their work.

We invest a lot of energy in minimising our ecological footprint. To this end, we are constantly on the lookout for environmentally friendly processes and alternative designs for our buildings and sites as well as all our operational processes.

We run our entire head office in Vreden on green electricity, operating our own photovoltaic system which generates around 330,000 kWh of electricity annually. We charge the e-cars in our fleet at our own e-charging points, as well as those of our guests. Employees have bicycles at their disposal and enjoy free tickets for local public transport.

It goes without saying that we have been honing our processes for years, to minimise the use of paper in order to save water and energy. Procurement is continuously optimised in terms of sustainability – for example, we converted the food packaging of every item on the staff lunch menu to organic cardboard.

With ClimatePartner, we are currently in the process of evaluating our carbon footprint via an external company in order to identify further opportunities for improvement.

The Laudert Garden

In recent years, Laudert has invested heavily in the ecological redesign of the wide expanse surrounding the Laudert headquarters in Vreden. Numerous animal and plant species have found a home here. Our current population includes two bee colonies and there are ten bird nesting boxes, six insect nesting aids, a plethora of gloriously insect-friendly perennial plants and spring bulbs, nine fruit trees, over 100 bird-friendly trees packed with food, a wild meadow of over 1,300 m2, a herb bed and last but not least, a near-natural pond of over 50 m2, where even the rare great crested newts feel at home.
