Assmann Electronic promotes and sources renewable energies from solar and hydropower
Luedenscheid, 17. Febuary 2020 – To improve its environmental performance and reduce the company's ecological footprint, Assmann Electronic GmbH founded the "Assmann goes green" initiative in 2019. In the course of this initiative, the company is focusing entirely on renewable energies.
The driving force behind the initiative and co-managing director of Assmann Electronic, Phil Penninger, attaches great importance to involving trainees in future-oriented projects, such as the initiative. "Environmental management is not exclusively a matter for the management", emphasises Phil Penninger, Managing Director Operations. "The trainees have formed independent small groups according to their interests and implement the jointly defined measures according to the plan.
Since 2019, a total of 872 photovoltaic modules on the roofs of Assmann Electronic have been generating around 195,000 kilowatts of solar power annually - that is around two thirds of the company's total electricity requirements. The company also uses this energy to charge its own hybrid vehicles.
Certified energy from hydropower
Since 01.01.2020, Assmann Electronic has been procuring the electricity it needs from TÜV-SÜD-certified hydroelectric power plants. This means that all electricity comes exclusively from sustainable energy sources.
"We are delighted with the successful completion of the project and look forward to implementing further measures", summarises Jonas Heldmann, a second-year trainee in wholesale and foreign trade.
