Working together for a green future

We have a green guide – as we work to achieve more for a sustainable future.
Every day we let it guide us and follow its example.
In many different ways and in many areas, we have found ways to ensure more sustainability in our corporate structures. To inspire other people, companies or business partners and to share information, we tell our Green Story.
Everyone can do something to make the world a better place. No matter how small.
CO2 neutral online shops.
As we mainly offer our products online, it is important to us to make our online shops green as well. Therefore we participate in the “CO2 neutral websites” programme. With our contribution to this programme, we ensure that the CO2 emissions caused by us and by the users of our websites are neutralised through measurable CO2 reductions. The reductions are realised, among other things, through the installation of new, renewable energy sources (e.g. wind turbines) and through participation in controlled, CO2-reducing projects.
CO2 emissions are a global problem, so everyone should do something to reduce CO2 emissions as much as possible.
More trees in the world means fresh air for all of us.
That is why we have decided to support the ReviewForest project. With the help of our contribution and the official partner Plant-for-the-Planet, many new trees are planted and cared for in Mexico. Thanks to ReviewForest, we can also involve our customers, because for every review on Google, a new tree is planted.
This creates a huge review forest that everyone can see growing every day.
The global children’s and youth initiative Plant-for-the-Planet was founded in 2007 and is an official ReviewForest partner. By planting the trees, they effectively and cheaply ensure that more CO2 is captured. This is a sensible way to mitigate the climate crisis. But that was not all.
In addition, for every customer Google rating, a donation is made to the children’s academies of Plant-for-the-Planet.
As a company, we want to set a good example.
In order to integrate climate protection into our corporate structures in the long term, we turned to Climate Partner. Through an analysis of our business activities, opportunities were identified to develop helpful measures that were structured in a climate-neutral way. We have established measures that ensure more climate-friendly processes in our day-to-day business. Clearly defined climate protection targets ensure consistent implementation of the measures. Investments in climate protection projects to offset leftover emissions are also part of the climate protection strategy.
Holistic climate protection follows the principle of avoiding unnecessary emissions, reducing existing emissions and offsetting unavoidable emissions.
In order to offset unavoidable emissions, we invest in the climate protection project Plastic Bank Worldwide. As our oceans are polluted with huge amounts of plastic waste, we support the project to counteract the waste problem. The investment also enables sustainable local development. The Plastic Bank’s collection of plastic waste creates improved living conditions. The collected waste can be exchanged for money, food, drinking water and other essentials at collection points. The collected plastic waste is then recycled and turned into social plastic to be used for new products.
Through this project, we are helping to improve living conditions in Haiti, Indonesia, Brazil and the Philippines. But also our own, because climate change affects us all.
We use digitalisation and avoid waste and consumables.
Emails, phone, videoconferencing & Co have of course long been a good alternative to avoid paper waste and travel by car. We also want to bring our customers further along the digital path:
• We only send invoices digitally
• Product information can all be accessed online
• We offer consultations by telephone or video call
For business trips or official journeys, we are travelling green as well.
Of course, there are also appointments or errands that require travel by car. For these we use our RESORTI Mobil. The vehicle is an electric car and can be used perfectly for shorter distances, for several people or for small transports. Here, too, we can save emissions and take a step towards climate protection.
We also use electricity for small errands or a walk in the fresh air. With our e-bike, we are fast, efficient and it’s fun too. Our RESORTI e-bike is at our free disposal and is used almost daily. It also does a good job in the city, no searching for a parking space and no emissions.
The e-bike ideally supports the cycling process, keeping you from running out of breath quickly, but is still good for your fitness. Another bonus of the RESORTI e-bike.
Our workplace model also brings further relief. We have home office workplaces for employees. This saves us a few trips to the office. We also support a healthy work-life balance, because less travel means more free time and less stress for us.
Everyday things also play an important role in the fight against climate change. Here are a few little things that we have built into our normal everyday operations to take many small steps:
Waste separation is our top priority
We only serve drinks in glass bottles
Coffee ́s directly available as a bean, not as a capsule
We have a fully equipped kitchen to avoid buying fast food
We use rechargeable batteries
Our merchandise bags are made of recycled material
When buying, we look for seals such as FSC certified, Fairtrade etc.
For a good climate we use plants in every office
We gave wild bees and butterflies a meadow as a Christmas present to our business partners
Many small things, but all together they have a big effect. We would like to find more ways to become greener in order to enable our earth and ourselves to lead a greener life.
