20% reduction in CO2 emissions over last 5 years

Gleistein receives recognition as “Climate Protection Company”

Gleistein Ropes is an environmentally aware company and is active in promoting climate protection. With efficient production processes and the introduction of various environmentally friendly measures Gleistein has reduced its carbon footprint by 20% over the last five years alone. Among the measures implemented were the complete switch to power generated from 100% renewable sources and the installation of a combined heat and power (cogeneration) unit. These efforts have now been recognised by the City of Bremen as part of the “Climate Protection Company CO2-20” initiative, which distinguishes businesses in Bremen that have reduced their CO2 emissions by at least 20% over the past five years. Gleistein is the first company in Bremen to be honoured in 2015. It represents a further incentive for Gleistein to continue taking active steps in climate protection.
