"Many talk about climate protection. We actually do something.“ H. R. Rathgeber takes care of the environment by using green electricity in three ways.
On the 01.01.2015, H. R. Rathgeber switched to environmentally friendly green electricity from renewable energy sources. Our environmental partner is MVV Energie, who mainly source the green electricity from Norwegian water power. From an environmental point of view, water power is one of the most environmentally-friendly energy sources. The certificate of origin and quality certification by MVV Energie has been confirmed officially by the Öko-Institut in Freiburg and by TÜV SÜD.
Motivation for the decision by H. R. Rathgeber included the spotlight on the climate protection discussion. Current studies show that an active contribution to environmental protection is increasingly expected from companies. According to surveys, customers make their buying decisions in increasing dependence on whether the manufacturer has a good reputation for environmental friendliness. Active environmental commitment is therefore not only an expression of environmental conviction but has also a positive effect on the company image.
With this decision, H. R. Rathgeber wants to sensitise their customers and partners to responsible treatment of the environment and to promote the demand for energy from regenerative sources. "The increasing demand for green energy requires increasing numbers of plants which generate electricity from regenerative energy sources. Our aim should be to forego all fossil energy sources and therefore counteract the increasing shortage of raw materials as well as the emission of environmentally-harmful CO2. We are happy to see that many companies are following our example," sums up Lutz Rathgeber, Managing Director of H. R. Rathgeber GmbH & Co. KG.

H.R. Rathgeber is at the forefront of a trend which more and more businesses in Germany are following. Climate-friendly production, the reduction of climate-damaging CO2 emissions and the resource-saving, responsible treatment of our environment have a sustainable effect on the environmental balance. It also has an effect on the buying behaviour of consumers: Those who act demonstrably climate-friendly improve their ecological balance sheet and increase their reputation with the public.
