“We are proud of this award,” said prof Stefan Mecheels, owner of the family-run company, Hohenstein. “We certify textile manufacturers ourselves and issue sustainability labels such as Made In Green by Oeko-Tex. So it is very important for us to set a good example.”
Since April 2018, Hohenstein has taken part in eight Ecofit workshops with companies from the Ludwigsburg region. Together they developed individual actions for better company environmental and climate protection. An inspection was then carried out by an independent commission. The new laboratory ventilation system at Hohenstein will save almost 100 tonnes of CO2 a year – this is equivalent to approximately 2,000 square metre of new forest area.
One unusual action at Hohenstein was the installation of nesting aids for woodpeckers: these provide the birds with new habitats and at the same time prevent permanent damage to the building façades. “This is a win-win situation for birds and the company,” said Jörg Weiß, director of building services at Hohenstein.
