The entire team receives a sweet reward for their important environmental commitment

Lüdenscheid, 16.11.2022 (PresseBox) - This year, Assmann proudly presents a particularly profitable honey harvest. As part of the large-scale internal sustainability project "Assmann goes green", the Lüdenscheid-based company operates two company-owned beehives with the active support of employee and part-time beekeeper Alex Babilon. This year, the environmental commitment has been particularly rewarding: thanks to an above-average profitable harvest, all 162 employees at the company headquarters can take a jar of the precious Assmann honey home. 

In an area of the company's premises surrounded by meadows and forests, Assmann placed two beehives in 2019. Each of them providing habitat for up to 40,000 bees, which pollinate native plants within a radius of about one kilometer, thus ensuring the preservation of a high level of biodiversity as well as a healthy ecosystem. And the commitment to nature and bees is rewarded - Assmann traditionally distributes the precious honey harvest to its employees, who all received their own jar this year.

Assmann goes green: With a great deal of initiative for more sustainability

Assmann is not only committed to the protection and preservation of bees. Much more, the initiative "Assmann goes green", founded in 2019, ensures more sustainability in corporate processes throughout the company. This also includes the switch to emission-free electric mobility. For example, the company relies almost exclusively on plug-in hybrid vehicles for company cars. Two of a total of eight charging points at the company headquarters in Lüdenscheid are available in the employee parking lot and are fed from the company's own photovoltaic system. Since 2022, all employees also have the option of leasing e-bikes through the company, thus making their own commute to work environmentally friendly.
