With hundreds of large and small-scale measures, which have been steadily developed over the past 25 years, the realised sustainability concept convinced the top-class jury of the federal state Baden-Wuerttemberg and awarded the Business Award for the Environment to the Zedler-Group last week.

The intelligent use of process waste heat, the exclusive reuse of used packaging material, a building insulation made of recycled paper, leakage detection of the compressed air system, cistern water for toilet flushing, 48 percent of self-generated electricity, recycled plastic instead of concrete, unsealed courtyard areas, an all-year share of cycle traffic above 70 percent. Herewith the Zedler-Group substantiated their consistent eco-friendliness to the top-class jury in the category "Trade and Services” with the biggest number of best nominees.

“My team and I are absolutely happy to receive this prestigious award and especially recognition in our issues of the heart, i.e. sustainability and climate protection”, says Dirk Zedler. A few months ago, in the course of certification by the German Sustainable Building Council, the Zedler-Institute has already been able to prove that climate-positive commercial buildings are just as possible as climate-neutral business operations without certificate trading.

The prize was awarded via video. From minute 43:17 on in the recorded live stream you see the video of the Zedler-Group and the Minister’s laudatory speech.
