Every day we put a whole lot of energy into ensuring we offer customers the best possible service. As soon as it is a question of electricity and heating requirements, our aim is to conserve our valuable resources in a responsible manner. At H.S. FASHION logistics GmbH environmental awareness is for example demonstrated in our approach to sustainable power generation and use of energy. We teamed up with 22 other companies from the district of Steinfurt and obtained ÖKOPROFIT certification in 2012.
The most important measures making up our environmental commitment:
Since spring 2010 a photovoltaic system (peak level 135 kW) installed on both roofs of our logistics centre has been generating 'green' electricity from the sun's energy. Based on a family of four consuming around 5500 kW of electricity, this little powerhouse produces, on average, sufficient energy to supply 24 homes per year.
Electricity from renewable sources
As early as 2005, when we moved into our new logistics centre, we opted for a power supply free of CO2 and have since then obtained our electricity from hydroelectric power.
Energy-saving light fixtures
On relocation to the new building in 2005 we switched over our lighting to the extremely economical T5 system, which represented the current standard at the time. We have meanwhile introduced LED-based fluorescent energy-saving lamp technology throughout the company to further reduce our demand for electricity.
Reusing recyclable materials
At our company waste separation is a matter of course. We use individual containers to sort paper/card, films and materials for recycling via Germany's Dual System.
