Mahlwerck Porzellan: 100 per cent climate neutral
Porcelain mugs and cups are themselves already especially sustainable since porcelain can be used an almost unlimited number of times. Climate-neutral production means even more sustainability.
Mahlwerck Porzellan’s production is now 100 per cent climate neutral. “We decided to make the entire company and its products climate neutral. The company wants to act responsibly and is assuming all the costs this entails. So this is not going to make Mahlwerck products and finishing processes even a single cent more expensive,” says Managing Director Tobias Köckert. The entire CO2 footprint of the company and its products – pollutants equivalent to approx. 900 metric tons of CO2 per year – will be offset in the future through the purchase of certificates. Heike Hampel-Rudolph, the second Managing Director of the company next to Köckert, says, “As far as prices are concerned, customers will not notice any difference. The company would simply like to make a statement.” The offset certificates support innovative projects in the areas of forest protection, wind energy, water power, biomass and local business development all over the world. “Obviously, there is still more we here at Mahlwerck Porzellan can do. The first Mahlwerck sustainability report will be issued at the end of the year. This is already something very unusual for a company of our size. We are also appointing a sustainability officer and setting up a sustainability group to pursue the path to a holistic sustainability strategy,” says Tobias Köckert, describing further plans. www.mahlwerck.de/klimaneutral
