A few years ago, we set ourselves the goal of reducing 30 of THE GEDYS IntraWare CO2 emissions. In total, we have been able to achieve a reduction of 52 since 2010. This corresponds to a saving of about 40 tons of CO2 per year. The biggest savings were the investment in new server hardware as well as the centralization of the servers at the Fulda site. About 70 employees work here, who among other things program our CRM software.
Climate protection in everyday life
But many small savings measures in everyday life have also contributed a lot to the CO2 reduction:
- Replacement of fluorescent tubes with LED lights
- Installation of timers on continuous heaters
- Optimization of air conditioning systems in server rooms
- Conscious switching on and off of light
- Conscious use of heating and air conditioning units
- Proper ventilation in all offices
“Since you like to forget a lot of things in everyday life, it is always important to remember yourself every day what you can do – also helping to remember each other.”
Managing Director of GEDYS IntraWare GmbH
Climate protection must now be on the agenda
The Fridays for Future movement has managed to move people in recent months. The issue of climate change and climate protection has changed elections and surprised politicians. Suddenly, young people are making politics for their future.
We believe that this movement and its events help to put climate protection at the top of the political agenda – both small and large.
At GEDYS IntraWare, we are gradually converting all company cars to hybrid vehicles.In addition, we plan to invest in PV systems with storage facilities and the installation of an electricity filling station on the company premises in Fulda. In future, the Fulda office will be supplied with solar power.
Our group of companies includes a company that operates 5 large photovoltaic plants. We already produce significantly more electricity from the sun in the Group than we consume, saving an additional 350 tons of CO2 each year.
