Climate protection: One of the most important tasks of our society
We cannot stop climate change alone, but everyone can do a great deal in their own environment for climate protection. Every kilowatt of electricity or heat that is saved or replaced by renewable energies helps. We, too, as companies, can and must do a great deal in the future.
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
“Becauseyou like to forget a lot of things in everyday life, it is always important to remind yourself every day what you can do – also helps to remember each other.”

Nobody wants to go back to the Stone Age
No one wants to give up their wealth and lifestyle. Nor do we believe that pure black-and-white thinking is appropriate here.
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.
Doing the obvious: Get on with it!
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.
