Zedler-Group honoured with Award for the Environment 2020

Zedler – Institut für Fahrradtechnik und -Sicherheit GmbH (alias Zedler-Group) was able to convince another award jury of their sustainability concept, which has been continuously developed over the past 25 years with “hundreds of larger and smaller measures”: this time, the Ludwigsburg-based company was awarded the Business Award for the Environment 2020 of Baden-Wuerttemberg’s Ministry for the Environment, Climate and Energy Economy.

...and the winner is: Zedler-Group

With 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 plastics instead of concrete, unsealed courtyard areas, an all-year share of cycle traffic above 70 percent and much more measures, the Zedler-Group were able to prove their consistent eco-friendliness to the top-class jury in the category “Trade and Services“ with the biggest number of nominees.

As usual in these times, Minister Franz Untersteller awarded the Business Award for the Environment 2020 Baden-Wuerttemberg in a live connection via video.

“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”, company founder and principal Dirk Zedler explains. A few months ago, Zedler-Institut as a small company in the cycle industry have already been able to prove in the course of certification by the German Sustainable Building Council that climate-positive commercial buildings are just as possible as climate-neutral business operations (i.e. without certificate trading).
