“Our target is not only to make bicycles and electric‐assisted bikes more user-friendly, more endurable and thus safer, but also to operate a business that takes as little from nature as possible”, explains managing director Dirk Zedler.
On the basis of measured values the company analyses and documents for example how resource-saving in their company-internal processes and as a result how CO2‐neutral they have already been working in the past years. They herewith offer transparency in terms of energy efficiency, commitment for their employees or in the social field. This is what experts also call Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
De facto, Zedler-Group see themselves at the finish line: With a climate-positive “platinum” building, the highest possible certification awarded by the German Sustainable Building Council (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Nachhaltiges Bauen e.V.), and all in all climate-neutral business operations, all medium- to long-term goals postulated by politics and industry have already been achieved, according to the company.
Zedler-Group want their second sustainability report, which can be downloaded here, to be understood as a consistent continuation of reviewing, improving and transparently presenting the company's concepts and implementation within the company. The prize winner of Baden-Wuerttemberg’s Business Award for the Environment 2020 wants to maintain and constantly optimise the standards they have set for themselves.
