Ökoprofit award for A. & H. Meyer

ÖKOPROFIT® project of the district of Lippe

Yesterday, the participants in the 3rd round of the Ökoprofit project were honored at the InnovationSPIN in Lemgo. This means that the one-year project phase, which was accompanied by our Teamgreen for 🔌 A. & H. Meyer 🏅, was successfully completed. The award adds another piece of the puzzle to our sustainability initiative; We are now 🌳 Ökoprofit company 2023/2024 🌳.

The sustainable use of energy and resources was the aim of the third round of the ÖKOPROFIT® project. In view of rising energy and material costs, many companies are having to recalculate and are looking for ways to save energy and become more independent.

The aim is to improve the environmental and climate footprint of the participating companies and facilities, reduce operating costs and promote employee motivation.
