The German Sustainability Award 2021 in the category ‘Transformation Resources’ has been awarded to Neudorff, the leading manufacturer of environmentally friendly products for plant care and natural gardening. The medium-sized company triumphed over reputable competitors due to its holistic approach to environmentally friendly product ranges and resource-conserving production.
Hans-Martin Lohmann, Managing Director of Neudorff, received the prestigious award at the live event on 4 December, which took place digitally this year. He said: “This award is a high-level appreciation of our efforts in recent years and an incentive to operate even more sustainably in as many areas of the company as possible in the future. I am particularly pleased for our employees, without whom this would not have been possible. It is an incentive for us to continue in this direction.”
The German Sustainability Award is the most comprehensive accolade of its kind in Europe. For the thirteenth time, business enterprises were called upon to enter the competition, demonstrating their effective contributions to transformation in the important areas of climate, resources, biodiversity and society.
Neudorff has already implemented numerous resource-saving processes, produces its own electricity using hydropower and photovoltaics and channels substantial investment into sustainable production processes and sustainable packaging.
Neudorff's medium-term goals are to reduce the company's carbon footprint even further, to draw up additional carbon-reduction plans for products, and to find even more resource-saving solutions in all areas of its operations. Neudorff is planning to expand its decentralised power supply and further increase the energy efficiency of its production facilities.
