When talking about climate protection and the preservation of our planet, our minds tend to go to transport or coal mining. It is easily forgotten that the worldwide increase in electricity consumption through the use of the internet also makes CO2 emissions grow at an accelerated pace. Numerous studies show that the internet causes at least as much greenhouse gas emissions as aviation.
In order to compensate for the CO2 pollution caused by visiting the website www.bender.de, Bender has decided to support environmental projects. For this purpose, an amount calculated after registering at www.co2neutralwebsite.com goes directly to the promotion of long-term projects to reduce CO2 emissions. Investments are made, for example, in the promotion of renewable energy sources, in projects against the deforestation of the rainforest or in the improvement of the living conditions of local communities.
With this approach, Bender is in good company. So far, more than 2,500 companies from 50 countries are entitled to use the "CO2 neutral website" seal.
"We support the aim of raising awareness of the CO2 emissions caused by websites and thus underscore our claim to assume responsibility towards people and the environment. This is especially important to us in the year of our 75th company anniversary, because we are also living up to the claim of our company founder, who has always been committed to social causes," adds Heinz Nowicki, Chief Sales Officer (CSO) at Bender.
Bender has integrated ecology as an inherent part of its corporate culture and has been certified according to DIN EN ISO 14001 since 2011. As an independent family company, we think in generations. Sustainable business practices and raising awareness among employees and customers are an essential prerequisite for this purpose.
