The nature and environmental protection is especially important for us.
A sustainable and environmentally friendly behaviour in all areas of our company's operations is very important to us. The search for more environmentally friendly packaging for our products,
organic raw materials and gentle manufacturing processes as well as for more sustainable work processes in administration is an important aspect of our work. It is a matter of course for us to use natural resources responsibly, to respect the environment and to actively contribute to a sustainable behaviour.
CO2 emissions cannot be avoided completely. BIOTURM therefore has compensated since 2018
all emissions generated by the company which cannot be reduced any further by financially supporting national and international climate protection projects. This includes, for example, heating and electricity, business-related
driving of all employees (especially ways to work), all vehicles, all
business trips and printed matters.
Our competent and certified partner in compensation is the company Climate partner.
The CO2 emissions generated by all our activities are calculated, and a safety margin of 10 % is added (as a lump sum for small items). At the end of each year, we calculate how much CO2 we have emitted through our business activities. This amount of CO2 is compensated by supporting climate protection projects all over the world.
In order to balance as well the CO2 emissions caused by our products, we have financially compensated the amount generated by all solid bars as well as by all novelties since 2021. Both the raw materials as well as the production and delivery are taken into consideration across all trade levels. We support national and international climate protection projects here as well.
As an additional plus, all solid bars are plastic-free and their recyclable folding boxes to protect the products are made from cellulose obtained from 100 % agricultural waste such as stems and leaves. Please find detailed information in the topic packaging.
We send all our parcels to consumers and retailers via DHL GoGreen. In this process, the greenhouse gases produced by transport to the customer are compensated by climate protection projects worldwide. Of course, we bear the increased costs for shipping that result from this.
You can find out more about the projects on the DHL website: https://www.dpdhl.com/en/sustainability/environment/green-product-portfolio/climate-protection-projects.html.
Our own organic beekeeping
In addition to the climate protection projects already mentioned, we also support the local environment. At our company site, we have eight organic beehives that pollinate the vast Westerwald fields in the surrounding area in spring and summer and provide us with wonderful organic honey. In addition to the private consumption of honey, we also use it as a raw material in various products (e. g. in our Face cleansing foam no.125, in some of our lip care products and also in the series Junge Haut for impure skin).
