The BWB-Group commits itself to reduce its CO2-emissions. With big efforts we engage ourselves for a cleaner environment and a sustainable future. One very important step in this journey is the switch of BWB-Altenrhein's power consumption to sustainable energy sources; 100% of its electric energy needs are now covered with hydro-electric power. Hydropower is a very efficient, climate and environment friendly mean of power generation.

 

BWB-Altenrhein AG can reduce its CO2-emissions by more than 600 tons in that manner.

 

We are aware of our responsibility towards the environment and value the natural resources. The other BWB sites are involved as well: we constantly invest into the renewal of our means of production, so that they correspond to state-of-the-art technology and fulfill high environmental standards.

 

« We want to continuously

improve our performance and

our CO2-efficeiency »

  Norbert Gächter | General Manager BWB-Altenrhein AG

Hydropower is not only renewable and practically CO2-free, but also allows storage of electricity. On average in Switzerland there is about 1240 liters per m2 every year. Extrapolated to the whole area of Switzerland, this amounts to a total precipitation corresponding to the water content of Lake Constance.
 

Actions speak louder than words - this has been a BWB motto for a long time. And with actions we want to keep convincing. Various Swiss factories of the BWB-Group have been certified from «act - cleantech agentur schweiz» and «EnAW» for their efforts in climate protection. We engage in small measures like enhancing the isolation of sealing tanks, but also take on the big steps such as the aforementioned switch to 100% hydropower for BWB-Altenrhein AG.
