Planet Tree

Planet Tree

Together with our partner Planet Tree, we planted a contingent of 250 trees in the forest of Alzenau, Bavaria, thus contributing to regional reforestation. Since its launch in October 2020, Planet Tree has been supporting the reforestation of our local woodlands. Several thousand trees have been planted since then and with the support of private individuals and companies, more are being planted every day.

Truly green electricity with Polarstern

We obtain the electricity for our offices from the Munich-based energy provider Polarstern. It offers electricity as it should be: 100 % green energy, 100 % from a German hydroelectric power plant, rated "very good" by Öko-Test and certified with the Grüner Strom label. Polarstern is not backed by a large corporation, but by an independent regional provider.

Cafe

Coffee from the Murnauer Kaffeerösterei

Work and coffee almost always go hand in hand. Our coffee comes from a local supplier - the Murnauer Kaffeerösterei. The roastery relies on a direct trade philosophy by building trusting partnerships directly with the coffee farmers. The coffee beans grow in an environmentally friendly way and are processed in an equally environmentally responsible way. Regenerative energy sources ensure the lowest possible CO2 emissions.
