The year everything was different… but also greener 12 February 2021

In mid-October Lederer GmbH planted 500 trees with the ‘PLANT-MY-TREE®’ initiative to contribute to sustainability under the motto ‘every tree counts’.

With uncertainty surrounding 2020 Lederer began looking for the opportunities in every challenge, pledging greater resources to its energy transition, as well as sustainability and climate protection. 500 sustainable tree plantings were therefore planted on behalf of the company with a planned project duration of more than 99 years in Utscheid, Rheinland-Palatinate in the southern Eifel. During this time, there will be no deforestation or economic use of the area. Lederer also confirmed that it has been using 100% green electricity since January 2020. With this decision the company wanted to live up to its ecological and economic responsibility as a major consumer of electrical energy and make a further contribution to climate and environmental protection.

With an annual consumption of around 1 million kWh, the emission of almost 400 tonnes of carbon dioxide can be avoided by Lederer moving to 100% green electricity. “In contrast to many other providers, who always supply coal and nuclear power in addition to the statutory minimum share of green electricity, our new partner, LichtBlick SE from Hamburg, actually provides us with 100% green electricity,” explains Lederer. “By partnering with Germany’s largest provider of renewable energy, we are one of many thousands of companies that is actively involved in the energy revolution.”

Lederer supplies high-quality fasteners made of stainless steel including screws, nuts and bolts from an optimally equipped warehouse with more than 25,000 articles. These articles are all available in stock from its webshop.
