ebm-papst has been a member of the Climate Protection and Energy Efficiency Group of German Industry since 2010. This honour was bestowed on the world market leader for fans and motors for its great environmental commitment. This reflects on ebm-papst's achievements in the field of energy efficiency and climate protection.

"Climate-protection companies are role models and pioneers for other organisations. They show that climate protection pays," explains Prof. Hans Heinrich Driftmann.

The "Climate-Protection Companies" are selected by the German Federal Government and the German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DIHK) as ambassadors of energy efficiency and climate protection on account of their outstanding achievements in the field of corporate energy efficiency. To achieve their ambitious climate-protection targets, they have not only aligned their products and production processes to energy-efficiency, they have also fully involved their employees in this process.

"I am extremely proud of the fact that the measures we have taken to date in the field of environmental protection have been honoured with this membership," explains Hans-Jochen Beilke, Chairman of the Board of Managing Directors of the ebm-papst Group. "We have achieved a great deal with our green company philosophy. We shall continue to strive for further improvement," continues Beilke.
