Sustainability anchors deeply in the corporate philosophy of Hämmerle Kaffee. As a company with great responsibility, Hämmerle hosts and organizes several campaigns concerning sustainability each year. An important part of sustainability is the reduction of the environmental pollution. Thus, in 2013 we focused on the sun as source of energy for our on-site production.
Fit and motivated employees contribute very much to the success of a company. Therefore, we like to keep our employees healthy and so we offer them fresh apples for free every day.
Homemade power supply
Sustainability and environmental protection are major issues for Hämmerle Kaffee. So, in 2013 a photovoltaic system with 705 m² was installed on the roof of the company. “We cannot only talk about environmental protection, we also have to act”, is the maxim of GM Markus Hämmerle. 102 kWp solar power, which equals the energy consumption of thirty single-family homes, are produced by our photovoltaic system. Thus, the annual solar power covers a majority of the company’s energy demands.
Any possible surplus is fed into public electricity. “Thanks to our photovoltaic system we can save approximately 89 tons of CO2 each year”, reports Markus Hämmerle.
