Our contributions and goals
for a green future
Our planet is a fragile ecosystem with a multitude of natural cycles, animals, plants – and us. We can only create a sustainable future by learning from nature. We must not take more than we can give back. To achieve this goal, we must protect natural cycles and close material cycles.
Humans and nature – in harmony?
The soil, water and air are important components of our ecosystem. But they are exposed to all manner of stress and pollution from human use. The increasing consumption of land has resulted in soil sealing in our landscape. The loss of natural topsoil results in the disappearance of a crucial habitat for biodiversity which is provided by plants, insects and microorganisms. The natural water cycle is interrupted. Precious tree populations and natural green spaces are disappearing. Furthermore, this impacts the quality of life due to heat, particulate matter and exhaust fumes in the air of our towns and cities, as well as artificial gray backdrops.
Our vision – A world with green cities, clean air, permeable soil, as well as groundwater of good quality. The temperature in cities is regulated as rainwater is absorbed and subsequently released, as if by a sponge. At the same time, this helps reduce flooding. Particulate matter and CO2 are absorbed and transformed by soil life, plants and trees. Green roofs, facades and parking spaces as well as the planting of trees fill our view with color. They provide us with quality of life and closeness to nature. Let us work together to create a green planet using sustainable products that integrate nature’s cycles instead of disrupting them. A better future – for our future generations
