Since 2020, seven employees with different areas of expertise have been meeting at the Körber site in Markt Schwaben to exchange ideas on the topics of sustainability and environmental protection. Project ideas are regularly discussed, prioritized according to cost and benefit, and implemented step by step in coordination with the management.
Climate change is progressing unabated. The consequences of one of the greatest social challenges of our time have long been felt around the world. “As individuals, but also as employees of a technology group, we have to be aware of our responsibility and promote sustainability in a significant way,” says Oliver Berger, Head of Environmental Protection and Occupational Safety Inspection in the Körber Business Area Pharma at the Markt Schwaben site. As a physical engineer, Berger points to the urgency of increasing sustainable activities and compromising less on environmental protection.
For the past three years, Berger has also been bringing his personal convictions to the Markt Schwaben Environmental Circle, in which he is involved together with six colleagues. The working group’s goal is to create an awareness of environmental protection and sustainability within the company and implement projects that reduce CO₂e emissions, save energy or avoid waste, for example.
