Company-related Environmental Management
For example, in our headquarters in Minden, Germany we address this challenge through attention to material minimization, recycling, and such measures as roof greening, rainwater processing, and hazardous materials filtering of exhaust air.
At WAGO Corporation (Germantown, WI) we similarly embrace sustainability in a variety of ways including the installation of a wind turbine to supplement our energy usage, the use of LON based WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM products to achieve energy efficiency throughout our buildings, and the implementation of active waste and scrap reclamation recycling measures.
Installation of WAGO wind turbine
Within 25 minutes of installing the turbine at WAGO’s HQ (utilizing a distinctive, hydraulic-driven Tip-up system to raise/lower itself), the three blades were spinning at 600+ RPM already generating power.
