Vehicle fleet at Glen Dimplex Deutschland: Starting signal for electromobility.

3 min read
The Kulmbach-based company Glen Dimplex Deutschland stands for sustainability with its products and its entire corporate culture. Now Glen Dimplex is also focusing on environmental and climate protection in the area of mobility. The vehicle fleet is to be successively converted to vehicles with climate-friendly drive systems.

A Skoda Enyaq heralds the turn of the era and drives entirely without fossil fuels. What's more, the electrical energy used to power the vehicle also comes from renewable sources. The company's four charging columns in front of the Glen Dimplex Forum draw their power from one of the photovoltaic systems installed on the roofs of the company's buildings.

“We are thus taking another consistent step toward aligning our company with the requirements of a sustainable world.”

Leiter HR Service - Heiko Martin

Employees' company cars can now also be converted to electric mobility - at better conditions than for combustion cars. Employees also have the opportunity to test the electric car for an initial period of ten days.

"We will continue to invest in electromobility in the future and thus gradually convert our vehicle fleet," Heiko Martin continues.

Glen Dimplex Deutschland makes significant contributions to the most environmentally friendly life and economy as well as sustainable climate protection. Heat pumps and ventilation and cooling systems from GDD help with climate-friendly heating, cooling and ventilation.

“We also work every day to focus even more consistently on the sustainability of our entire process chain, from supply to recycling at the end of a product's life.”

Geschäftsführer Glen Dimplex Deutschland - Clemens Dereschkewitz

Glen Dimplex Deutschland, for example, has also switched the company's energy supply to green electricity from renewable energy sources.

"Even seemingly small activities such as a company-owned bee colony or a new bicycle parking lot including charging facilities for e-bikes pay into the account of a sustainable company," emphasizes CEO Clemens Dereschkewitz.
