In order to offset these emissions, in 2016 Gira actively supported several climate protection projects with the help of natureOffice. These included the reforestation project around the town of Werdohl in the Sauerland region of Germany, which we have already sponsored in previous years. In 2007, this nature conservation area was hit by cyclone Kyrill which left a trail of devastation behind it.
Reducing material consumption In addition, we have been working with the specialists from interseroh for more than 15 years to evaluate our transport and sales packaging and to highlight its environmental impacts. In this area we now rely entirely on recycled materials and have completely stopped our use of paints and harmful printing inks. We are also reducing the volume and material consumption of our packaging, because here less is most definitely more.
