Certified climate experts Fokus Zukunft GmbH certified Zeller + Gmelin as “Climate Neutral Company 2020” after determining its carbon footprint. The organisation, located in the Stuttgart Chamber of Commerce and Industry, identified additional potential for cutting emissions with the respected and value-generating KEFF-Check.
“After a very intensive process, we’ve determined the carbon footprint of the Eislingen site and all other subsidiaries at the site. Thanks to various energy-saving projects, we’ve already been able to significantly minimise our CO2 values,“ explains graduate engineer Gülen Ak, who as Head of Quality, Environmental and Energy Management is also responsible for sustainability and climate neutrality.

The company, which specialises in lubricants, printing inks and chemicals, has been officially “climate neutral” since January. This includes its entire office, production and storage facilities, as well as all 549 employees at the Eislingen headquarters, plus the Südöl companies Mineralöl Raffinerie and Südöl-Umwelt-Recycling, and ZG Fluidmanagement. The remaining C02 values were offset by climate certificates, with Zeller + Gmelin supporting sustainable climate protection projects in developing and emerging countries.
