Ecological Guided Tour

Schmalz established an ecological guided tour in 2003 to inform the public about the variety of measures implemented. Schmalz presents these environmental protection measures on guided tours and encourages interested companies and private individuals to follow suit. In 2009, the ecological guided tour was named the ”Selected Landmark of 2009” by the ”Germany – Land of Ideas” initiative. Registration and further information:

Electric Car in the Car Fleet

Schmalz has set a goal of gradually converting its car fleet to cars that use environmentally-friendly technologies. The company also arranged a day about electric mobility in July 2012. On this day employees and their families were able to test various electric cars and get detailed information about them. Schmalz has had an electric car in its car fleet since January 2013 so that further options for converting the entire car fleet can be tested. Schmalz has thereby taken on an additional leading role in matters of environmental protection.
