On January 1, 2021, DAHLEM received the ÖKOPROFIT® Company 2021 award. Environment Minister Ursula Heinen-Esser, Mayor Kufen of Essen and around 50 participants met in Zoom as the ÖKOPROFIT® awards were presented virtually for the first time in all of Germany. As a participant in the project, DAHLEM has been implementing numerous in-house measures since 2018 to protect the environment while cutting costs: Reducing electricity and water consumption, introducing e-mobility with cars and bicycles, and much more. The ÖKOPROFIT® Essen-Ruhrgebiet project (Ecological Project for Integrated Environmental Technology) was launched in 2002 by the City of Essen to help companies and institutions establish a feasible environmental management system. "For us, the measures implemented achieved a great record of success. It's good to realize that you can implement many measures for the environment with little effort and at the same time increase the acceptance of environmental protection," says Dipl.-Ing. Markus Küppers enthusiastically.
