Burger takes responsibility and attaches utmost priority to addressing climate protection. The aim is not only to reduce CO2 emissions but to offset them in full and beyond. We can verify that we help the environment far beyond common standards which is why burger is certified as a particularly climate-positive company. Our furniture also carries Germany's best-known environmental label, the Blue Angel. We only use low-emission lacquers and wood-based materials from sustainably managed forests. Most of our suppliers come from our region and operate with environmental standards comparable to those of our own. Paper-saving digitised processes and climate-friendly logistics with EURO 6 lorries, hybrid vehicles and our own in-house recharging stations are key elements of our sustainability concept.
Our furniture carries the Blue Angel label. Because the wood-based materials come from sustainable forestry, are produced and processed with low emissions and are harmless to health.
The baumann group has worked out its carbon footprint in cooperation with Fokus Zukunft GmbH & Co. KG. The figure identified was based on 2020. The carbon footprint of our operating bases comes in at a total of 9,200 tonnes. By purchasing 40,000 certificates (1 certificate equates to 1 tonne of CO²) to support 5 projects for the 2020, 2021 and 2022, the baumann-group has more than fully offset its carbon footprint.
The management and the entire team have set themselves the goal of preserving an intact environment for future generations. This is how we make a reliable contribution to protecting our climate.
Our company group holds PEFC certification. This guarantees that the raw materials for our kitchen and bathroom furniture only come from sustainably managed forests.
