Around 40% of our patent applications relate to environmental protection and the careful use of resources. Today, our home appliances are amongst the most efficient and economical in the world. That's good for the environment and for your wallet.
With Green Technology inside, we're flying the flag for sustainability.
For us, waste isn't just rubbish.
Collecting and separating the production waste in our factories is a matter of course. And now we also recycle 92% of it.
Ingeniously packed, efficiently transported.
We save resources on transport, too. For example, we pack our dishwashers so efficiently that we can now transport even more products at the same time. This not only reduces packaging matieral, it also saves on fuel and thereby cuts CO2 emissions.
We don't do things by halves. Except when it comes to saving water.
Have you ever tried to halve your water consumption? We have. Since 1990, we've been able to cut the water consumption of our appliances by more than half.
Discover some simple ways of protecting the environment!
Use a pressure cooker for everything that takes longer than 20 minutes to cook in a traditional saucepan, such as potatoes or stews. That way, you'll cut your energy use by up to 30%. And your meals will be ready much faster.
Switch off the oven a few minutes before the meal is ready. The heat of the oven will do the rest on its own.
Avoid opening the oven door. Because even if you just check your roast briefly, around 10% of the heat inside will be lost.
