Title: Changeover of Energy Supply to Renewable Energy Sources at Hipp
In terms of climate protection, great effort was vested by Prof. Dr. Claus Hipp in trend setting. The Hipp company leads the way in Bavaria’s environmental pact as well as in the whole nation. The exemplary effect affects not only the whole company, but also the growing awareness concerning energy utilization of its employees, suppliers and costumers. By reducing energy consumption drastically and changing to renewable energy sources, Prof. Dr. Hipp once again set trends in entrepreneurial protection of the environment. The company leads in realizing extensive environmental protection projects and therefore serves as an example to German industry. Hipp managed to decrease energy consumption and to change to renewable energy sources through extensive measures. From 2000 to 2005, CO2 output was reduced by 95%, from 10,776 tons to 614 tons.
