Green Globe today announces recertification of atelier damböck near Munich, Germany. The internationally-acclaimed full service fair stand construction company was one of the first in its industry to be awarded the Green Globe Certificate for its sustainability achievements.
For more than 30 years, atelier damböck has been operating with the goal of reconciling environmental protection, creative design and high-end exhibition construction. The office building from 2002 was designed under the premise of sustainable energy usage, with workplaces with maximum amount of natural light, centrally controlled lighting and a remarkable heating system: 90 percent of the heat energy required is provided by pellet heating – fuelled by the pellets the company creates itself from waste wood.
In 2011 atelier damböck achieved another milestone and implemented a solar panel complex on the rooftop of the office building, which is one of the region’s biggest non-commercial solar plants.
Green Globe Certification’s CEO, Guido Bauer, said, “atelier damböck’s achievements, creativity and commitment should be applauded as one-of-its-kind. One of the recent ecological improvements is a water biotope, a living space for plants and animals, measuring 100 square meters on the company premises. The company also has holding tanks to collect rainwater used to irrigate lawns and plants and to clean the vehicle fleet. Harmful substances are filtered off so they don’t find their way into the sewage system or groundwater. And the company aims to avoid waste whenever possible through paper saving and recycling, responsible handling and recycling of raw materials, a modular approach when planning exhibition stands which allows use individual building elements more often, and strong reusable packaging crates.”
