Sustainability and green IT have become integral parts of the strategy due to AKDB’s social responsibility.

By 2025, AKDB wants to become CO2-neu­tral in its direct emis­sions. The pre­req­ui­sites for this are the con­ver­sion to 100 per­cent green elec­tric­i­ty that has already tak­en place and the future expan­sion of pho­to­volta­ic sys­tems on all AKDB prop­er­ties used by AKDB itself. Prepa­ra­tions are being made at all loca­tions to set up vehi­cle charg­ing infra­struc­tures for employ­ees and visitors.

The vehi­cle fleet of the AKDB is grad­u­al­ly being con­vert­ed to hybrid or ful­ly elec­tric vehi­cles. In order to fur­ther reduce cli­mate-dam­ag­ing emis­sions, AKDB is switch­ing from fos­sil heat­ing sys­tems to dis­trict heat­ing fed with geot­her­mal ener­gy, will mod­ern­ize exist­ing heat­ing sys­tems and switch to LED light­ing through­out the company.
