Investing in nature is very worthwhile
Currently, KAMPF is busy digging and gardening. Teams of gardeners are planting native, site-appropriate trees on the entire company premises. The 100th anniversary of the company is casting its shadow – and therefore exactly 100 trees find their new place.
The company management’s primary concern with this investment is not to “dress up” the headquarters for the festivities in September this year. Rather, they want to set an example of sustainability and the preservation of biodiversity. Consequently, wildflower meadows and so-called insect hotels round off the tree planting campaign. In a few years, employees will benefit from the more attractive environment, especially during the warmer season, when they spend their breaks outdoors. And last but not least, the location design is the company’s figurehead, which customers will notice, when visiting the headquarters in Wiehl. The forest around the company premises has suffered severely in the recent past due to storms, bark beetles and drought. That is another good reason to reforest for the next 100 years.
