Schöck North America announced that its parent company, Schöck Bauteile GmbH, has entered into a collaborative partnership with Kassel University and ten other companies to become climate neutral by developing pathways for sustainable enterprises.
The project, called “Paths to a Climate-Neutral Company,” identifies opportunities for climate neutrality in operational practice, and develops measurable plans that can be applied by the partner companies. The results will be used to develop guidelines that companies in any industry can use as a model for implementing climate-neutral practices.
The participating companies represent the energy, automotive, chemical, financial services, technology, electronics, and building materials industries.
Completion of the project is expected early in 2023.
“Schöck’s primary focus has always been on the development of structural thermal breaks and other building components that reduce energy consumption, improve building envelope performance and create more comfortable living spaces,” says Tracy Dacko, marketing manager for North America, adding, “Our participation in this program demonstrates not only our commitment to improving the built environment, but to do so in a way that is responsible, sustainable and renewable.”
