Buschjost honoured for its energy commitment: 10 percent energy saving

At Buschjost GmbH, commitment to the environment goes without saying. To investigate where energy can be saved has now become an integral part of day-to day business activities.

In order to take energy saving to the next level, the company joined a project by Energie Impuls OWL at the beginning of the year. A total of 24 OWL companies, including Buschjost, make up the Learning Energy Efficiency Network (LEEN) which is scientifically supported by the Fraunhofer ISI. As part of this project, Buschjost has agreed to save 10 percent of energy within three years.

The companies have now been awarded for their commitment as part of the EnergieArena congress. German Environment Minister Norbert Röttgen had signed the documents in advance which were awarded to the 24 model enterprises by district president Marianne Thomann-Stahl and coordinator of LEEN, Ursula Mielicke, at Fraunhofer ISI.

The district president highlighted the companies' unique culture of cooperation: "Following our above-average expansion of renewable energies in recent years, we will now focus on the development of intelligent, energy-efficient machinery and production processes in the next phase." 

Throughout the intense process of increasing energy efficiency and reducing energy costs, the Learning Energy Efficiency Networks have been supported by the Chambers of Industry and Commerce of East Westphalia and Lippe, as well as regional energy providers E.ON Westfalen Weser Vertrieb and municipal utility companies in Bad Salzuflen, Bielefeld, Detmold, Gütersloh and Lemgo.
