Commitment to environment
As a media business, paper remains an indispensable commodity for us, even in this era of increasing digitalisation. This is why we make responsible use of the natural resource it is made from.
Only use wood from verifiably well-managed and credibly certified forestry is utilised. 70 percent of the paper we use is recycling paper. For high-circulation publications like LZ, HORIZONT and AHGZ and many others, we use “Charisma Silk” – a type of paper that is 100 percent recycled and also produced completely without harmful chemicals and bleaching agents. The inks used for printing are readily biodegradable.
But also in other areas, dfv media group relies on environmentally sound practices. For example, all our employees receive an allowance for their train tickets and are encouraged to travel on business by train, whenever possible. Before purchasing new office equipment, we assess each item with regard to its level of sustainability and our green areas on site are partially irrigated by a rainwater tank.
