All-electric smarts for even more sustainability: Wortmann Group offers attractive leasing model for employees and customers. The Detmold-based family business has long been working on its carbon footprint and has already taken various steps in the past to minimize resource consumption.

This year alone, two major projects were launched that together bind 500 tons of CO2: The installation of the soccer field-sized photovoltaic system on the roofs of the company’s headquarters and the support of the reforestation of the Teutoburg Forest with €125,000 over the next five years.

Wortmann is also recognized by the public as acting sustainably. Together with the Tamaris brand, the company was recently awarded the “Germany’s Best – Sustainability” award. The study, which was conducted by Focus Money, examined the sustainability reputation of 24,000 companies in Germany.

Together with the ANWR group, another sustainable project has now been implemented, which not only benefits the environment, but also the company’s own employees and customers. 80 climate-friendly, fully electronic smarts were purchased, which could be leased by all interested employees and customers as part of a complete and financially extremely attractive package. In addition to a special price, the offer also includes a full-service clause that covers repairs and inspections for the entire leasing period of two years.

Jens Beining, Managing Partner and CEO of Wortmann Schuh-Holding KG: “As a company, we work hard for an ecological footwear footprint on various levels. In addition to the sustainable requirements of our product, we are continuously achieving new milestones that help us to improve our impact on the environment – this also includes the topic of electric mobility.

We are now pleased to be able to offer a great and, above all, future-oriented solution here.” The offer is completed by twelve charging stations, which were already installed in the parking lots around the company’s headquarters some time ago. The electricity from the charging stations is green electricity, which is purchased from the Detmold public utility company.In addition to all customers of the factory
outlet, the employees’ vehicles can now also be easily charged.

With an average way to work of around 17 km the smart fleet can save a further 1.3 tons of CO2 with the help of the company’s own employees. This commitment will further reduce the company’s CO2 footprint.
