Mission and Vision
Environmental damages, accelerated climate change and military conflicts over scarce resources are the consequences of national economies, meeting their energy needs with conventional technologies. ABO Wind is one of the pioneers, who started in 1996 to work on reforming the energy sector. The wind farms we have erected so far prevent the emission of 600.000 tons of carbon dioxide each year. This considerable success is rather moderate, given the global threat of climate change and the, despite all the world-wide programs, continuous growth of CO² emission levels. Management and employees of ABO Wind are convinced that the efforts to reduce greenhouse gases still have to be considerably increased. We want to contribute to this effort.
According to our understanding of responsible business practices, economic success and ecological benefit are mutually dependant. Our team combines idealism with realism and know-how. We are market-oriented. Prudent mercantile behavior, accuracy in planning and ethical-ecological responsibility characterize ABO Wind. Our employees are highly motivated and qualified. They are working self-reliantly and keep the welfare of the company in mind.
For us, the maximization of profit is no end in itself. We pursue business models which are profitable and at the same time answer the goal of preventing further acceleration of climate change. Aside from wind power as our core business, we see the greatest potential for reaching this goal in the use of biomass energy.
