The forward-looking concept for efficient enterprises
'All life needs warmth. If there is no direct warmth from the sun, human beings have to provide it. We feel good when we are warm. That’s a fact. At Viessmann we recognise that truth by creating high quality innovative products as part of an overall plan for the future.'
'Efficiency Plus' - our investment for the future
'All mankind fundamentally needs a supply of energy. Without it, there would be no light during the dark hours, no hot meals and no protection against the cold of winter. Heat is fundamental to creating a feeling of wellbeing and is a mark of affluence.
After decades of wastefulness, we are finally coming to realise that energy and other raw materials, as well as mankind's labour, are valuable commodities. We must deploy these resources efficiently, i.e. sustainably, if we want to preserve the standards of our current quality of life for future generations.
At the same time, we are shocked by the predictions issued by climate scientists that the heating of the planet, for which mankind is largely responsible, is progressing much faster than had previously been thought.
Both problems together – the forthcoming shortage of fuel and raw materials plus the threat emanating from the climate change – are probably the greatest challenges facing us today.
However, climate change is no natural event to which we have to succumb without response. Politicians have thrown down an ambitious challenge to combat it – and we can achieve the goals they have set.
With the model 'Efficiency Plus', we want to demonstrate in our facilities the things that any business and any household can actively do to promote climate protection and to reduce their own energy bills. With 'Efficiency Plus', we are demonstrating at our head office in Allendorf that tomorrow's objectives in respect of global warming can be achieved today with technology that is already on the market.
If nothing else, these actions strengthen our competitiveness and secure jobs.'
