From India to Brazil: Around World Clean-up Day 2022, the world's largest bottom-up citizen movement to eliminate pollution and waste, REHAU organized clean-up events at 30 locations worldwide to contribute to a cleaner environment across the group. Over 1,000 employees took part and jointly collected around 32.5 tons of waste.
Taking responsibility and giving something back to future generations - that is REHAU's maxime as a sus-tainable family company. In cooperation with the German World Clean-up Day association "Let's Do It Germany", the company therefore called on its international sites to organise local clean-up events from 1st to 17th September. The campaign was organised and freely designed by local employees. The events varied widely and ranged from office clean-ups to bus trips to heavily contaminated sites to tidy them up. Participants were equipped with protective equipment such as gloves, gripping arms and high-visibility vests. With their events, the sites took part in an internal competition in which, for example, the team that collects the most waste or presents the most unusual found object gets awarded. A total of 1,000 employees worldwide took part in the campaigns and collected over 32.5 tons of waste.
"We are overwhelmed by the commitment and motivation we see. With this initiative, we have not only committed ourselves to a cleaner environment, but also strengthened the team spirit of our employees around the world," says Dominik Scharnagl, Director Group Projects.
30 REHAU locations around the world took part in the campaign. Several Indian locations also participated with an event.
From car tyres to sewing machines: A total of 32.5 tons of waste was collected and professionally disposed of, as here at the Erlangen site.
