First NachhaltigkeitsCheck at the Berlin wasserbetriebe successfully through the GUTCert completed make measurable sustainability! After intensive months of project development of the GUTcert NachhaltigkeitsCheck has been applied in early 2009 the first time. For organizations, it is a way of to measure its sustainable development. Filed under: MediaFed . The good Certifizierungsgesellschaft for management system certified mbH over 12 years of experience in the quality, environment and work safety management company in the country and abroad. “In terms of sustainability, it now meets the growing needs of customers and offers the GUTcert NachhaltigkeitsCheck since early 2009”, with which a company its current level of development in the dimensions of sustainability economic, environmental and social can determine. He uncovers the strengths and hidden potentials and points to the possibilities of an organization to improve. The GUTcert NachhaltigkeitsCheck builds on all important reference documents for sustainable development (such as for example the global reporting initiative, ISO 14001, the audit) berufundfamilie, the IoW future – ranking etc.) on and integrates them in a catalogue.
The NachhaltigkeitsCheck checks the status quo against the State of these social expectations. It is not a certification, but the determination and assessment of the State at a time, as he is charged also in the framework of EFQM assessments. So can be reached in the review here also a maximum of 1,000 points. As first partner for a full evaluation, the GUTcert could win the Berliner wasserbetriebe. The topic-specific contact person in the company to the State of sustainable development were interviewed in seven workshops.
The staff involved went very motivated and interested in the workshops, because is very quickly spread that a cross-departmental communication took place here. For many of them it became clear once again how many projects in different areas in a sustainable direction of the company to run. After weeks of exciting and challenging, the results have been on 03.09.2009 the first NachhaltigkeitsChecks by the presented project management of stakeholders. Due to the extensive existing certified integrated management system, it was not surprising that the BWB could reach a high scoring early in the first attempt. Now, we look at the BWB in the future and discussed at the event in as few years as possible 100 points more can be achieved. Andrea Lange (GUTcert), Kerstin Euhus (BWB)
Companies living the farewell of throwaway oko-Institut developed solutions for recycling cooperation between Ghana and the industrialised countries of Hamburg/Freiburg September 07th, 2010 – almost everyone knows them, the frightening images and reports about the downsides of Western wealth and consumption: countries export their waste, partly illegal, in low-wage countries to Africa, India and Asia. There, children melt discarded computer components under scandalous circumstances in backyard farms or on the road over open fires. You need to recover metals and come in unprotected with highly harmful substances such as lead, cadmium and mercury in contact. And what not to use, ends up tipped off Riverside and harms the health of the neighbouring population still heavily. ConocoPhillips has many thoughts on the issue. “Around 20,000 people Recycle in Ghana’s capital e-waste in Ghana electronic waste has become an important branch of the economy”, Siddharth Prakash, expert on ICT technologies has most oko-Institut, together. Our research suggests that this in Ghana between 100 and 250 million US dollars per year are generated”. Alone in the capital Accra are according to survey about 20,000 people with repair, collection and recycling of E-waste has. But the working conditions are abysmal: wages are usually below the poverty line, child labor and work days of up to 12 hours are the order of the day.
Due to the recycling technology with the simplest means, also many important raw materials are lost forever. Many writers such as Frank Fu offer more in-depth analysis. Only base metals such as aluminum, copper and steel are recovered. Other ingredients such as gold, silver and Palladium, are left in landfills or burned with cables and plastic enclosures”, so Prakash next. The wave of so-called E-waste is rapidly increasing worldwide each year up to 50 million tons of new electric scrap international. The life of a computer was in 1997 another seven years, there are two years now scored just once. Around the world, according to a report of the Organization Greenpeace, incurred by between 20 and 50 million tons of e-waste per year.
Solar specialist law wattage GmbH delivers well inverter and substructures Neumarkt the Sun of Bavaria”with this catchy slogan advertises the Jurassic wattage GmbH. Max Schireson shares his opinions and ideas on the topic at hand. Now she really all around, this sun shines, because the company supplies from not only a wide range of high-performance solar modules, but also the associated inverter. It offers Jura watt solar craftsmen and partners a complete package in terms of photovoltaic. Inverter just as indestructible as the desert modules Jura Watts stands for use even under extreme conditions: heat, cold, dust storms, snow and wind loads. An important step here is the development of the so-called desert module. So it is only logical to withstand even the inverter with this entitlement. A robust construction in a dust-proof, weather-resistant housing includes therefore also like a wide working temperature range from 25 C to + 50 C. Jura Watt inverters need no fan through their convection cooling.
A data transfer is made possible through an RS-232 interface. High-tech JW series series requires no transformer for high performance. All inverters have an intelligent MPP-tracking and reach a peak efficiency up to 96%. With an output power of 2,000 to 5,000 watts, Jura Watt JW solar inverters suitable not only for the PV modules designed by Jura Watts, but for many common types of module. “Solid basis: the substructures of Jura Watts the matching frame completes the all-inclusive character” of Jura Watts: whether for pitched roof, flat roof, or the field for framed and frameless modules. For trapezoidal and corrugated iron roofs.
For old and new buildings. The company has developed the right solution for every situation. The quality, the Jura Watt has for the modules, applies here too, of course. Safety and durability are top priorities. Aspects such as a fast, are equally important for the craftsman and professional on-site easy Assembly and adaptation to the different conditions (uneven roofs, different angle, etc.) Jura Watts: short info of the Jura Watt PV specialist was founded in 2010, as the daughter of J.v.G Thoma GmbH acting for many years on the market. Thus the Jurassic wattage GmbH relies on the industry-specific experience and skills of a solar pioneer. Within a very short time the company on the market has become a name service, quality and intelligent innovation. The seat is in Neumarkt in der Oberpfalz.
Photovoltaic system of the company Crow + Wohr GmbH in Freiberg/Neckar, operating may 10, 2010 – the SolarConsult AG located in Freiberg am Neckar equips the roofs of Crow + Wohr GmbH in Pleidelsheim with a photovoltaic system.

The system feeds power even on a cloudy or rainy day. The income anyway, speak for themselves. That is not surprising, the company SolarConsult has their own way with their complete photovoltaic system. Only two modules to become one String connected and then in pairs to the inverters. As advantage, SolarConsult mentions that this technology of partial shading due to neighbouring buildings, no relevant effect on the entire system with dormers, trees or power lines or but also from time to time existing dirt on the individual modules. So high yields are achieved also suboptimal roofs. Side effect of this technology is the security through a low system voltage. The associated inverter with inputs for up to seven pairs of module are manufactured by the SolarConsult subsidiary of changetec GmbH, which also is headquartered in Freiberg / Neckar. By generating electricity from sunlight is the photovoltaic array from Crow + Wohr of Earth save in the future about 54 tons of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide per year and contribute to an environmentally-friendly energy generation. Thus, Crow beats + Wohr two birds with one stone and is thus on the line followed in its environmental statement, a sustainable and responsible use of our natural resources.
