We’re going green

WEFA stands for ambitious environmental and climate protection goals. We have been EMAS-certified for over 15 years and we are constantly searching for ways to reduce our ecological footprint. Since 2022, we climate neutral (Scope 1 and 2 based on the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, GHG)".

Our customers also benefit from our climate protection goals as they themselves also strive to become climate neutral. For more information, please contact us at: nachhaltigkeit@wefa.com.

Cogeneration Unit: We cool with heat

We have been operating a cogeneration unit at our Singen site since 2016. This involves a modular structured unit which extracts electrical energy and heat, which is then used to cool the WEFA Inotec and WEFA Singen plants.

Photovoltaics: 100% natural energy

In order to support the advancement of solar energy, we have placed solar panels on much of our available roof space.

Loading Stations: Electricity for our electrical vehicles

WEFA has been actively converting the company fleet to electric, hybrid and hydrogen-powered vehicles since 2019. This has allowed us to already reduce our average CO2 emissions per kilometer by 50%. There are also a number of on-site Wallbox charging stations for the electric vehicles.

Our commitment to the region

At WEFA we believe in giving back to the community. One way we do this is to help people in our region who aren’t quite as fortunate. We have therefore set up long-term partnerships with two organizations that work with at-risk youth in our area, the Therapiehof Hegau in Rielasingen-Worblingen (Germany), and the Eselhof Säge in Buch (Switzerland). Both organizations primarily support children and teenagers with ADHS, autism or victims of trauma using animal-supported therapy. We also support the association Menschen Helfen e. V. which helps people struggling with poverty in the Hegau region around Singen.

In addition, WEFA sponsors a wide range of associations and institutions in the area, including our local soccer team, the FC Singen 04, the city gymnastics club, and the vocational school, the Hohentwiel-Gewerbeschule.
