Commitment to Environmental Protection and Cost-Effectiveness

We want to conserve resources, utilise environmentally friendly energy yet minimise our energy consumption on the whole, reduce CO2 emissions, avoid waste and execute our logistics ecologically. As a result, since 2008 it has been possible for us to reduce the consumption of electricity in our production facilities by two percent per year. Since the beginning of 2015 all of our facilities in Germany have been supplied with 100 percent green electricity from completely renewable energy sources, enabling us to lower our CO2 emissions by an additional three percent per kg of processed tea by the end of 2018. Other resources, such as water, are secondary for us, as they are hardly used at all in the production process. 

The LSH, as the parent holding, obliges all parts of the company to follow resource-saving practices:
