By using its own solar energy system and energy-efficient lighting, the children’s home’s CO2 emissions are reduced by around 17 tons a year. The institution also saves a lot of money, which can now benefit the children. Now there is more budget for education, supplies and furnishings. The children’s increased awareness of the environment is another positive effect: Right from the start, they experience the value of renewable energies and learn to live sustainably and environmentally consciously, so they become little saviors of the future along the way. “This shows that every little bit can have a great impact,” explains Röhrig. “Because the energy and resource savings not only benefit the environment but also the children’s home.” A success for the children and our environment – not only on World Environment Day.
