"We seek dialogue with you."

Our com­pa­ny is always on the move.

The blog is undoub­ted­ly among the most con­ve­ni­ent forms of modern com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on. At Klasmann-Deilmann, we use our blog to sha­re our thoughts with our part­ners and fri­ends; custo­mers and sup­pliers; our active, for­mer and future employees; and (in the broa­dest sen­se) our sta­ke­hol­ders – in a time­ly man­ner and at an appro­pria­te inten­si­ty. And we’ve a lot to say. Our com­pa­ny is always on the move and we want you to be a part of this.

We look for­ward to your feed­back: do send us an e-mail or use our com­ments func­tion. We’ll also be gra­te­ful for any ide­as as to topics you’d be inte­rested in rea­ding about.


Sci­en­ti­fic stu­dy: Peat extrac­tion cau­ses lower emis­si­ons than expec­ted

16.05.2018 | Aut­hor: Jan Köb­bing | 0 Com­ments
Klasmann-Deilmann com­mis­sio­ned and con­duc­ted a stu­dy that invol­ved moni­to­ring of emis­si­ons from peat­land over a two-year peri­od in accord­ance with sci­en­ti­fic cri­te­ria. It emer­ged that raw-mate­­ri­als extrac­tion results in a con­s­i­der­ab­ly smal­ler quan­ti­ty of green­hou­se gas emis­si­ons per annum than assu­med so far. The figu­re for average emis­si­ons that the com­pa­ny had pre­vious­ly used, based on data from the lite­ra­tu­re, was 10.73 t CO2e per hec­ta­re, per annum. In actu­al fact, howe­ver, the mean annu­al emis­si­ons asso­cia­ted with black peat are 3.13 t CO2e per hec­ta­re; tho­se Read more

From the fac­to­ry gate to the custo­mer The first part (hier Link zum ers­ten Teil: Von der Flä­che bis zum Werks­tor) of the arti­cle on our value chain descri­bes what hap­pens to the peat bet­ween extrac­tion site and fac­to­ry gate. Part 2 now looks at the trans­port and logistics aspects and descri­bes the finis­hed substrate’s rou­te from the fac­to­ry gate to the custo­mer. 40,000 trucks, 2300 rail­way wagons, 100 ships and 8800 con­tai­ners: the­se are the loads that Klasmann-Deilmann ship­ped to Read more

World Intel­lec­tu­al Pro­per­ty Day The cor­po­ra­te histo­ry of Klasmann-Deilmann shows that it real­ly is pos­si­ble to reinvent oneself, time and again. Our inven­ti­ve spi­rit and crea­ti­vi­ty have repeated­ly stee­red the com­pa­ny in new direc­tions. Whe­ther inven­ti­ons in the field of mecha­ni­cal engi­nee­ring or new deve­lop­ments, such as mar­ke­ting peat as ani­mal lit­ter, or the crea­ti­on of spe­cial pur­po­se substrates – the com­pa­ny has never stood still. To mark World Intel­lec­tu­al Pro­per­ty Day, the fol­lo­wing arti­cle high­lights some of our inge­nious Read more

Cli­ma­te check at the com­pa­ny Peop­le who know how to save ener­gy or use it effi­ci­ent­ly and who pay atten­ti­on to the cli­ma­te as con­su­mers and with regard to food and mobi­li­ty can help to pro­tect the cli­ma­te. The ear­lier peop­le beco­me awa­re of this topic, the bet­ter. That is why Klasmann-Deilmann is again taking part in the cam­pai­gn to have trai­nees qua­li­fy as cli­ma­te pilots.

Alli­an­ce for Sustai­na­bi­li­ty: “We’re part of it!”

09.04.2018 | Aut­hor: Kim Karotki | 0 Com­ments
Klasmann-Deilmann is com­mit­ted to eco­lo­gi­cal, eco­no­mi­c­al and soci­al sustai­na­bi­li­ty “Wir sind dabei” (English: “We’re part of it!”) That’s the ID ban­ner of Lower Saxony’s Alli­an­ce for Sustai­na­bi­li­ty. What’s more, Klasmann-Deilmann is now also ent­it­led to make this claim, as our com­mit­ment ful­fils all the cri­te­ria. At the end of 2017, Lower Saxony’s Alli­an­ce for Sustai­na­bi­li­ty (NAN) laun­ched the pro­ject “We’re part of it!” as a means of iden­ti­fy­ing sustain­ab­le com­pa­nies in Lower Sax­o­ny. Com­pa­nies in Lower Sax­o­ny may use the ID Read more
