All about bicycles, electric-assisted bikes, technology and safety in the press

In our daily work as we deal with bicycle safety, technology and user manuals we come across lots of safety risks. The most frequent ones are published in articles of the leading German special-interest magazines TOUR – Europas Rennrad-Magazin Nr. 1, BIKE – Das Mountainbike Magazin Europas Nr. 1 and E-Bike – Das Pedelec-Magazin to make this information important for the sector accessible to a wider public.

For many years now the Eurobike Show Daily accompanying the annual international Eurobike Show has given us the opportunity to publish our perspective on major developments in the cycle industry in full-page articles.

We also speak regularly in independent lectures about all topics relating to bicycle technology and bicycle market. In addition, we are regularly cited by further special-interest magazines or trade journals as well as more and more by radio and television and in their media reports, which shows us that we are completely right with our information. The section NEWS informs you about the latest news from our specialist fields. The reports and publications of this section are listed chronologically or according to topics of interest.

With hundreds of large and small-scale measures, which have been steadily developed over the past 25 years, the realised sustainability concept convinced the top-class jury of the federal state Baden-Wuerttemberg and awarded the Business Award for the Environment to the Zedler-Group last week.

The intelligent use of process waste heat, the exclusive reuse of used packaging material, a building insulation made of recycled paper, leakage detection of the compressed air system, cistern water for toilet flushing, 48 percent of self-generated electricity, recycled plastic instead of concrete, unsealed courtyard areas, an all-year share of cycle traffic above 70 percent. Herewith the Zedler-Group substantiated their consistent eco-friendliness to the top-class jury in the category "Trade and Services” with the biggest number of best nominees.

“My team and I are absolutely happy to receive this prestigious award and especially recognition in our issues of the heart, i.e. sustainability and climate protection”, says Dirk Zedler. A few months ago, in the course of certification by the German Sustainable Building Council, the Zedler-Institute has already been able to prove that climate-positive commercial buildings are just as possible as climate-neutral business operations without certificate trading.

The prize was awarded via video. From minute 43:17 on in the recorded live stream you see the video of the Zedler-Group and the Minister’s laudatory speech.
