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 the sustainability report which is available online the Zedler-Group wants to establish transparency in terms of energy efficiency, social commitment, and other things. In this context Dirk Zedler explains: “The present sustainability report is the beginning of visualising and monitoring our concepts and their realisation in the company in a comprehensible way. There is still a lot to be done for us”. And he adds: “The fact that many sustainable properties are attributed to the bicycle is not enough for us. Our understanding of responsibility goes beyond.”
The report was elaborated by Lea Heinle in cooperation with the managing director. For this purpose, the dual studies student who realises the practical part of her studies at the Zedler-Group regularly records the data of all 70 measuring points installed in the building. The results were prepared by graphic designer Kirsten Kruemmel in an easily comprehensible way; the photos were also taken by the employees.
“On the basis of measured values and key figures the report proves that with their climate-positive building and their overall climate-neutral business operations the Zedler-Group meets the postulated targets of the Paris Agreement 2015 on climate change for the year 2050 already now,” reads a press release.
Recycling management with regard to packaging and commitment to those in need of support has reportedly also been standard in the company’s operations for years. Nevertheless, the next targets are already on the agenda: It is planned to document now the lived purchasing and disposal rules also internally for the employees. “Companies that are customers of our testing services and the technical documentation division or that order expert’s reports can check off their supply chain management in terms of CSR,” says Lea Heinle on behalf of the staff members of Zedler-Institut.
