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.

Transparency in the company

Ludwigsburg - As one of the first companies of the cycle industry the Zedler-Group presents a Sustainability Report. It provides orientation for customers, suppliers and employees.

For this report, student Lea Heinle (on the left), (...) regularly recorded the data of all 70 measuring points installed in the building. The results were edited by graphic designer Kirsten Kruemmel.

The Zedler-Group presents its first sustainability report. The report analyses and documents how resource-saving and Co2-neutral they have already been working in the past years.

“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”, declares managing director Dirk Zedler 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.”

According to a statement of the group, the sustainability report would offer transparency in terms of energy efficiency and social commitment to customers, suppliers, employees and partners of the house.

The report was elaborated by Lea Heinle in cooperation with the managing director. For this purpose, the student who realises the practical part of her studies at the Zedler-Group regularly recorded the data of all 70 measuring points installed in the building. The results were edited by graphic designer Kirsten Kruemmel.

On the basis of measured values and key figures the report proves that with its climate-positive building and its overall climate-neutral business operations the Zedler-Group meets already now the postulated targets of the Paris Agreement 2015 on climate change for the year 2050. Recycling management with regard to packaging and commitment to those in need of support has also been standard in the company’s operations for years.

And the next targets are already on the agenda: It is planned to document the purchasing and disposal rules also internally for the employees.

Testing systems from Ludwigsburg provide assistance for new developments to international and national manufacturers. In the company own test laboratories of the Zedler-Group quality, stiffness and service strength tests are carried out for customers from all over the world.
