The difficulties we face:

We as the company Foto Koch, try to optimize the processes we have influence on and make them more sustainable. One difficulty is that we have no influence on the production of the products. Thereby we try to influence the industry with our means and give them our input. Especially in the technology sector, it is difficult to achieve more sustainability because substances are used that are simply not sustainable. Nevertheless, we do notice a changein the industry towards a greener future.

Climate Pact D?sseldorf Foto Koch

D?sseldorf climate pact - we are partners!

Climate-neutral by 2035 - with this goal in mind, the state capital D?sseldorf, the D?sseldorf Chamber of Industry and Commerce, and the D?sseldorf Chamber of Skilled Crafts and District Chamber of Skilled Crafts founded the "D?sseldorf Climate Pact with Businesses". The cooperation network accompanies companies on their way to a more climate-friendly and sustainable future.
