First top 3 placement at the German Sustainability Award for a company in the construction industry.
As a finalist of the German Sustainability Award 2018 in the category "medium-sized companies", the construction paint manufacturer DAW SE with the well-known brands Caparol and Alpina prevailed among hundreds of competitors and convinced the top-class jury. "As a driver of innovation, DAW shows in an exemplary manner how sustainability as a goal determines entrepreneurial activity and, with a wide range of ecological products, also moves its customers to rethink", the jury explained. The award ceremony took place on December 8th in front of around 1,200 invited guests in Düsseldorf
Under the patronage of Federal President Dr. Frank-Walter Steinmeiner was looking for the German Sustainability Award, which was awarded for the tenth time, creative solutions for the challenges of tomorrow. Top achievements and pioneers of sustainability were recognized - in categories as diverse as business, research, architecture and municipalities. Representatives from companies, municipalities, politics and research took part in the anniversary event. Well-known laudators, including North Rhine-Westphalia's Prime Minister Armin Laschet, presented the winners with the awards
"The placement among the TOP 3 of the German Sustainability Award is a great pleasure for us as a family company and at the same time an incentive to continue to make positive contributions to profitability, environmental protection and the well-being of people," said Dr. Ralf Murjahn, CEO of DAW. "Our success is also shown by an increasing proportion of innovative products and the use of renewable raw materials," said DAW Managing Director Dr. Christoph Hahner, responsible for innovations, research & development. With its professional brand Caparol as well as Alpina, the brand for DIY store customers, DAW launched product lines in the paint market that are specifically geared towards sustainability. DAW sees climate protection as a sustainable challenge. Because although the construction and real estate industry is responsible for over a third of the world's CO2 emissions and therefore more energy-efficient building design is urgently needed, the market for thermal insulation has declined in recent years. "We see it as a great opportunity to counteract this and to actively promote the topics of" sustainable buildings "and" climate protection "as pioneers in the field of sustainable coatings. Our commitment was rewarded,”said Bettina Klump-Bickert, Head of Sustainability Management at DAW.counteracting this and actively promoting the topics of "sustainable buildings" and "climate protection" as pioneers in the field of sustainable coatings.

Climate protection is also an important issue in your own company. For example, the DAW produces 100 percent climate-neutral at its German locations and pursues a constant reduction in emissions as part of an integrated management system. The introduction of building management technology, heat recovery and the consistent use of LEDs led to 18 percent energy savings within four years. The DAW is socially committed to its employees in a wide variety of ways, employs people with disabilities and recognizes the performance of the painting trade with its own promotional award. Since its foundation in 1895, the DAW has been an innovative provider of environmentally friendly, health-conscious products and services. For the future, the company would like to continue to actively expand its contribution to sustainable and future-friendly business practices and actions.
