Wilkhahn achieved this milestone partly as a result of their CO2 free production and administrative facilities in Bad Münder, Germany. To this effect, a joint venture was started with a local farmer in 2007 and the Wilkhahn Energie GmbH & Co. KG was founded. Wilkhahn Energy is delivering energy to the region and is highly profitable.
Wilkhahn has more green trump cards up its sleeve. In Asia, they achieved a unique 100% Greenstar audit score. In the USA, WIlkhahn has been Greenguard certified and many of its products contribute to LEED-ratings. Wilkhahn is also the only manufacturer in the office furniture industry which received the State Environmental Award of the German federal government.
