(Marchtrenk, May 21, 2021) More than 200 TGW employees participated in the "Hui statt Pfui" outdoor clean-up campaign of the Upper Austrian Umweltprofis association. Together with their families, the intralogistics specialists collected litter in many Upper Austrian municipalities – while complying with applicable COVID regulations. Employees from all business units participated, from the apprentices to CEO Harald Schröpf.
Unfortunately, you do not have to wander very far into nature before you start seeing cigarette butts, beverage cans, plastic bottles or even car tyres all carelessly dropped along the way. Many of these pieces of litter contain toxic substances that present a hazard to the soil and ground water.
For this reason, TGW employees in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Poland, Lithuania, the United States and the United Kingdom collected hundreds of bags of litter. Moreover, TGW is planning more activities and campaigns in the coming weeks and months to enhance awareness for a sustainable, fair and socially just future.
To contribute to the improvement of society, it is important to commit oneself proactively and act accordingly. Many TGW employees also share this responsibility, according to CEO Harald Schröpf. In his words, "A lot of employees show a great deal of commitment at work while also doing volunteer work for various organisations and clubs in their spare time. They are making great contributions to society by doing this. It is our goal as a company to support and foster this type of commitment."
