Roth commitment to climate Awarded again by "Focus" magazine


Roth commitment to climate Awarded again by "Focus" magazine. In October 2022, the news magazine "Focus" presented a total of 216 German companies in its special edition "FOR OUR PLANET_Top Klima-Engagement" that stand out for their commitment on the path to climate neutrality. In the group "Industry and Manufacturing", Roth-Werke received top scores in all four categories examined. Last year, the magazine "Focus", together with the research company "FactField" from Munich and with scientific support, identified for the first time 130 German companies that contribute to the goal of climate neutrality with their commitment. The Buchenau-based Roth-Werke was already among the winners and received the coveted award. 


"Compared to last year, we were even able to improve our rating," said Christin Roth-Jäger, Managing Director of Roth Werke, "which makes us very happy, because the award with top marks underlines our great commitment to climate and environmental protection." Tackling the climate and energy crises serves as a guideline for Roth: "We have a high demand for environmentally friendly and resource-saving processes, materials and products. Our products meet the great demand for economical, sustainable building technology. This claim is not only anchored in our corporate principles, but is also lived out in our everyday operations and is a decisive criterion in all decisions. Therefore, the 'Top Climate Commitment' award is also a tribute to the great commitment of Roth employees," Christin Roth-Jäger emphasised. Roth is already working in a climate-neutral manner at its various locations. The product range includes a wide variety of solutions for sustainable building technology. These include highly efficient complete systems consisting of heat pumps, heat storage units and energy-saving radiant heating and cooling systems.

Scientifically accompanied study
The "Focus" study is based on a survey conducted in spring of this year by the company "FactField" together with the economist and sustainability professor Stefan Schaltegger from Leuphana University in Lüneburg. In the scientifically supported research, the data and facts - all that companies actually do in terms of sustainability - were collected. In the climate magazine "For our planet", published by "Focus" for the second time, the top companies identified are listed by sector and size category. According to this, the Roth family business is awarded the rating criterion "Excellent" in all four categories examined in the "Industry and Manufacturing" sector. The questions included the company's carbon footprint, the company's climate management, the use of renewable energies, the market launch of climate-friendly products and the reduction targets for the future. In addition to the extensive self-disclosure, information from public data sources was also included in the analysis. The selection for participation in the study takes place without the companies' intervention and is free of charge.
