„Of course, I'm looking forward to the future. I intend to spend the rest of my life in it.“


This quote from Mark Twain is more relevant today than ever. That is why Pahlhammer, as a future-oriented family business, assumes responsibility by taking into account ecological, economic and social aspects. We see it as our duty to act in the long term and thus sustainable. Especially with regard to future generations, we now have to face the challenges of environmental protection and climate change.

To us, it is important not only to talk, but above all to act. How we implement this thinking in everyday life, can be seen here:

1. Fleet

  • Our trucks drive exclusively with the emission-reduced EURO-6 engines of the latest generation.
  • Avoidance of redundant transport routes (such as empty runs), through the use of state-of-the-art telematics systems (route optimization).
  • Regular driver training to save fuel and thus reduce CO2 emissions.
  • Use of rolling resistance optimized tires and regular tire pressure monitoring.

2. Building management

  • Since 2016, we have been purchasing only certified green electricity from renewable energy sources from Lichtblick (see climate protection certificate).
  • For lighting, the most recent LED technology is predominantly used. This leads to significant energy savings. Reduction of power consumption by lighting control in the interior and exterior of the logistics facilities including the office buildings.
  • Use of energy-saving workstations and switching of all unused electrical appliances including the computer equipment.

3. Employees and society

  • Our schooling rate is twice as high as the national average.
  • Continuous education and training of our employees.
  • Steady improvement of working conditions through programs for health and old-age provision as well as the offer of different working time models.
  • Since 2013 we are an active supporting member of KLIMANKO gemeinnützige GmbH. This is a climate protection organization that implements various environmental projects in Germany. Further information can be found at

4. Various measures

  • Use of recycled paper to the greatest possible extent
  • Paper-saving communication through the use of state-of-the-art IT and archiving systems.
  • Waste prevention and consistent waste separation.
  • Permanent participation of all employees through resource-saving behavior.
