Reducing Our Carbon Footprint

WE HAVE COVERED THE ENTIRE ROOF OF OUR GERMAN CYMBAL FACTORY WITH NEW SOLAR PANELS.

In total, we will cover a space of 3,000 square meters (32,292 square feet) with approx. 1,760 new solar panels. Our own solar power plant will generate 92% of the electricity needed to run our entire German cymbal factory. The remaining 8% is obtained from other renewable sources.

Together with all other solar cells already installed on other Meinl buildings (showroom, warehouse, office, etc.), we produce 1.12 megawatt hours of electricity per year from solar energy. This equals the yearly supply for approximately 450 households and prevents 760 tons of CO2 per year from being released into the atmosphere.

Our goal is to achieve a climate neutral production and the continued reduction of our carbon footprint.

The solar panel installation on our cymbal factory is now complete. 3,000 square meters (32,292 square feet) have been covered with 1,760 new solar panels generating 50% of the electricity needed to run our entire cymbal factory. This prevents 760 tons of CO2 emission from being released into the atmosphere every year.
