"It is especially important for businesses to promote sustainability and protect the environment from unnecessary damage in a proactive, not just a responsive way. After all, when it comes to waste, it’s better to prevent it from being generated in the first place, rather than dealing with its disposal afterwards. The issue of sustainability has been a cause close to my heart since I was a young child – I have always felt an urge to be in nature. At just five years old I tended to my very first flowerbed. I didn’t have to think much about choosing to study biology. To make waves in the area of ecology and environmental protection, however, I was drawn towards business. At Klüber Lubrication, they share my philosophy, developing products that are developed in-house with sustainability in mind. By making our energy and resource consumption more efficient, improving biodegradability and reducing toxicity, we are not only reducing our impact on nature, we are also protecting the people and businesses that work with our lubricants."
