We see environmentally conscious thinking and acting as a natural obligation towards our fellow human beings. Furthermore, we place great importance on positively developing our group of companies in a sustainable way. Our environmental policy is based on the economical and considerate exploitation of natural resources and on avoiding, and where this is impossible, on reducing damaging effects on the environment.
Since 2008 the 10,000 square metres of the hall roofs have been equipped with a photovoltaics system with 1,764 polycrystalline solar modules that creates about 330,000 kWh of climate-neutral electricity.
This electricity is fed into the network and corresponds to the average consumption by 105 German sample households in the same period.
Since 2008 LOXX has also been discharging clean rainwater from its premises of now 44,000 square metres into the bordering Emscher river.

This is why LOXX received the “Wasserzeichen” award of the Emschergenossenschaft in 2009.
Logistics property that thinks for itself
All of our premises are constructed according to modern standards and furnished keeping environmentally friendly principles in mind.
The halls are equipped with large skylights for the best possible use of daylight and automatic lighting control via sensors. On the one hand, this leads to less energy consumption and lower costs and on the other hand our employees always work in a pleasant lighting.
Fans on the hall ceilings blow the warm air that rises up back to the hall interior to provide a pleasant temperature without requiring too much energy.
The exterior lighting of the company premises was converted to modern and highly efficient LED technology. This alone already reduces the power consumption in this area by 64 %. Furthermore, the new lighting is continuously dimmable in order to achieve additional savings.
