CITO once again confirmed in the Bavarian Environment and Climate Pact
The Franconian company was already included in the Bavarian Environment and Climate Pact by the Bavarian State Government (“Umwelt- and Klimapakt Bayern”) in 2016. Membership of this group of sustainable companies was reconfirmed in February 2021.
“Umwelt- and Klimapakt Bayern” – what is that?
“Umwelt- and Klimapakt Bayern” – the Bavarian Environment and Climate Pact – is an agreement between the Bavarian State Government and Bavarian businesses with pledges regarding performance and help with operational environmental protection. In the environmental pact, the partners declare their explicit conviction that natural resources can be better protected by the voluntary and reliable cooperation of the state and business than with laws and regulations alone. Against this background, on 18 November 2010 the new “Bavarian Environmental Pact – Sustainable Growth with Environmental and Climate Protection ("Umweltpakt Bayern – Nachhaltiges Wachstum with Umwelt and Klimaschutz") was signed.
CITO is a committed, environmentally active Bavarian business
You will find the entry as a participant on the internet site of the Bavarian Ministry of Health and the Environment (Bayerischen Staatsministeriums for Umwelt and Gesundheit), in the list of environmental pact participants and in the Smartphone App.
