Efficient animal feed production using environmentally-friendly energy sources
Over the last few years we have invested around 500,000 euros in energy-saving measures and are proud of what we have achieved to date. And in the coming years we will continue to aim high to increase sustainability throughout the company. Because ultimately, it makes much more sense to reduce our CO2 emissions than to offset them. We are working on this.
Our Wehringen plant with connected office building:
For a CO2-neutral company...
... we prefer to reduce our energy consumption rather than offset it
Modern production equipment
Efficient feed production
Sparing use of energy
We rely on modern, gentle manufacturing methods and are reducing our environmental footprint. Our new production facilities run efficiently and are climate-friendly. As a result, we save water and energy. Already we are able to save 10% energy per kilogram of pet food produced, and the trend is upwards.
Environmentally-friendly energy sources
Our PV system
Sustainable electricity mix
We currently cover 5% of our power consumption with our own photovoltaic system. To save other resources, CO2 and crude oil, in 2022 we intend to cover all of our roof surfaces with PV panels and will use an empty area beside our premises to construct a solar park. We aim to be able to generate around 50% of all the electricity we need by renewable methods by 2024. The remaining electricity will be provided by a mix of sustainable energies from a regional supplier.
All online orders
Climate-friendly with GoGreen from DHL
We use Deutsche Post’s climate-neutral parcel service for all orders from our online shop, and so participate in Deutsche Post DHL’s GOGREEN initiative. So you can now order food for your pet at happydog.de in all good conscience.
... to allow effective commitment to sustainability
Despite all our energy-saving measures, there is still a small part of our CO2 output remaining that we cannot reduce any further. To offset this, we support two climate protection projects run by our partner, myclimate.de
Climate protection projects
To offset our CO2 emissions, we are involved in two climate protection projects run by our partner, myclimate. These enable us to commit effectively to sustainability and climate protection.
We are supporting families in Nepal with the construction of biogas systems and are involved in reforestation projects in Africa.
