Climate change, extinction of species, marine pollution – the list of ominous environmental issues is long, and there is an acute need for action in many areas. This is why the Tönsmeier Group – as the first waste management company in Germany to do so – has agreed to a partnership with WWF Germany. Tönsmeier will support the WWF project »Ghost nets«, which the globally active organisation for nature conservation and the protection of the environment is to implement in the Baltic Sea next year. The contracts relating to this partnership were signed in September in the Berlin office of the WWF.
Bernd Ranneberg, spokesman of the management, is proud of the future cooperation: »Supporting the WWF with its objectives and working together to leave subsequent generations an environment that is intact, diverse and worth living in is something that is very close to our hearts.« Christoph Heinrich, Director of Nature Conservation at WWF Germany, is also eagerly anticipating the partnership: »It is important that we have found a partner that can give us specialist advice on the development of sustainable recycling paths. The fact that Tönsmeier is also funding the »Ghost nets« project makes its involvement doubly valuable to us.«
