Improving energy efficiency
In order to produce Miele appliances even more energy efficiently, we are investing in a range of energy-saving measures: From the construction of a new, more efficient data centre and the conversion of all lighting to LED, to the replacement of ventilation systems. We have also renovated a number of our buildings at various locations and improved insulation. In the 2014/15 and 2015/16 business years, we achieved total savings of 3,800 MWh of electricity, 1,000 MWh of heat, 18 MWh of natural gas and 1,200,000 cubic metres of compressed air in total. In 2015, we established an internal network to improve the company-wide exchange of information on the topic of energy efficiency. Experts from all of the countries in which Miele has plants or sales subsidiaries come together in specialist working groups to exchange their experiences.
