Almost daily, we receive reports that point out the critical state of our environment. We only have to think of buzzwords like climate change, forest decline or deforestation of the rainforests! In the past, the industrialised nations in particular were instrumental in the overexploitation of the environment and its resources. Therefore, today it is more important than ever to include environmental awareness in economic decisions and to promote it in the company - not least out of responsibility towards future generations.
For this reason, we have decided to introduce and continuously develop the QuB project. We see not only quality and reliability, but also feeling and sensitivity for the environment as our duty!
