Alliance for Sustainability
Viessmann set up the Alliance for Sustainability online forum for the wider public. The website www.allianz-pro-nachhaltigkeit.de collects and collates information about sustainable building, housing and modernization. Previously, this information has either been incomplete or only available in a complicated format.
The long-term goal of the "Alliance for Sustainability" is on the one hand to achieve sustainable use of natural resources and on the other to make building services carbon-neutral. The intention is to take the issue of sustainability into the everyday life of the community and embed it there.
