KNAUER receives public service award

Oct 29 2012

KNAUER has won the Franz von Mendelssohn medal 2012, awarded by the Berlin Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IHK) and the Berlin Chamber of Crafts (HWK) for the 8th time.

The IHK awards socially dedicated companies that harmonise their economic success with their social commitment. The medal is dedicated to former Berlin banker and IHK president Franz von Mendelssohn (in office from 1914 to 1931), who was a shining example of public service. Only 4 companies were awarded this year out of approximately 50 applicants.

Alexandra Knauer accepted the award with delight and pride at the recent ceremony.
The CEO and owner stated: “I am very delighted about this award because it confirms that we take our responsibility towards society and environment seriously and that we take action. We do not focus on just one “good deed”, but rather, out of conviction, we engage in many different ways. My coworkers value this attitude and they support the implementation of a lot of ideas. Our efforts by far exceed the size of the company.”

As well as supporting social projects and adopting family-friendly practices for employees , it is also the first company from the HPLC sector that has reported a life cycle assessment in cooperation with the Technical University of Berlin for selected KNAUER products.

The assessment takes a look at all environmental impacts generated during a product’s life cycle, starting with the extraction of raw materials from nature, to the use of the product, and to its disposal.
