Advisory program

ÖKOPROFIT

ÖKOPROFIT is our local advisory program for environmental issues. Munich also coordinates the program on a federal level. The consultations include several modules for companies of various sizes. ÖKOPROFIT is the leading program of its kind in Germany.

It can offer you expert support to reduce your resource consumption, ideally resulting in a win-win situation for both your company and the environment. Participation in ÖKOPROFIT can also help companies attain ISO14001 and/or EMAS certification, or they can use the documentation for their own energy and sustainability management.

The program entails a fee* and is run by external experts.
