DDC Green Solutions for Sustainability
Sustainable growth and the preservation of biodiversity have always been parts of the mentality and corporate culture of DDC. In 2011 the company launched the Green Solution Tender to help the local infrastructure becoming green and promote environmentally conscious thinking by providing financial resources for local communities. The best green initiatives in the catchment areas of Beremend and Vác are supported by a total amount of €20 000 each year. Since autumn 2015 another €5000 comes to the total amount aiming green projects to be realized in the catchment area of Pécs as well.
In 2015 the best green initiatives were urban wildlife and sapling grove for kindergarten students, raising awareness of energy consumption and community space that supports health preservation. Urban Wildlife is for creating a nature trail to show the local wildlife, while Green Solution for Sapling Grove is about raising awareness for environmental issues for children. Raising Awareness of Energy Consumption shapes youth’s attitude toward energy efficiency, sustainability and nature preservation. The Community Space encourages the people to follow a healthy lifestyle.
In 2016 the winners completed 7 projects in 6 cities or villages, out of which two projects took place in Pécs or in its vicinity. The aim of these projects are to teach the local communities about environmental preservation, encourage them to get to know their local environment, and set the right values that will lead the society forward.
