Schiedel Going Green
We want to thank our partner Maintel for the delivery of our new cloud-based phone system, RingCentral.
As part of this change, Maintel includes that for every 500 cloud seats connected, they will plant 25 trees.
At Schiedel, we care deeply about the environment. As one of our company pillars, sustainability is key for us. Therefore we focus on environmentally friendly, energy-efficient, low-energy solutions.
So switching to suppliers such as Maintel, who focus on protecting the environment and providing cleaner solutions, is a simple decision.
So far, Maintels contributions have led to a reduction of 62.5 tonnes of CO2 and the planting of 8660 trees.

We want to thank our Group Team Lead of Infrastructure, Peter Daglish and IT Infrastructure Support Sean Middlemore for their work on this project and the introduction of our new system!

Schiedel is a part of Standard Industries, a privately-held global industrial company operating in over 80 countries. The Standard ecosystem spans a broad array of holdings, technologies and investments—including both public and private companies from early to late-stage—as well as world-class building materials assets and next-generation solar solutions. Throughout its 140-year history, Standard has leveraged its deep industry expertise and vision to create outsize value across its businesses, which today include operating companies GAF, BMI, Siplast, GAF Energy, Schiedel and SGI, as well as related businesses 40 North, a multi-billion-dollar investment platform, 40 North Ventures and Winter Properties.
Schiedel has always tried very hard to improve its ecological footprint with various activities. Since 2019 we have now set a new, consolidated standard with our company-wide “Going Green” initiative, which is unique in the industry.
But even before 2019, we undertook various activities in all areas that should protect and protect our environment. In the “Industry” area, for example, we have drastically reduced the proportion of cement with a new material solution and optimized it in such a way that we were able to save 3600 tons of cement and also reduce our CO2 emissions. In our factories, we have been able to drastically save the energy required by switching to LED lighting. There are further examples in the area of “purchasing and logistics” where we have invested heavily in building insulation and new, energy-efficient machines.
Our new, strategic goals are a lot more ambitious:
