Edition 31/2015
Dear reader, LinkedIn Twitter Xing

the summer heat is returning to Hamburg this week. In these times, it’s enjoyable to read how Hamburg based companies and the city itself are commiting themselves to support the enviroment. Both the Otto Group and AIDA Cruises, major local enterprises, can display positive tendencies in their sustainability reports – especially the emission of CO2 is being reduced. The city Hamburg plans to support this trend in private households as well and starts funding green areas on rooftops with up to 40 percent of the total costs. The green areas not only help conserving the climate, but also relieve the sewage system during rainy days. And as everybody from Hamburg knows: these days will sooner or later return.

This news and other topics from Hamburg and its metropolitan region will be featured in this week’s edition of our newsletter. All topics mentioned therein are summaries of news presented in depth on the business platform Hamburg News. You can access the bilingual platform at
