Rotpunkt Küchen, UN17-Village

Sustainable kitchens for a sustainable new neighborhood

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which were laid down by the United Nations in the 2030 Agenda, are a global plan to promote peace and prosperity and to protect our planet.

We spoke to Managing Director Andreas Wagner about his company's sustainability goals.
