Shortage of skilled workers, high energy costs, government overregulation, lack of digitization - Germany's managers are increasingly complaining about the economic framework conditions, they feel abandoned by politics. This is confirmed by the current ranking of the most competitive countries worldwide - Germany has slipped from 15th to 22nd place among the 64 countries compared *.
Reduce total amount of electricity by 9%
That is why top managers are increasingly calling for a change in economic policy. But have all economic bosses done their own homework?
9% total electricity in Germany can be saved immediately by replacing all existing fluorescent tubes in buildings and public spaces 1:1 with efficient LED tubes such as the GLT TUBE. LED retrofitting in accordance with the international IEC/EN 62776 standard is an easy-to-implement measure that also helps to counteract the shortage of skilled workers. Once replaced, expensive and time-consuming maintenance costs are eliminated due to the longevity of the new lighting. In the future, it can be operated without specialist electrical knowledge. This is because the right choice of light source, such as the GLT TUBE from German LED Tech, will achieve the promised efficiency and sustainability. They follow the strict specifications of the current EU Ecodesign Directive and the international standards for LED Retrofit.
Personal responsibility and environmental protection
Forward-looking and responsible managers of German corporations such as Deutsche Bahn, EnBW, Uniper, BER Airport or DS Smith have recognized this necessity and switched to GLT TUBES "Made in Germany". As a result, they benefit day after day from savings of up to 80% of their energy costs and CO2 emissions. This increases the profitability of the companies, improves their eco-balance and frees up funds for investments in future projects. The solution is obvious. All companies, the federal government, states and municipalities must now take responsibility.
