Dortmund, June 1, 2011. Since the beginning of the year the company headquarters in Dortmund-Brackel has also received “clean” electricity, which is produced CO2-neutral, and not in nuclear power plants. The “green” energy comes from so-called run-of-the-river power plants in which no fossil energy carrier like oil or coal may be used, and no radioactive waste is generated. A sustainable and clean energy supply is thereby guaranteed.
The power is delivered by GrünHausEnergie, a clean “Green Energy Supplier” from Germany. TÜV Nord Umweltschutz GmbH, a recognized testing institution in this field, most recently confirmed that the energy meets the criteria for Eco-Energy Products.
With more than 1,200 stores, TEDi is the local provider among the 1-Euro discounters in Germany. Since the beginning of May 2011 the company is also represented in Austria. As yet, six TEDi stores have been opened there. TEDi’s growth is also mirrored in the number of employees: In the meantime more than 8,000 people work for the 1-Euro discounter. From the beginning, TEDi was aware of its responsibility towards young women and men and created training positions from the first day on. To date, 232 of them have successfully completed their training. Currently, 289 apprentices are being trained in eight different occupations. Furthermore, the company is also aware of its social responsibility: since 2007, TEDi has supported the “help and hope” foundation, which initiates social projects to help children in need.
