Circular Economy

The aim of the circular economy is to keep products and materials in circulation for as long as possible. In other words, to give them a longer lifespan by reusing, repairing or recycling them. In this way, we can reduce waste and conserve resources. Circular economy is important because resources are becoming scarce or are only available in limited quantities.

How does this work?

The best example of the circular economy can actually be found in nature itself. Because nature operates according to the principle that all resources that once come from the earth are also returned to the earth. This means that there is no waste and resources grow back eternally.
We think a paradigm shift from a linear economy to a circular economy is called for. We must try to give our capital goods an eternal life by repairing them, replacing defective parts, and even starting to think in terms of cycles when designing products. At allsafe, we do this through our all:change program by taking back delivered and sold cargo protection from our customers. Repairing them, servicing them and delivering them back again.
So we work by the motto: "To our customer, the benefit is what matters, not the product itself." Circular economy is a great tool to conserve resources and thereby counteract resource scarcity.

Circular Economy at allsafe

We have the "eternal" product life as a goal - thus our products stand for intensive use and longevity. By working with us, you are conserving our earth's resources and advancing the circular economy. You ask yourself how? By using our repair service all:change! Do you want to be part of our vision? Use all:change! 

"Sustainability is an attitude - our attitude" Detlef 
Likewise, we ourselves pay attention to a "long life" and repairability when purchasing our business equipment and, in the spirit of sustainability, we obtain most of our electricity from our own PV systems. In addition, our company cars have been converted to electric vehicles and we source the materials for our products in Europe. These are all measures we are implementing to save CO2 - and we are already in the process of implementing many more.

"I see the circular economy as our chance to conduct business in a healthy and sustainable way. This is how we will collaborate to live together in a way that makes sense and brings great joy."

Our Vision - Sustainable Economy

At allsafe, we operate according to the principle of the sustainable economy. 
Although we don't think of the economy in the contexts of oceans, seas and coasts. 
But of repair, an eternal product life and of a better world. 
 
Because as a company, we are aware of our responsibility towards our environment and future generations. Sustainable economy is more than recycling. It's an interplay between the attitude of our society, our consumption and, of course, the economy.

We as a society need to rethink our habits!  
And that is exactly what allsafe - as a company - has already done. We do our best to conduct business in a healthy and sustainable way. And wish that many more companies follow our example. More about this also on our YouTube Channel.

Alberts hint

In Detlef's book "Mit Gutem Gewissen! Der gesunde Weg zum Wirtschaften!" (With a clear concience! The healty way to do business!) Detlef Lohmann describes exactly which considerations he had and which solutions there are. 

Economy and ecology are not opposites. This is what entrepreneur and best-selling author Detlef Lohmann describes in his latest book. The book laureate proves that successful business is also possible without ruthless exploitation of the resources of our planet and the destruction of the environment. On the contrary: read why the healthy way to run a business is actually the only sensible way to lead your company into the future.

Subjects in the Book

Consumerism: a Dead End

Relentlessly and with the help of many examples, Detlef Lohmann reveals why our economy of exuberant consumption is leading to a dead end. He also explains which mechanisms have led us into this perdicament and why we continue to race towards the boundaries of environmental redemption at top speed despite all the warning cries. He does however show us the dimming light at the end of the tunnel; a Solution. 

Profit sharing, low Hirarchy, Circular Economy

This is how we live by the sustainable economy

We have developed our locking bars and locking beams to the extent that they allow long and intense use due to their high quality and are repairable. For the repair of our products we have developed all:change. This is our repair service that follows our vision for the circular economy.
