At WALA Heilmittel GmbH, we work together to help safeguard the future of our planet and its inhabitants. We believe business should serve people and not the other way around. We help to heal, nourish and thrive – as continuously and sustainably as possible. In concrete terms, this means that we stimulate healing at various levels. In doing so, we promote the flourishing development of people by using fair trade raw materials; of nature, especially the soil, plants and animals; and of society and the economy – at both the micro and macro level.
We joined the initiative because we believe that through exchange among experts with different perspectives, we will find real answers to today’s burning questions. The common ground and mutual understanding shall be the responsibility and conviction we need to move now for the sake of the earth and life of future generations.”

Commitment: Reduce greenhouse gas emissions
We aim to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions (scope 1 and 2) by at least 85% by 2030 compared to a 2019 baseline. We already initiated the transition from fossil to renewable energies years ago, for example by continuously increasing our own power generation capacities through the installation of photovoltaic systems. Since 1 January 2020, all of our gas needs have been met by biomethane rather than fossil gas: the company from which we obtain our biogas converts organic and agricultural waste into energy.
We will determine step by step the as yet unknown scope 3 CO2 emissions. The process for determining the scope 3 indirect CO2 emissions is part of a project started in 2022.
