      Ulm entrepreneurs promote worldwide tree planting

      Gabriele Renner and Sabine Stein, owners of the textile company pervormance international from Ulm, were welcomed at the weekend in Monaco by Prince Albert and "Plant for the Planet" founder Felix Finkbeiner. The entrepreneurs from Ulm support the environmental organization Plant-for-the-Planet, whose patron is Prince Albert II. The event was also attended by Professor Franz Josef Radermacher from Ulm on behalf of the Club of Rome, "The Mountain Doctor" actor Hans Sigl and the entrepreneurs Alfred Ritter from Ritter Sport and Michael Durach from Develey, as well as representatives from environmental organizations such as the WWF.

      "We have been the world's first climate-neutral textile company since 2013 and have translated our contribution of 246,920 kilograms of CO2 per year in Monaco into trees for the Trillion Trees Campaign of the Plant-for-the-Planet organization. Prince Albert of Monaco, is Patron of the organization" reports Gabriele Renner from the reception in the Principality. So far, the contribution of the company from Ulm went to a forest protection project in Papua New Guinea. "Not only do we want to protect people against heat stress, but we also want to safeguard the future of our children sustainably and preserve the environment in order to prevent further heat problems caused by global warming," explains Sabine Stein.

      Therefore, the cooling function textiles under the trade name E.COOLINE are also produced exclusively in Germany and Europe. "We can always control how our products are made. That costs a bit more, but it is worth it ". The company also joined the United Nations UN Global Compact and the Women's Empowerment Program in 2013 to strengthen women's rights in the world, and the two women entrepreneurs were appointed to the Senate of Economics in 2011. "Here we are committed to responsible action in the economy, for sustainability and the World Forest Climate Initiative of the Senate," emphasizes Gabriele Renner, whose functional clothing works like an "air conditioning system", by cooling the body by up to 12 ° C. while saving at least 90% CO2 compared to an air conditioner. This helps, for example, to protect people with multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's or cardiovascular diseases as well as fire brigades or construction workers and athletes from heat problems. More than 100,000 textiles have been sold worldwide with high-tech functional cooling. "This is a completely new market that we are currently developing. Until now, there has been no alternative to energy-intensive air-conditioning systems, and in the open air they do not even work in comparison to our products, "explains Sabine Stein. In 2011, this was acknowledged at the Federal President's award ceremony for the Innovation Award "Land of Ideas", which was then handed over to the women entrepreneurs by Minister President Winfried Kretschmann at the Stuttgart Castle. In the meantime, cooling vests for dogs and cooling blankets and gaiters for horses are also under development. "More exciting projects in the health sector are about to be launched," announces Gabriele Renner.
