Employees and initiatives

Community, collaboration and dialogue – that’s what we stand for. Our employees, partners and numerous collaborative projects are key to our business. Together we shape a future worth living and creating added value for everyone.

Our corporate culture stands for respect, communication and responsibility. These shared values are what unites us – whatever job we perform at Interzero – and whatever our background, beliefs or choice of partner. Even if we only look at Interzero in Germany, we find employees from 60 nations and with ages ranging from 16 to 67. We also work to improve equal opportunities among our employees by valuing our diversity, taking an interest in our co-workers and seeking to learn from one another. Our competency model embodies a shared understanding of our values and offers orientation for employees throughout the company. It forms a starting-point for refreshing our commitment to our vision of ‘a world without waste’ on a daily basis – not resting on our laurels but striving to find the right ways to achieve this vision.

Staff initiatives for sustainability

We achieve more together. This is why our staff are actively contributing to making Interzero a more sustainable company. Sustainability Weeks have been held regularly by our Sustainability Ambassadors since 2016 to provide staff with advice on waste avoidance, resource conservation and sustainable eating habits, and encourage participation in sharing programmes and CO2-friendly commutes. The city cycling campaign is also very popular. The aim here is to cover as many kilometres by bike in three weeks to contribute to local climate protection and raise awareness about the need to expand urban cycling infrastructure. In 2019, Interzero racked up nearly 5,253 ‘cyclometers’, thereby saving around 745 kilograms of CO2 equivalent.


"Every one of us can make their contribution to a sustainable corporate culture. As Sustainability Ambassadors, our employees can present their own ideas and sustainable projects that contribute to the success of our company. A broad-based team promotes these initiatives throughout Interzero: this keeps communication channels open and helps us develop sustainability as a continuous process. "

Thinking outside the box: Two degrees are possible

Companies have a central role to play in achieving the two-degree target. So what action should they be taking to reduce global warming? The strategy adopted by the ‘Road to a <2° Economy’ initiative is “We achieve more if we work together.” Thanks to its interdisciplinary approach, it unites a wide variety of industries, specialisms and perspectives with the aim of making progress towards their common goal. Interzero is playing an active part. Together with around 40 other companies, we are members of this pioneering project that was launched jointly by Foundation 2° and WWF Germany.

Our Code of Conduct

Our corporate values provide a basis for how we want to work together now and in the future. Our Code of Conduct also serves as a set of binding guidelines for our conduct in the workplace. It is designed to help us constantly review our own behaviour, act responsibly in every situation, and meet increasingly complex legal requirements.
