What do you think is a responsible company, Mr Giersiepen?

Dirk Giersiepen states, A responsible company produces reliable products that are geared to the future and always focuses on its customers. In doing so it must always keep an eye on the social and ecological effects of its activities and integrate new demands into its service process.

In which direction will networking of buildings develop in the next few years?

Christian Feltgen: "Only smart home systems that are as safe as possible, easy to operate, can be updated and offer a high degree of compatibility - in other words, technology that serves people - will prevail in the long run. And systems that provide real added value to the user in day-to-day life.

Christian Feltgen, Managing Director

Mr Zimmermann, what are the most important challenges that Gira has to deal with?

Steffen Zimmermann: In addition to the constantly growing requirements with respect to our products, we must not lose sight of the energy input required for production, and also for the entire product life cycle. We should always consider the process as a whole, and use materials and energy in a way that conserves resources. Another challenge is to increasingly use materials that can be recycled and thus have less impact on the environment. This applies not only to products but also to packaging.
