For the 17 finalists, the outcome came as a complete surprise. For the first time since the Freudenberg-wide “We all take care” initiative was launched in 2002, the jury selected four joint first places in the “We all take care” Award. In doing so, the jury demonstrated the great significance of the initiative for the Group. The four winners include Freudenberg Service, who made a key contribution to combating the pandemic with its vaccination center at Weinheim Industrial Park, and Freudenberg Performance Materials in Nantong, who found a way to significantly reduce its energy consumption with the aid of intelligent compressed air control. Freudenberg Sealing Technologies took home two trophies: after the devastating floods in the Ahr valley, the Freudenberg Sealing Technologies team from Remagen was commended for its efforts in assisting colleagues and the neighboring communities in the disaster area. Freudenberg Sealing Technology in Weinheim used digital methods to analyze motion sequences ergonomically to improve workplace design.
