Start of the Euralarm Forest

As part of its sustainability strategy Euralarm is planting trees around the world to stop deforestation, fight climate change and support local communities.

The first trees were planted in appreciation of the work that several individuals have done for Euralarm over the past several years. Trees were planted for Jon Könz, outgoing President of Euralarm, Dominique Taudin, until recently chairman of the Advocacy Committee and technical manager Michael Scharnowsky in India, California (USA) and Madagascar, respectively.

Euralarm is dedicated to furthering the objectives of the European Green Deal and actively promotes sustainability measures. By supporting the implementation of the Digital Product Passport, Euralarm fosters transparency and sustainability across the entire product lifecycle, ensuring compliance with circular economy principles.

For a greener world

Sustainability is also central to Euralarm’s internal processes. By investing in and digitizing communication tools, meetings take place predominantly online. Administrative processes and back-end systems have been simplified and digitized, leading to a paperless organization that contributes to a “greener world".

Task Group Environment & Sustainability

The number of European legislative initiatives related to environment and sustainability under the European Green Deal is continuously growing. Euralarm initiated the Task Group Environment & Sustainability to address the relevant legislations covering environmental sustainability topics where either Euralarm can influence or where there will be a significant impact for the members.
