The 5th generation at COLUMBUS started. COLUMBUS is next to the baronial park, which is protected as European Natural Heritage. We generate our electricity by our own photovoltaic construction - depending on the weather, we are producing approx. 85%-88% CO2 neutral. (175 MWh/197 MWh) (2011). Our turnery obtains the wood only from sustainable forestry. Defective goods from production, which do not meet the high quality standards of COLUMBUS globes, are being granulated and cleaned. After that, they are mixed in a special procedure.

COLUMBUS gives the same care also to longtime staff. If there are changes in the life of a staff member, COLUMBUS is always your partner and adapts the job to the current living situation. COLUMBUS is highly interested in the social responsibility to our staff. The issues of our staff play an important role in decisisons of the management.
