Sustainability at Gerolsteiner

Our Mission

Preserving the power of nature has always been in Gerolsteiner's DNA. To this end, we set ourselves ambitious goals that we consistently pursue and against which we are measured - every day anew. Here we provide a transparent insight into our activities in the area of sustainability.



We use 100% certified green electricity from hydropower.

262social projects

we supported in 2023 as part of "Team mit Stern".


< 10 %

Each year, Gerolsteiner extracts less than 10 % of the deep water from its 28 springs (licit up to 20%), maintaining a sustainable water cycle.


1,5 °C

Gerolsteiner supports the ambitious goal of limiting global warming to a maximum of 1.5 °C, set by international climate agreements.

The Gerolsteiner Future Forest Project continues to grow.

A healthy forest produces healthy water. We reinforce the link between robust and flourishing forests and climate action in our local environment by carefully transforming pure spruce forests into more bio-diverse and climate-stable mixed forests, just as nature intended.

On Track to Climate Action

Dedicated climate action requires a detailed understanding of our greenhouse gas emissions. The renowned Heidelberg Institute for Energy and Environmental Research (IFEU) has provided independent validation of our corporate carbon footprint reports since 2017. To maintain the highest standards and uphold our commitment to climate control, we include all emissions along our supply chain to produce an extensive and complete carbon assessment.

The Gerolsteiner Sustainability Task Force has developed an ambitious plan for climate action – a project that has been in development for over a year. After the publication of a comprehensive carbon footprint report, the team consulted with leading experts to create Gerolsteiner-specific climate targets.

The main areas of action were mapped out and specific tactics to reduce our emissions were specified with the goal to meet our climate target by 2030. To obtain this substantial climate action, we focus on our entire supply chain. We actively engage and work collaboratively with all our partners and suppliers and have set specific annual actions and objectives.

Utilizing all the possibilities to reduce our carbon footprint is a challenging process. Given that Gerolsteiner relies on an extensive bottling process, it is not feasible to achieve zero net emissions. Compensating for our emissions through environmental projects certified to the highest standards supports our global approach towards climate action. Initiating change and taking a pioneering position in our home base was the driving force behind our mission to realize carbon neutrality along the entire supply chain by 2020.
