Founder & CEO

“Our corporate culture and our team are our best assets. This differentiates us from our competitors and ensures that we exceed our customers’ needs while contributing to integrated sustainable development.”


Corporate Culture and Values


  • Our goal is to deliver solutions to our clients instead of creating new problems. We want to take work off our clients’ shoulders so they can focus on what really matters: advancing sustainability company-wide.
  • It is crucial for us to deliver high-quality results. That is why we work according to scientific, international standards. In addition, we have an internal quality management system. Our work is based on facts and figures, rather than “greenwashing”.
  • At DFGE, everyone is responsible for their tasks; we believe in self-motivation and personal responsibility. This is only possible if you can trust in the strengths of the team: You can always ask your colleagues for advice, who will help you improve and learn.
  • We are constantly evolving: new ideas are always welcome! We optimise our internal processes and broaden as well as deepen our offerings in order to always fulfil our customers’ wishes in the best possible way.
  • Working at DFGE requires flexibility and the ability to multitask. You will deal with clients from several industries and with a variety of issues, as well as handle several projects at the same time. We also work with clients and colleagues from different countries and cultures, so a good level of English is an important requirement.
  • We want the work at DFGE to be fun, both the work itself and the interaction within the team. In this sense, we are a kind of “family business” and “friends”.

We trust in teamwork and in the strengths of the individual employees

Sustainability at DFGE

Together. Sustainable.

UN Global Compact

Communication On Progress

As a non-manufacturing, small company, we at DFGE naturally face much smaller challenges than many of our customers when it comes to corporate sustainability. Of course, we also calculate our own corporate carbon footprint and take into account the 17 SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) defined by the UN. Every year, we publish our own COP (Communication on Progress) report as part of the UNGC – United Nations Global Compact.

DFGE - A climate neutral company

The result of a sustainably implemented climate strategy

As for our customers, we have also developed a climate strategy for DFGE. This is part of our corporate goals. Since it is difficult for us to completely avoid CO2 emissions throughout the entire value chain, we have invested in climate protection projects in order to achieve climate neutrality and have offset the remaining emissions by purchasing certificates.

Member of Urban Sports Club

Urban Sports Club LogoA good work-life balance is important to us. The best way to achieve this is to really let off steam or switch off after a day’s work by swimming, bouldering or fitness training. That’s why we encourage all employees to join the Urban Sports Club.

Employee engagement & social activities

Garbage Collection Action

Sustainability also depends a lot on the commitment of individuals. In our Innovation Days, our teams repeatedly develop creative ideas on how we as a DFGE company can steadily become more sustainable. For example, on the initiative of our employees, we switched from bottled mineral water to water that we sparkled ourselves. One highlight was our “Ramadama” initiative. In Bavarian, “Räumen tun wir!” is the name given to a private trash collection campaign in nature and residential areas. The result was a bulging large trash bag per employee and a letter of thanks from the mayor.

Bee House

One of the teams’ ideas was also a homemade bee house, which we attached to the Greifenberg office. Furthermore, we are especially proud to have been able to convince the local Rewe market to let us bring our own bowls for the salad bar and not use the disposable plastic ones. And because the DFGE teams love to cook, there are already two editions of the DFGE Cook Book.

Together. Sustainable.
