Environment

Circular economy

The political focus has broadened in recent years. Whereas in the past the focus was primarily on energy, today the circular economy occupies at least as prominent a place.

Environment

Energy

We urgently need energy. But as long as it is scarce, expensive and above all harmful to the environment, we must use it responsibly.

Environment

Ecodesign

Ecodesign is the holistic consideration of the environmental impact of a product. In the past, the focus was primarily on energy, but this has now changed.

Environment

Taxonomy

Capital flows should follow a greener path.

Energy

Energy efficiency of commercial cooking appliances

So far, in the area of commercial kitchen appliances, only refrigerators have been affected by the energy label and an eco-design regulation. However, this will probably change in the foreseeable future. The focus is currently on commercial cooking appliances.

Energy

User behaviour

In terms of energy efficiency, it is crucial how the user operates the appliances. This is even more crucial than the energy efficiency of the appliances themselves.

Politics

Berlin

Through its Berlin branch, the HKI is close to political and economic events in the capital and represents the association's positions at the federal political level. In doing so, it is in regular dialogue with decision-makers and lobbyists.

Politics

Brussels

The requirements from Brussels dominate national legislation within the EU in many areas.

Politics

Bern

Bern is in close contact with Brussels. Therefore, the HKI Association also cooperates directly with the Swiss authorities.

Political Positions - Catering Equipment

Ecodesign Catering Equipment

Ecodesign can also be useful for catering equipment. However, a great deal of expertise is required for implementation in order not to do more harm than good. The situation in commercial kitchens is much more complex than in household kitchens and cannot be compared to them.

Political positions Heating and cooking appliances

Climate policy positions Heating and cooking appliances

Climate policy is essential. However, in many areas there is a need for closer coordination between politics and the respective experts. Only in this way can the necessary expertise be developed in partnership, which is needed for targeted solutions.
