As a company with over 320 employees, we are aware of our social responsibility. We are actively committed to social interaction, diverse work culture and the careful use of environmental resources. Regardless of the issue at stake, we regularly question our actions and examine how we as a company can become even better in this area.
Acting today for our tomorrow
Good sound makes life better, so it should not harm the environment.
The question of how we as a company can act more sustainably is being addressed by a team founded specifically for this purpose, in which international Teufel colleagues are involved across all divisions and hierarchies. The cooperation here is on a voluntary basis, which gives the project a unique energy. In regular meetings, ideas for more environmentally friendly management are developed, presented to the management and then independently promoted by the members. Here you can read about which projects have been successfully implemented so far and be sure that this is just the beginning.
All German Teufel offices and stores are supplied with real green electricity. This means that our electricity provider generates electricity from 100% renewable energy from independent plants.
We work mostly paperless and share our ideas digitally. When we print something in our Berlin offices, we use recycled paper. We're also gradually replacing the user manuals in our product packaging with digital versions for download.
From now on, we sell or ship our products in a printed shipping box only - no additional retail packaging is required. In this way, we want to save resources. This applies to all our new products.
We changed the inner protection in the packaging to a more environmentally friendly material. This material is more recyclable and therefore more sustainable than styrofoam. Unfortunately, our heavier products, such as floor-standing loudspeakers, are an exception to this. Here, due to the requirements for transport protection, we still have to rely on foams and polystyrene, but we want to use them as efficiently and minimally as possible.
Friends for life
Teufel products aim to provide the best sound today, tomorrow and many days after.
For our products, we focus on value so that you can enjoy them for a long time.
Diversity helps Teufel to understand the bigger picture.
The Teufel family is bold, open and diverse. This allows us to receive creativity in all forms. The only thing that matters is that we are all united by our love of good sound and the courage to question conventions in order to change things for the better.
The members of the Teufel family come from 17 nations.
We employ people aged between 20 and 60, which creates exciting synergies.
Who you love is not important to us, we are only interested in your passion for good sound.
Life and work in harmony
Without strong individuals there can be no strong community.
We all have different needs to be able to do a good job. That's why every employee at Teufel is individually supported and promoted.
To help employees reconcile work and family life, we offer flexible working hours and individual parental leave arrangements tailored to the everyday life and circumstances of the employees.
As far as the job description allows, we offer our employees the possibility of mobile working.
And this isn't just stuff we're talking about, we are constantly celebrating team members who have been a part of the Teufel journey for 5 or 10 years.
And because the best day of the year should not be spent in the office, all Teufel employees have their birthday off.
We want to give something back to the community.
As a company, we not only take responsibility for our employees but also try to make a contribution to the society in which we live.
Our employees receive one day off per year to participate in social projects.
We work closely with the Berliner Tafel and actively support the association. Among other things, we have donated over 15,000 euros in the context of a charity run.
Every year in December we collect clothes for charity.
I also agree that Teufel may use my behaviour in the newsletter (e.g. opening the emails, clicking on links) and on Teufel's website (e.g. product views, items purchased) to tailor the advertising offers in the newsletter to me individually and to create a personal profile for my email address. Teufel uses software from Emarsys eMarketing Systems GmbH (Märzstr. 1, A-1150 Vienna) for this data processing (the dispatch, personalisation and analysis of my behaviour in the newsletter). I also consent to Teufel combining the data on my behaviour and my settings in the newsletter with the data from Teufel's merchandise management system to optimise newsletter management in a software solution from Microsoft Corporation (One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA) and evaluating it therein. My personal data is processed in pseudonymised form only for the purpose of comparison; the evaluations in the software solution are otherwise carried out on the basis of anonymous data and statistics so that Teufel can no longer draw any conclusions about me as a person in Microsoft software. This includes, for example, automated analyses of the surfing and purchasing behaviour of newsletter subscribers, which also include (tracking) data from other service providers (e.g. Mapp Intelligence) on an anonymous basis.
The data processing is based on my consent according to Art. 6 paras. 1 lit. a DSGVO. I can revoke my consent at any time with effect for the future: directly in the newsletter or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The processing of the data takes place in the territory of the European Union and/or the European Economic Area, the United Kingdom and, where applicable, the USA.
