Grünenthal Stories

Our hearts go out to all those affected by the devastating earthquake that struck Türkiye and Syria this week. The loss of life and property is tragic, and our thoughts are with the people and communities affected by this disaster. Many of our colleagues have family and friends in the region. We stand by you during this difficult time.

In the face of such hardship, we must come together to support those in need. Grünenthal has donated €250,000 to support relief efforts in the affected areas.

We encourage all of our friends, colleagues, and partners to consider donating to the relief effort in any way they can.

Grünenthal relies on solar power for its corporate headquarters

Our Aachen R&D and production site is soon home to the region's largest solar power plant. With over 4.000 solar panels, we will generate enough energy to power 500 households. Our goal is to reach net zero emissions by 2030, and this solar power plant will play a key role in reducing up to 366 tonnes of CO2 annually.
