For people and the environment
Wilke takes responsibility for the nature, environment and people in the region.
Wilke supports the Wuppertal Zoo and, as "Gold-Netzpatin", the realisation of the Arlandia project, one of the largest free-flight aviaries in Europe. Macaws, flamingos and other birds are to live in a large aviary in which visitors can move around. Furthermore a breeding station is planned there, in which rare parrots are bred. With the Arlandia open-air project, Wuppertal Zoo is making an important contribution to the protection of species and the conservation of endangered bird species.

Heat which is recovered from the production department covers almost the entire heating requirements of the company. The use of ultra-modern machinery reduces electricity consumption. Production waste is recycled or disposed of properly. Since 2013, Wilke only uses green electricity for its production.
For many years, Wilke has supported local institutions and societies with generous donations. Every year, the recipients are carefully selected and must have shown a sustainable commitment to people in the 'Bergisches Land' region around Wuppertal.
