We grew up in an idyllic village landscape. Our ideals of honesty, open-mindedness and respect were instilled into us by our parents and grandparents. School days were over sooner than we would have thought – after that we stumbled into life. We are Anne-Catharina Graage and Ralf Garber.
Every day Anne-Catharina puts a smile on our faces – her good mood is contagious. She has been that way from the very beginning. Well-read, studied and always looking for new ways – she has profound insights into people, the latest technologies as well as expertise from all over the world. Her family and friends say that Anne-Catharina’s knowledge of human nature and her social skills have made her a warm and environmentally conscious businesswoman.
For us, family means both a sense of security and responsibility.
Standing in grandma’s kitchen, baking bread and cakes – Ralf enjoyed culinary delights from an early age, which he later proved as a master chef.
Small, but fine and substantial, that’s how it should be, that was always his credo – not only in terms of body size. Also, he always had good ideas. His idealism, coupled with the ability to inspire himself and others, are still Ralf’s assets today, according to his friends and his son. He has slowly but surely created his own little “Garber’s world”.
Now Anne-Catharina, the Hanseatic, environmentally conscious, always good-humored engineer, and Ralf, the progressive businessman and Hanseatic by choice, are jointly and idealistically expanding their climate office. A nordic climate agency (Klima-Kontor) – full of ideas for more sustainability to create atmosphere.
The next pages remain exciting.
B. Sc. Anne-Catharina Graage
As a passionate energy and environmental engineer, with in-depth background knowledge in mechanical engineering as well as previous education as an industrial business manager, Anne-Catharina Graage combines the best qualifications as technical managing director. Her gift for working with people was shaped, among other things, by her background having self-employed parents, her passion working for the common good and her love for horses and horseback riding.
Her personal core message is defined clearly: living vegan as well as ecologically-sustainable and working economically to shape our world in a positive way.
HER KEY AREAS OF WORK
Good food and drinks remain an integral part of his work today, with new qualifications being added in stages. Started as a chef and kitchen master, alongside his training as a savings bank specialist at the Sparkassenakademie, Ralf Garber brings extensive technical knowledge as an IHK-certified and certified European energy manager. The Klima-Kontor owes its existence to his enthusiasm, meticulousness and pursuit of ecological independence. The groundwork for this was done in 2018.
His core message is defined clearly: create more sustainable quality of life for the next generations through less scorched soil.
