- Ian Poulter Teeing Off on Climate Protection

With his striking and remarkable appearance, the 35-year-old Englishman
is one of the world's most professional golfers. He is extremely successful.
In the final of the Volvo Match Play Championship in Spain last weekend,
"Poults," as he is called, finished in first place. As of immediately, the
pro golfer and Schüco, the leading provider of Green Technology and Clean
Energy from Solar and Windows around the building envelope, are joining
forces. Both golf and Schüco feature a perfect harmony between nature and
technology. And high aspirations in terms of precision, perfection,
professionalism, and sustainability. To focus even more attention on these
qualities, a team of world-class golfers tees off around the globe on climate
protection, led by world's number three golfer, Martin Kaymer.

Play Championship and was a member of Europe's victorious Ryder Cup team.

That means clean energy from solar products and windows. And the
contribution that Schüco makes to the environment with pioneering building
envelopes. To be more precise, with Energy3: Saving Energy - Generating
Energy - Networking Energy. Window and façade systems not only save energy
due to optimum thermal insulation, they also generate energy thanks to
efficient solar solutions. This creates an excess of energy which can be used
by means of intelligent networking. For building functions, as well as for
everyday life. The result is a significant step towards energy
self-sufficiency. Towards the sustainable conservation of natural resources.
And for a secure future. With 5250 employees and 12,000 partner companies,
Schüco is active in 78 countries worldwide and achieved turnover of 2.38
billion euros
