Germany calls for heating cuts to counter energy crisis

The head of the German Federation of Industry and Trade, Peter Adrian, called today, Tuesday, to lower the heating temperature in offices amid the gas shortage crisis.

“Every (temperature) matters,” Adrian said in a press release. “In my warehouse, I have to regulate the temperature around 17 or 19 degrees, depending on how many people work there from time to time, and maybe it can be lowered “. “

“You can also turn down the heating in offices a bit. Then you may have to wear warmer clothes,” he added.

Adrian’s statement drew criticism from the German Trade Union Confederation.
“It is irresponsible to ask employees to freeze or wear thick jackets,” union president Anya Bell said.
