Corporate Social Responsibility

"Because we
think ahead."

Our sustainability practices focus on integrating environmentally-friendly, socially responsible and economically viable practices into all of our business processes. The goal is to generate long-term value for society, the environment and the company itself. In the following document, we describe several key elements that are foundational to our sustainability endeavors:

Environmental protection

  • Implementing environmentally-friendly practices in company processes.
  • Reducing our energy consumption through the use of renewable energy sources and efficient technologies.
  • Minimizing waste and promoting recycling

Social responsibility

  • Promoting ethical business practices and socially responsible decision-making.
  • Creating an inclusive work environment that supports diversity and equal opportunity.

Economic viability

  • Considering economic, social, and ecological factors in strategic decision-making processes.
  • Creating long-term value through sustainable business models and investments.

Supply chain management

  • Involving suppliers and partners in sustainable practices.
  • Transparency in the supply chain, in order to ensure that ethical standards are complied with.

Employee participation

  • Involving employees in sustainable initiatives and projects.
  • Training and sensitizing our workforce on environmentally-friendly and socially responsible practices.

Compliance and law

  • Complying with statutory regulations on environmental protection and social responsibility.
  • Proactively adjusting to new sustainability regulations and standards.


We ask EcoVadis, an independent certification institute based in Paris, annually to confirm our engagement in the area of Corporate Social Responsibility (work safety, human rights, fair business practices, sustainable procurement, environment). In 2023 we received the Gold-Medal and therefore in our industry we even rank among the top 4 % of all evalued suppliers by EcoVadis. Our more detailed Sustainability Profile 2023 is also ready for download in our download area.

Also, since 2017 we  have been committed to the UN Global Compact corporate responsibility initiative and its principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption. Thus, we are part of the world´s largest corporate responsibilty and sustainability initiative which has the aim to realise the vision of a more sustainable an inclusive global economy.
