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:
Supply chain management
Compliance and law
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.
