Sustainability creates value – 365×24
“As Head of Plant Engineering, I am responsible for maintenance, energy supply, internal transport and investments, environmental stewardship and energy efficiency, as well as all communication with the relevant authorities, neighbors and the public. This also includes our certified management systems for the environment according to DIN ISO 14001 and for energy according to DIN ISO 50001.”
The efficient use of resources, energy efficiency, recyclability of products, minimization of emissions, safety in the workplace, continual innovation and open dialog with interest groups − these are the Group-wide principles of corporate social responsibility (CSR) at SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH. They apply 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. In keeping with these principles, the success of the Group is measured in terms of its economic, environmental and social performance.
Its commitment to sustainability is based on regular exchange with various interest groups – neighbors, the authorities, customers, employees, investors, banks, and suppliers. The adoption of a holistic mindset is necessary to take all of their interests into account. SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH meets this responsibility. The Company engages in dialog that goes beyond daily business at conferences and symposia, in panel debates, at trade fairs and university events, analyst and investor meetings, and through employee surveys and feedback discussions with other interest groups.
Material topics for the SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH Group are identified in dialog with interest groups and as part of a regularly conducted process.
