Corporate Social Responsibility
As a medium-sized family business, we feel responsible for making our contribution to sustainable business. That is why we implement our own guidelines and principles on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) at our locations. This includes topics such as the environment, sustainability as well as human and labour rights.
Social fairness – environmental and economic sustainability
We pay attention to fair business practices, we pursue an employee-oriented human resources policy, we use natural resources sparingly to protect the climate and the environment, we also take responsibility in the supply chain and expect the same in the commitment of our employees on site.
