Sustainably successful with E3
As a family-run company with strong values, we act today to ensure our long-term success for tomorrow. One way we do this is by investing in our employees and their skills development, as well as optimising our eco-balance and developing solutions that are more energy efficient. Thinking and acting for the long term helps us systematically avoid risks and take advantage of entrepreneurial opportunities earlier and with greater intensity. Although the maxim of sustainability is inherent in everything we do, we have focused on particular sustainable activities in our E3 approach.
Implementing life-cycle thinking revolutionises the way we consider product development, resource use and our ecological footprint. Today, we recycle internally 80 % of our plastic waste and several products contain post-consumer recycled materials.
Ethical principles determine how we act towards our customers, colleagues and society. In 2018, we achieved ahead of target our 2020 diversity ambition – more than 17 % of women in leading management and expert positions. We also introduced our group-wide Integrity Alert System Let’s Talk.
Contributing to the energy transition, we optimise the use of energy via environmentally friendly pioneering solutions. With the acquisition of E3/DC, a company specialised in energy storage,we complete our integrated energy management system offer.
