Building a better tomorrow, today

As a leading global company helping to electrify the world, sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. Not only are we enabling companies to unlock the potential of DC power and bring clean energy to industry, we also feel a particular responsibility to develop products that go beyond regulatory requirements to ensure protection of our employees, our communities, and our planet. Guided by environmental, social, and governance priorities, our sustainability efforts are integrated throughout our business and strictly comply with internationally recognized ethical and legal principles.

Leading with purpose

We take pride in our commitment to environmental stewardship. We’ve been diligently reporting our sustainable endeavors from carbon footprint reduction to community engagement, since 2017. What’s more, we’ve participated in the UN Global compact initiative, the world’s largest and most important organization for promoting responsible corporate governance. Based on ten universal principles and its Sustainable Development Goals, the UN Global Compact pursues the vision of an inclusive, sustainable global economy for the benefit of all people, communities, and markets.

Our sustainability strategy involves taking responsibility for our supply chains, respecting human rights, prohibiting child labor, and avoiding conflict materials. It also includes resource-friendly product design, highly efficient, flexible production processes and striving for continuous improvement in other vital ESG key performance indicators. In 2022, for example, we reduced our carbon emissions by around 14% year-on-year to 7,875 tons. The severity of work-related injuries has also decreased significantly. At the same time, with our products and solutions, we want to make a relevant contribution to protecting the environment by supporting the transition towards sustainable transportation powered by green energy.

In light of challenging economic times, particularly when it comes to energy in Europe, the degree of self-sufficiency and its ability to minimize our energy supply risk has taken on a whole new significance.
Our internal sustainable energy concept thus ensures that we can significantly cut our energy costs at this site and thereby reduce our dependence on external energy supplies, making it possible to produce in a climate-neutral manner at competitive prices, even in a comparatively expensive business location like Germany.
