Taking responsibility – living responsibility Corporate social responsibility

Environmental, economic, and social sustainability together form the key to a world of tomorrow that’s worth living in. Corporate responsibility in all ESG areas – environmental, social, and governance – is also a high priority for the Stabilus Group.

That’s why we are assessed by three rating agencies that reflect our stakeholders and the most relevant ESG issues in a particular way: CDP, Ecovadis, and Sustainalytics. The goal is to achieve the top ratings in sustainability by 2030. To do so, we will be consistently implementing a set of measures that have already been planned out. 

Sustainable Development Goals – with relevance to corporate policy

Stabilus has committed itself to six United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that can be directly influenced by corporate policy: quality education, gender equality, clean water and sanitation, decent work and economic growth, responsible consumption and production, and climate action.

We are focusing on the following areas in particular:

  • CO2 emissions
  • Energy consumption and management
  • Water consumption and management
  • Occupational safety
  • Diversity (e.g., women in leadership positions)
  • Attracting and training skilled employees
  • Sustainability in the value chain
  • Compliance

“We walk the talk” – from the plan to concrete measures

When it comes to responsibility toward our employees, it’s not just occupational safety and the respect for human rights along the entire value chain that are near to our hearts. Our goal is also to make our contribution toward fulfilling, motivating work.

With regard to greenhouse gas emissions, we have defined CO2 reduction targets to be achieved by 2030 in three stages: -30% of Scope 1, -100% of Scope 2 (i.e., transition to 100% renewable energy and internal power generation from renewable sources), and an additional -25% of Scope 3.

All sites worldwide are following a clear roadmap for this. It includes direct savings in natural gas and electricity, determination of the carbon footprint of our products, CO2 reductions in new research and development projects, and measures for CO2 reduction within the value chain.
