Zehnder Group's sustainability strategy

We have firmly enshrined the company's objects of sustainable and long-term value creation for all stakeholders in the statutes of the Zehnder Group.

Our sustainability strategy is geared towards the three focus areas of environment, employees, and society. In order to systematically develop our sustainable activities at Zehnder, we endeavour to analyse our impact on society and the environment based on facts, formulate ambitious but achievable goals, and report on our progress in a transparent manner.

    By doing so, we wish to initiate change processes in order to make a lasting contribution to a liveable future. We support the 1.5-degree goal set at the Paris Climate Change Conference and undertake to commit to the aims of the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).

    We take the outdoor climate into account at all times over the course of our business activities. We manufacture climate-friendly products for a healthy indoor climate. In doing so, we embrace circular life cycles in our production processes to save resources along the entire value chain. Using renewable energy sources and energy-efficient processes helps us on our journey towards climate-neutral production. Our key aim is to permanently cut harmful greenhouse gas emissions to zero.

     

    At Zehnder, we promote an excellent working atmosphere for and among our employees. We want to ensure equal opportunities, fairness, and diversity across all levels and for all staff to be happy in their roles. We also invest in our employees' personal and professional development and aim to foster a culture of lifelong learning.

    A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. We require our suppliers to pursue the same sustainability goals as us and transparently report their environmental and social impact along the value chain. We also strive to adopt ethically correct corporate governance to protect the interests of shareholders and other stakeholders and guarantee responsible and transparent corporate governance geared towards sustainable success.
