Sustainability Management

For us, economic success and sustainability are inextricably linked. That is why Heubach has integrated the essential aspects of a sustainability strategy into corporate policy and into the respective processes via the corresponding management systems

Organization of Sustainability Management

Sustainability management at Heubach is embedded in the company organization in the form of a staff unit.

Overriding responsibility for sustainability is anchored in the Heubach management team.


The Sustainability Officer is responsible for the further development, coordination and monitoring of sustainability activities.  Her role is to be a contact point between management and the relevant specialist departments.

The operational implementation of the sustainability activities—from sustainability-relevant processes to defined objectives and associated measures, the coordination of sustainability-oriented corporate policy, and defining the sustainability program—takes place together with the management and an interdisciplinary team.

 

Sustainability-Oriented Corporate Policy

For Heubach, economic success and sustainability are inextricably linked. That is why we have integrated the essential aspects of a sustainability strategy into corporate policy and into the respective processes via the corresponding management systems.

First and foremost, the quality features of our business policy are the continuous improvement of products, services and processes, taking into account the relevant environmental and safety aspects – secondly, the active commitment and, thirdly, the conscious interaction of employees, executives and management.

To underscore the importance of these values and beliefs, we have formulated the following three guidelines:

Ensuring a High Standard of Quality

Assuming quality responsibility means for us the obligation to fulfill the requirements demanded
of us. This includes the high quality of our products and services, adherence to delivery times, comprehensive advice for our customers, and protecting the interests of our employees.

Protection of the Environment and Energy-Efficient Action

To avoid environmental impacts, we continuously improve our products and processes. We ensure the monitoring, testing and evaluation of products and processes through comprehensive HSE and quality management.

As part of our energy management, we not only commit ourselves to optimizing the use of energy in our production, but also to increasing energy efficiency in the procurement of new plant and equipment, as well as in product development.

HR responsibility

We are aware that achieving the stated quality, environmenta, and energy objectives would not be possible without our employees: They are the key to success. As a result, employee satisfaction and ensuring occupationalhealth and safety are our primary goals.

Responsibility in the supply chain

As a fair and reliable partner company, we also expect our suppliers to commit to adhering to ethical principles in their business operations. In this context, the primary focus is human rights and employment law, safety standards, and the responsible use of local resources.

Compliance and business ethics

The trust of our stakeholders is of crucial importance for the success and reputation of the Heubach GER Group. For this reason, compliance with company-specific and legal provisions intended to protect human rights and the environment as well as to prevent corruption is naturally a top priority for us.
