The HUBER+SUHNER Group places high priority on environmental protection and sustainability. Our corporate culture is characterised by its long-term orientation and holistic approach. Our ethical business practices are set down in our business and ethics code and apply internationally. Honesty, fairness, respect and full awareness of our social responsibility – this is what we base our activities on in all countries and cultures where we do business.
We use natural resources carefully, and make sure to keep our CO2 footprint – created mostly through production and logistics – as small as possible. We use a systematic quality and environmental management system that ensures all international standards are adhered to.
Social responsibility at HUBER+SUHNER
During 2019, the Executive Committee of HUBER+SUHNER passed a concept to promote the integration of the basic values of social responsibility into the company’s everyday business activities. At the heart of the concept is the introduction and collection of 25 performance indicators from the core subjects of human rights, labour practices, the environment, fair operating practices, customer issues, and community involvement and development. Beginning in 2020, these performance indicators will be collected worldwide. The data collected should reflect the current status of HUBER+SUHNER as well as form the basis for identifying opportunities for improvement, setting targets and implementing actions.
In addition, workshops will be held throughout 2020 in the regions as well as in the business divisions and staff departments at headquarters. HUBER+SUHNER managers will be able to familiarise themselves with the basic principles, core subjects and fields of action, and define the focal points of corporate social responsibility for the coming years.
