Endress+Hauser Group Sustainability Report
Responsibility at Endress+Hauser
The idea of sustainability is deeply rooted in the culture of our family business. Our goal is therefore to combine economic success with ecological and social responsibility. The sustainability report is intended to help us make further progress along this path.
We view sustainability as a holistic concept encompassing an economic, social and ecological dimension. All three dimensions are closely linked and dependent on each other. Only when we are able to fulfill our social and ecological responsibilities can we achieve longterm economic success. On the other hand, only economically successful companies can exercise their responsibility in regard to environment and society.
In 2014 we laid the groundwork for comprehensive Group-wide sustainability reporting. In the meantime, we have created corresponding internal structures and processes to capture the defined key indicators on a Group-wide basis. The results and the findings also found their way into our new Strategy 2020+, which incorporates various objectives closely associated with the issue of sustainability.
Additionally, we are also measuring our success based on the results of the EcoVadis audit, which we utilize to examine the sustainability of our business processes each year. Our aim is to place in the top 25 percent of the audited companies. Producing good results from our regular customer and employee surveys will be one of our strategic goals in the future as well.
By combining this data with economic indicators such as sales growth, return on sales and equity ratio, we gain a holistic picture of the company’s development.
