Sustainability is one of our four core brand values (commitment, excellence and friendliness being the other three) that have served Endress+Hauser well for over 40 years. This same value has in the meantime become quite popular with many jumping on the sustainability bandwagon.
The difference for us is that this all-important value has had time to permeate our DNA, influencing our culture and benefiting our customers.
During the pandemic, we realised an important milestone for the Group, as we achieved platinum status with official sustainability assessor EcoVadis, placing us in the top 1% of businesses worldwide for our approach to sustainability. Sustainability in EcoVadis terms refers not just to the environment but also to labour rights, ethics and sustainable procurement.
What sets us apart, however, isn’t just that we score well in terms of standards others typically aspire to, but by the breadth of scope we apply to the term sustainable. Along with the green narrative, Endress+Hauser engages in many different socially responsible activities, such as our global Water Challenge – a concept that asks colleagues to organise group challenges in a bid to raise money for water projects in emerging countries. The donations are doubled by Endress+Hauser.
Perhaps it’s our steadfast commitment to long-term thinking and planning that is our most special sustainability-focused quality. As we approach our 70th birthday, we do so as a proud family company that has nearly 16,000 colleagues onboard and counting.
Our multifaceted interpretation of sustainability provides our customers with an ever-evolving yet stable partner for process automation in a world that is increasingly unpredictable.
