Approach and goals

Sustainability makes a significant contribution to achieving our corporate goals. Throughout the Dürr Group, sustainability is firmly embedded in order to meet our economic, ecological and social responsibility and to seize the related business opportunities.

Our sustainability concept

Our sustainability concept consists of 5 fields of action, which are substantial for the orientation of our sustainability management. We have visualized our five fields of action in the form of a leaf in order to enhance the recognition value for stakeholders. Selected products that make a special contribution to sustainability are also to be equipped with this in the future.

Value Creation & Supply Chain: Within our own business activities we consistently put attention on measures to reduce our environmental footprint. At the same time, we focus on a transparent and sustainable supply chain. For further information please refer also to → our climate strategy.

Employees & Qualification: Our company considers itself an attractive and fair employer that offers its employees a wide range of career opportunities and options for further development.

Management & Governance: Our corporate activities are geared toward profitable growth and on trend-setting business areas and industries. In doing so, we always observe the principles of good corporate governance.
