Sustainability as a corporate objective
Climate protection, preservation of our environment, and conservation of natural resources are among the most pressing issues worldwide. As a company in the automotive industry, GRAMMER has a special responsibility to lead by example. In 2021, we therefore launched a comprehensive program with the aim of operating even more sustainably worldwide. The aim was to reduce CO2 emissions by at least 50 percent by the end of the decade. We can today say with pride that we have actually made faster progress than originally planned.
With our Green Company initiative, we are building on our most important resource: our employees across the globe, who are transforming GRAMMER into a Green Company with their good ideas and wide-ranging areas of expertise. Since this initiative was launched, we have been implementing more and more projects to save energy, avoid waste, recycle raw materials, and make production processes more environmentally friendly. One of our most important action areas in this regard is the development of sustainable products from environmentally friendly materials. In this way, we are also supporting the automotive industry in further refining and optimizing its products.
Environment Holistic environmental protection
Holistic environmental protection is a very important part of our corporate philosophy. Our corporate principles define active protection of the environment as an important goal. We make our contribution by developing and producing our products using environmentally friendly production as well as through hazard-free use and disposal.
Quality A passion for top quality
Our work needs to be flawless in order to meet the needs and expectations of our internal and external customers. Maintaining our high quality standards and continuous improvement are our ongoing tasks.
To us, sustainability means more than protecting the environment. It also involves assuming social responsibility by balancing the interests of our shareholders, employees, and customers and those of the social environment in which we operate.
GRAMMER AG has therefore launched numerous initiatives to support social and cultural projects and educational institutions in the Oberpfalz region as well as at many other locations worldwide.
GRAMMER is aware of its responsibility and is committed to the core labor standards of the International Labor Organization (ILO) and the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
