Working together for one sustainable future

We have been a pioneer for the last 200 years and will continue to play a leading role in our industry. This applies – in addition to quality and service – in particular to sustainability.

Sustainability has always had a high priority in Wieland’s 200-year company history and is a core component of our Group strategy. Today, we are in the midst of a transformation that is affecting the entire economy and placing high demands on us. We are ambitious not only in terms of our immediate business goals, but also in terms of the demands of future generations. That is why we have set ourselves ambitious targets in our sustainability strategy. These cover the areas of environment, social and governance (ESG).

Sustainability strategy

As a company with a long tradition, the Wieland Group is supported by a strong foundation of values. Our values shape our actions as well as our corporate culture. For us, long-term thinking, an awareness of the social and ecological consequences of our business activities and economic success go hand in hand. With our ambitious sustainability roadmap, we have consistently set out on the path to a more sustainable future.

Environment

We take responsibility for the efficient use of raw materials and for reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gases. We have set ourselves ambitious targets for this in our sustainability strategy. We achieve these by decarbonizing processes and products and closing material cycles.

Social

In accordance with the global Wieland sustainability strategy, we assume social responsibility everywhere in our sphere of influence – in our company, in our neighborhood and in our supply chains. We respect labor and human rights, are committed to occupational health and safety, promote diversity and enable equal opportunities.

Governance

We implement the requirements resulting from applicable law and the demands of our stakeholders with the aid of modern corporate governance instruments. These include clear structures and values as well as management and control mechanisms – for example, risk management that also involves our business partners. Thus, a key focus of our sustainability strategy is also responsibility in the supply chain.
