ESG sustainable policy guideline
As a company, ESG is obliged to comply with the principles of sustainable business. This involves achieving an appropriate balance between the (partly) competing aspects of market economy, occupational health and safety, energy efficiency, environmental protection and responsibility towards society as a whole.
ESG is convinced that a company can only be successful in the long term if it has implemented sustainable business as a strategic target. The aim of sustainable company management at ESG is to guarantee security and profitability for the company, its owners and staff at the same time as preserving the future of the natural environment and providing a valuable contribution to overall society.
ESG believes that acting in a responsible, legal manner is the basis for sustainability in general. It is for this reason that it has firmly anchored the "Compliance Code of Conduct" in its business processes and introduced the role of environmental protection officer. The Compliance Code of Conduct applies equally to the company, its employees as well as to business partners.
This provides ESG with a solid, future-oriented foundation for sustainable business-related development and efficient mechanisms and specifications for cooperation with stakeholders in keeping with holistic added value.
ESG expressly acknowledges its specific responsibility as
- An enterprise that uses and consumes natural resources
- A considerate employer
- An active member of society on a local level and as part of a global network
At ESG, adoption of this responsibility is evident due to
- Unlimited respect for human dignity
- Regard for human rights
- Compliance with fair, secure and social working conditions including strict condemnation of child and forced labour
- Cost-effective and environmentally friendly use of natural resources within the entire value chain.
ESG feels obliged to implement, maintain and continually develop its sustainable policy at all sites appropriately according to overall societal changes. In this process, it will also meet the requirements of established certification and auditing organisations. ESG managers will adopt responsibility for implementing this guideline and associated targets and will actively contribute to achieving them, as will all employees in their respective area. At ESG, this basic understanding of sustainable company management and, likewise, appropriate behaviour, is compulsory for its business partners as a necessary foundation of all cooperation.
