Endress+Hauser continued to achieve an above-average rating in all aspects evaluated in 2018, which included the categories of environment, labor practices, fair business practices and sustainable procurement. The company made notable improvements in terms of the documentation of existing processes, meaning that results are more traceable.

Today, more than 45,000 companies are rated by EcoVadis.

“An increasing number of customers place ever greater importance on the fact that companies are aware of their social responsibility. A positive result can therefore greatly influence a customer’s decision,” said Dr. Luc Schultheiss, Chief Financial Officer of the Endress+Hauser Group. The Group has compiled a sustainability report since 2015 in which it highlights social, environmental and economic aspects of company management. The EcoVadis rating serves as a strategic key performance indicator.

This year’s audit placed a positive emphasis on the company’s environmental policy, which has the high significance for the company. Implemented measures included the global provision of training that conveys the Code of Conduct and the values and culture of the family business to employees in a playful manner. The installation of charging stations for e-bikes and electric cars, which provide an incentive for switching to electro-mobility was also highlighted.
