Besides the environmental and economic factors, other aspects – such as the social component and a company’s responsibility towards its employees, customers, partners, suppliers, investors and society as a whole – also play a central role.
Our employees are our most valuable asset and their well-being and health are our top priority. We cultivate respectful relations between equals and live a modern organisational structure characterised by flat hierarchies, agile project set-ups, transparency and a high degree of personal responsibility.
Work-life balance is an absolute must for us, and flexible working hours and the option to work from home let us achieve an optimal balance between leisure/family and work. Also important for us is to promote diversity at our company and ensure equal opportunities regardless of age, gender, origin and social background.
In times of crisis, such as the current Corona pandemic, the health and safety of our employees is our top concern. We take every conceivable measure to protect them – from devising hygiene concepts and providing them with FFP2 masks to switching entirely to home-working (where the nature of the job permits).
We also place great emphasis on good and trusting relations with our customers, suppliers and business partners. To ensure outstanding service and product safety is of course another important aspect of sustainability when thinking of our customers and business partners.
To support the refrigeration technology experts of tomorrow, refrigeration schools can gain insight into our Bluezero® technology in the form of lectures and production tours. We also allow international delegations of refrigeration technology experts to visit our premises in cooperation with the German Federal environmental foundation Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt (DBU), the aim being to transfer knowledge in the use of water as a refrigerant to other countries as well.
Just as important is our duty to live up to our investors’ expectations and to spend the funds they commit wisely.
But corporate social responsibility also means contributing to society as a whole and, in this area, we pursue a highly informative and educational role. While air travel is widely condemned as a source of emissions, hardly anyone is aware of the refrigeration industry’s much larger contribution to climate change. For this reason, we run a Cool Insights blog in which we provide easy-to-understand and well-prepared content and background information on the refrigeration industry.
