Sustainability creates added value for people, for the environment and for the company. As a global company, we have a special responsibility. We are facing up to the challenges of tomorrow in our daily actions. We create our structures, processes and systems according to ecological, economic and social aspects and monitor them closely. For us, the welfare of our employees, the development of environmentally friendly products, resource conservation and sustainable processes are part of our corporate approach and not more than goals.
The social and ecological responsibility of a company also covers the choice of business partners. In the Supplier Code of Conduct, Georg Fischer defines the requirements for all its suppliers of goods and services. The key issues of the Supplier Code are ethical conduct, respect for human rights, socially acceptable working conditions, adherence to environmental standards and implementation of management systems.
In the context of annual sustainability reporting, Georg Fischer compiles social indicators at all its sites. At production sites, environmental indicators are additionally gathered. These indicators compiled in the Sustainability Information System (SIS) are based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and are published in the Georg Fischer Sustainability Report.
What began 1802 with a small copper smelting plant and development works for new alloys, has since developed to become the global industrial concern as we know it today, established as a leading supplier of piping systems for the safe and reliable transport of liquids and gases.
