As a mid-sized, family-run group of companies, the bilstein group has always taken its social and ecological responsibility seriously. For us, however, sustainability is more than just a mandatory obligation: we want to align all our actions with it over the coming years.
Sustainability will play a role in every important operational decision because, as a family company, we know that only sustainable business processes have a future. This future has already begun in the bilstein group. Below, you will find many examples of our projects on the road to sustainability.
Our Holistic Approach Towards Sustainability
For us, sustainability is more than just reducing the carbon footprint of a product. As we work towards becoming a more sustainable company, we try to cover the entire scope of the issue.
From our perspective, sustainability is comprised of three key components:
- Economy - this involves the production of high-quality and durable products that take equal account of environmental protection and affordable mobility
- Ecology - this means a focus on processes and structures that conserve resources as much as possible
- Social Aspects - these focus on appropriate wages and working conditions along the entire supply chain
Sustainability is therefore not limited to producing the smallest possible carbon footprint but also to creating long-term jobs with decent working conditions and living wages. For us, however, sustainable production also means manufacturing products using economically viable processes that minimize negative impacts on the environment - all while conserving energy and natural resources.
