Sustainability Sustainability management for economic, ecological, and social value

We take on the social responsibility of our company out of conviction. Our vision is a world without wasted labor, raw materials, and energy.

Fairness, respect, and trust guide our work — providing direction to colleagues, as well as to customers, partners, and suppliers.
The greatest contribution we make to sustainability as a company is through our innovations, whose positive effects multiply with each unit sold.

Specifically, we use intelligent control technology, optimized algorithms, smart control systems, complex optimization algorithms, and artificial intelligence.

In our own production, we lead by example with sustainable efforts: aiming to reduce CO₂ emissions and the consumption of valuable resources such as gas, water, and electricity.

In 2023, with the goal of reducing CO₂ emissions by 30%, a photovoltaic system was installed on the roof of our headquarters in Wiesbaden.

Sustainability management also includes social and regional sponsorship.

Sustainable — for us and our customers

We explicitly commit to the goals of the

  • 2030 Agenda of the United Nations with its 17 defined sustainability goals (SDGs)
  • ILO (International Labour Organization)

In the context of our target industries, we support our customers’ sustainability goals with forward-thinking innovations:

Sustainable Collaboration: Ecoprofit

Engaging with local companies and the regional community is a special priority for Eckelmann AG. Ecoprofit is a cooperative project between municipalities and the local economy. The goal is to reduce operating costs while simultaneously conserving natural resources.
For years, we have utilized the opportunities of the Ecoprofit partner program to receive efficient and diverse support in implementing climate and environmental protection issues. This includes informational events, collaboration with authorities, joint workshops, and best practice examples.
