As a family-owned company we are committed to environmentally friendly, fair, long-term business practices. Furthermore, we intend to create measurable added value for the sustainable development of our company, society, and the environment. The goal we set ourselves regarding the way we conduct business is also correspondingly high: We want to make Voith the benchmark in sustainability issues.
We have our sustainability performance constantly examined through external ratings. The rating agency ISS ESG once again awarded Voith Prime status. Based on over 100 criteria, Voith’s environmental, social and economic performance has been rated above average. Ratings such as these are increasingly a major factor for banks as well. This is what sustainable business is all about - environmental and societal improvements leading to tangible economic benefits.
