For the uvex group, economic sustainability represents a continuation of value-driven, qualitative growth at both national and international level. Particular value is placed on independence from banks in order to maintain a solid financial profile even during difficult times and remain fit for the future. The value-oriented focus is now being expanded to include sustainability aspects and the definition of objectives for climate-neutral growth, which involves capping or (preferably) cutting the uvex group's CO2 emissions.
At the uvex group, economic sustainability also means being a secure and attractive employer to both current and future employees.
Integrity and lawful conduct in business activities form part of the uvex group's self-perception. The Corporate Compliance Guidelines outline fundamental values and a code of conduct for employees. Business partners in the supply chain must comply with the uvex group's social standard.
The value orientation is now being expanded to include the sustainability perspective with the long-term and ambitious goal of climate-neutral growth for the uvex group, which is to be achieved in particular through improved resource efficiency.
