Our actions today will have an impact on the lives and the economic activities of future generations. Companies therefore have the task — and the duty — of operating sustainably, protecting the climate, conserving energy and resources, and ensuring a collective existence that is based on fairness and equal opportunity. And that’s exactly what we’re doing at Körber. Sustainability is part of our corporate strategy and firmly embedded in our value chains.
In the same way that we are shaping the technological transformation under our joint Körber brand with our five Business Areas, we have also defined a shared goal for our sustainability strategy: “Our activities enable a better life for current and future generations.” Everything we do as a company is oriented toward that goal.
Our founder, Kurt A. Körber, was convinced that “continued environmental protection does not diminish a company’s earning power, but helps to safeguard it in the long term.” He believed that companies that are aware of their responsibility play a leading role in this regard. They should take the initiative themselves and reduce their impact on the environment — “independently of the decisions of the legislators.” As a home for entrepreneurs at Körber, we still share this perspective.
