Vision

As a technological leader, we invest in a better tomorrow

Our vision is market leadership through technology leadership — we turn entrepreneurial thinking into customer success. 

This also means that technology is not an end in itself. It supports companies — also when it’s a matter of protecting the environment. That’s why for us, technology leadership also means making our contributions to a sustainable future. This is completely in the spirit of our founder, Kurt A. Körber, who had already developed guidelines for resource-friendly business back in the 1980s and reached the conclusion that “The aim can only be to do business in the most environmentally friendly way possible and, wherever possible, to replace quantitative growth by qualitative growth.”

We regard this as our responsibility. In the process, we are convinced that collaboration leads to success. That’s why people are the heart of our sustainability initiatives — people who implement our plans and drive forward the achievement of our sustainability targets: our employees and all of our other stakeholders, be they customers, partners, investors or society as a whole. 

Our thinking on the basis of our sustainability strategy is always one or more steps ahead. We develop and use technologies in a future-oriented and responsible way. Together with our stakeholders, we leverage technology on a new level in order to help shape sustainable change in all of our interests. That’s our promise. 

Sustainability is a fixed element of our corporate strategy:

We regard protecting the environment, committing ourselves to society, and upholding ethical standards as obligations as well as motivations. We want to achieve long-term and sustainable growth by balancing ecological and social interests and corporate ethics.
As Kurt A. Körber said, “I am convinced that continued environmental protection does not diminish a company’s earning power but helps to safeguard it in the long term.”
