At Hettich, we’re dedicated to a sustainable corporate policy, guided by the motto ‘Act today – think of tomorrow.’ Our commitment to sustainability is deeply rooted in our history and values as a family business with 135 years of experience. Our long-term goal is to harmonise economic success with social, societal, and ecological responsibility. We’ve been at the forefront of sustainability reporting, having published our first report in 2015, long before it gained widespread recognition in public perception.
Social Responsibility – ‘We care for each other’
At Hettich, our primary focus is on our people. Health and safety at work are paramount, and we prioritise well-founded training and ongoing education, fostering diversity, equal opportunities, and personal responsibility among our colleagues. We aim to create an attractive working and living environment that enables individuals to grow and thrive by leveraging their strengths. Our strategy emphasises a sustainable and healthy Hettich culture, with a focus on digital competence, modern cooperation, and a sustainable working environment.
Societal Responsibility – ‘We care for others’
As a responsible member of society, Hettich extends its commitment beyond corporate boundaries. We actively contribute to education, science, art, culture, and social causes through monetary and in-kind donations. Our support also extends to sponsoring activities and promoting the voluntary efforts of our colleagues.
Ecological Responsibility – ‘We care for the environment’
At Hettich, we understand the importance of preserving the Earth’s resources for future generations. Our Managing Director, Jana Schönfeld, emphasises our ongoing efforts to improve resource efficiency, reduce energy consumption, and prevent environmental pollution, which is deeply embedded in our corporate culture. Sustainability principles have guided us since the early 1990s, and we’ve recently integrated climate neutrality goals into our corporate strategy, prioritising avoidance and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
We are determined to make a positive impact on our environment, and together, we work as a team to shape our sustainability agenda and ensure continuous development. Hettich Australia is dedicated to living up to its participatory culture where every member can contribute their strengths, passions, and ideas to the fullest.
“Together as a team, we shape the sustainability agenda and ensure continuous development,”
Ute Schulz, Corporate Responsibility Team.
