Sustainability - Corporate Responsibility
Focus on social responsibility. As a full-range supplier of railway infrastructure systems, we are aware of our social responsibility. Our durable products enable the operation of sustainable transport systems. The binding basis for our business relations is the voestalpine Code of Conduct. It regulates ethically and legally impeccable actions in all areas of the company and in our supply chains.
Social responsibility for our employees. The well-being of our employees is of particular concern to us. Our top priority is maximizing occupational safety and avoiding occupational accidents. Continuous training and development of our employees, equal opportunity, no tolerance for discrimination and a culture of open communication consolidate our position as an attractive employer.
Railway infrastructure for a clean environment. We minimize our environmental impact with extremely durable and low-maintenance products. To encourage and evaluate these developments, we rely also on comprehensive considerations based on environmental product declarations (EPDs) and holistic life cycle assessment (LCA).
With greentec steel to sustainable CO2-neutral production. The steel in our products is also going green. Under the term greentec steel, we at voestalpine are transforming our production processes toward CO2 neutrality while maintaining the highest quality and durability.
Certified responsibility. To be able to present our activities in a transparent and comparable way and to anchor our claim to continuous improvement, we rely not only on ISO certifications for our occupational health and safety, energy and environmental management systems but also on the globally recognized EcoVadis assessment. Here we are among the companies with a pioneering role in the international environment. The Corporate Responsibility Report clearly presents the group-wide activities of the voestalpine AG.
