The Pillars of our Corporate Social Responsibility

Steel plays an important role in all areas of human life. We are actively working on the development and application of resource-saving processes for steel production, measures in waste management and a consequent climate protection policy.

 We take our corporate responsibility seriously in many ways. The pillars of our corporate responsibility are composed as follows:

  • Acting responsibly is at the heart of our corporate culture.

  • We promote innovation: Thanks to increasing investment in research and development, we can continuously develop and improve products and production processes. The focus of development work is on solutions in the areas of energy efficiency, mobility, cost reduction and raw material efficiency.

  • With the help of risk management, we identify and mitigate risks at an early stage. Our risk management system focuses on group-wide procedural instructions.

  • Today we are considered an international benchmark in the steel industry in terms of environmental compatibility, emissions neutrality, and energy and raw material efficiency.

  • As an international group, we employ around 49,000 people worldwide. A major concern is occupational safety, especially the avoidance of accidents at work. Education - ongoing and apprenticeship training - is an important instrument in sustaining a workforce with the highest level of qualifications.

  • voestalpine Wire Technology actively takes responsibility towards society and supports social, cultural and educational issues in a wide variety of ways. When selecting projects, we place particular emphasis on ensuring projects comply with our company principles and generate sustainable benefits for society.
