Our understanding of sustainability

Sustainability is viewed holistically at Zeppelin, and environmental, economic, and social aspects are considered to be of equal importance and value. 


Our ambition is to make an active and authentic contribution to climate and environmental protection. We are proactively tackling the current challenges of our time and are developing environmentally friendly as well as technically and financially feasible solutions. This will enable us to increase our positive impact on the climate and the environment, while at the same time placing great importance on the economical, responsible use of our resources. Among other things, we have set ourselves the goal of becoming a CO2 neutral company by 2030. 


For Zeppelin, economic sustainability is a basic requirement for the long-term safeguarding of economic success and expansion of our competitiveness. Sustainability is firmly anchored in our corporate strategy and corporate values.  


Zeppelin assumes social responsibility in the spirit of sustainable action. In this way, we maintain and further expand our attractiveness as an employer.  This is essential to ensure a high level of qualification and motivation among our employees while also maintaining and improving our employee retention and development. 

You find an overview of sustainability at Zeppelin in our CSR booklet.


We in the Zeppelin family do not view social and environmental commitment as an obligation, but rather as a framework and pre-requisite for ensuring sustainability, our appeal as an employer and lasting business success.

- Peter Gerstmann, Chairman of the Management Board
