Friedrichshafen / Garching near Munich. Zeppelin Group continues its CSR reporting with the 2022 Sustainability Report. For the first time, the report is also available as a digital version.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is an integral part of company strategy for Zeppelin, and it also aligns with the “endlessness principle” enshrined in a foundation-owned company and the Group’s understanding of values. Beyond this, sustainability is a basic prerequisite for long-term safeguarding of economic success and expansion of competitiveness. Zeppelin assumes social and economic responsibility and makes an authentic contribution to effective climate and environmental protection.
The fourth report on sustainability has recently been published, and in it Zeppelin provides detailed information about its CSR strategy and developments since the last report published in 2021. Despite all the uncertainties, the Group has continued to implement its planned measures for achieving sustainability goals in the past year.
Climate neutrality is a key focus of CSR work. By 2030, all Zeppelin property will be converted to carbon-neutral operation, and the comprehensive installation of photovoltaic systems and targeted energy-saving measures will be further accelerated. These initiatives primarily contribute to the overarching goal of becoming a company which is carbon-neutral and sustainable in ongoing business operations by 2030. In addition, the company continues to focus more on avoiding waste, reducing fresh water consumption and using green electricity. In addition to its ecological and economic endeavors, Zeppelin also supports social projects and initiatives in the areas of sports, science, education, and culture, and is committed to charitable and humanitarian aims. Since Russia’s attack on Ukraine in February 2022, the Group has been supporting its employees with measures including evacuation from the war zone, brokering private accommodation in Poland, Czech Republic and Germany, as well as financial donations and non-cash benefits.
“Only through a sustainable, efficient and as such sparing use of our resources, along with a corporate social responsibility focus, a company can be economically successful in the long term and attractive as an employer. As we look towards further expanding and professionalizing the steps we are taking, sustainability and digitalization are also inextricably linked for us. This is because digital technologies can support and accelerate sustainable development in many areas, as well as making it more efficient. In keeping with our slogan “We Create Solutions”, we are therefore working every day to offer our customers tailor-made digital and sustainable solutions so we can be the best possible partner for our customers on their path to greater sustainability,” comments Christian Dummler, CFO and responsible Group Managing Director for the CSR division.
The Zeppelin Group Sustainability Report is available as a digital version and as a download in English and German from our website. Zeppelin reports annually on its engagement in the area of CSR as part of a report on sustainability, which also includes the Progress Report on the UN Global Compact. The reporting period corresponds to the calendar year.
