Sustainability

At Zeppelin, sustainability means making a long-term genuine contribution to the environment and society as a sustainable company, which is drawn from the strength of our corporate culture.

Our Vision

We practice our understanding of sustainability Group-wide. By doing so, we aim to increase our appeal to employees and customers, strengthen our brand, and advance our market position.

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/Labor Director
