Corporate social responsibility goes far beyond compliance with regulations. It covers how companies deal with their economic and social impact on the environment and how they shape their relationship with their stakeholders, such as employees, trading partners or the government. Environmental management at NETZSCH is not limited to creating a healthy working environment for employees. "We are aware that our consumption of resources and energy must not be at the expense of future generations", Hans Vetter, director of integrated quality management at NETZSCH Pumps & Systems. Since 2018, NETZSCH has been evaluated annually by EcoVadis concerning corporate social responsibility. Fortunately, we have been able to improve year after year.
