HENSOLDT is not only dedicated to ESG, but we firmly anchored ESG in our culture and have the full commitment of the entire organization. We launched a holistic sustainability programme in line with multinational guidelines and set ourselves ambitious ESG targets.
As part of our sustainability programme we put in place a comprehensive strategic framework that defines our initiatives within the areas of Environmental, Social and Governance. While we are intensively working on an update of our sustainability webpage, selected matters below will already give an impression on HENSOLDT’s ESG approach.
HENSOLDT’s long-term success as a business is based on the principles of cooperation, excellence, responsibility and innovation. These are values that apply to all our employees globally.
HENSOLDT’s Code of Conduct provides the basic rules for good and respectful cooperation within the company as well as with customers, suppliers and other partners. It also forms the basis of protecting ourselves against corruption and other violations of the law.
The company’s excellence is furthered by the high quality strategy and policy, which are implemented through effective business and quality management as well as efficient configuration and data management.
HENSOLDT also assumes responsibility for risk management and its employees, as well as for the environment and society it operates in.
In addition to competitive working conditions and appropriate remuneration, HENSOLDT offers and promotes diversity and equal opportunities within the company. With the company's strong presence in South Africa, HENSOLDT is also aware of its role as a responsible employer in the country. Local engineers are supported in their training and further education in order to offer them a long-term opportunity in their home country.
The conscious use of resources and proper disposal of hazardous substances to protect the environment and climate is a priority in all areas.
In particular, HENSOLDT focuses on energy reduction and measures to avoid and reduce emissions. The measures taken include reducing waste volumes and the use of paper and dangerous materials as well as comprehensive hazardous substance management, including risk assessments. Compliance with all legal and operational regulations is strictly monitored, and the REACH requirements (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) have been successfully implemented.
As a member of various organisations, forums and seminars, HENSOLDT assumes responsibility for the society it operates in. For example, the company is a member of the Federal Association of the German Security and Defence Industry, the Federal Association of the German Aerospace Industry and the Munich Security Conference – to name just a few.
