As a foundation-owned company, sustainability is a matter of course for Zeppelin and is in line with the infinity principle and the company’s values. In addition, sustainability is a basic prerequisite for long-term safeguarding of economic success and expanding competitiveness. Zeppelin thus assumes social responsibility and makes a genuine contribution to effective climate and environmental protection.
With the second report on sustainability, which has now been published, Zeppelin provides detailed information on its sustainability strategy and developments since the last report published in 2020. The focus here is on the progress made in achieving goals, which were made in the action areas defined as essential. "I am very pleased with the progress made and the measures that have now been defined to secure the path to CO2 neutrality in 2030 as well as the further goals in CSR management," says Christian Dummler, CFO and responsible Group Managing Director for the CSR department. In addition to defining the target for CO2 neutrality by 2030 and the further progress in CSR management, the current reporting focuses on the results of the CSR stakeholder survey.
