Corporate responsibility

"Our economic success enables us to live up to our social responsibility. At the same time, our socially responsible actions enable our economic success."

Your Christiane Riefler-Karpa, Matthias Grosser, Jürgen Gambert | Memmert Executive Board

The word “sustainable” is not a modern creation. It was first used in the 18th century to appeal for the careful handling of wood. Because of the ruthless deforestation in emerging industrial countries, the first environmental protection movement was also born. Those who act sustainably have a long tradition. 

Today primeval forests are declining worldwide. Poles are melting, sea levels are rising. Global warming caused by man-made greenhouse gas emissions is a reality. On the other hand, burnout and depression continue to spread. Sustainable thinking, action and management are more important than ever. 

As a responsible company, we have been fighting against overexploitation of all kinds for many years: Overexploitation of the environment, natural resources, health, time, family and society. If a system loses its ability to regenerate, it loses its balance. This applies to nature as well as to man.

Sustainability is a matter of the heart for us. And we think it's high time for action! We would be pleased if you were there.
