Schaeffler’s strategically organized sustainability work is divided into the four fields of action of “Sustainable Management,” "Customers and Products,” “Environment and Energy,” and “Employees and Society.” The fields of action create the structural framework for dealing with the Schaeffler Group’s sustainability topics, which are identified through a regularly conducted materiality analysis.
Corporate management with integrity is the basis for all business activities of the Schaeffler Group. We expect the same from our business partners. Sustainable management includes compliance with standards in our own company in relation to society, human rights and the environment, as well as the implementation of appropriate diligence processes in the supply chain. In addition, effective corporate governance means responsible corporate management focused on adding long-term value.

Schaeffler’s products and solutions stand out for their high quality and safety. Individual customer service and long-term business relationships are always the focus of our corporate activities.
Environment and Energy
