The Dr. Schneider World- People and Environment

Corporate Social Responsibility

We take on responsibility.

The social responsibility for the people who make the Dr. Schneider Unternehmensgruppe what it is, the social responsibility for the region where we live and do business and the responsibility for our environment has always been at the core of our corporate philosophy.  

It is our goal to make a contribution to keeping an ecological and economic balance in the long run – as the prerequisite for sensible economic growth and a future worth living in. We achieve this through doing business responsibly in all areas of our company – in harmony with people, the environment and society.   

Sustainable economic activities, labor and environmental protection and health care as well as information safety, investments in the development of sustainable products or our Green IT program are only a few examples of how we live responsibly. And our personnel policy is in particular characterized by taking the long view. Job security and developing our employees individually is of huge importance to us, and so is promoting talents. As one of the largest training companies in the region, we offer young people a number of opportunities that, with an 80% hiring rate after finishing the training program, hold the promise of a secure future.

Environment and sustainability

Ecology and economics in harmony.

Using natural resources responsibly is one of our basic tenets and guidelines of the Dr. Schneider Unternehmensgruppe. Responsibility for our environment is at the core of our corporate philosophy and we have the relevant certificates to prove it.

We know that our resources are finite – and this is why we use them economically and with care. In doing this, we are careful with every site where we live and do business. But we do so much more than that! Because we know: With being a global player like us also comes global responsibility! This is why we use water, energy and raw materials sustainably at all Dr. Schneider plants. Apart from that, one of our ecological goals is the shrinking our CO2 footprint and reduction of waste. Our compliance with regulatory requirements goes without saying – but we do not stop there: Our Production Control Center, that monitors the utilities of our global plants around the clock, is exemplary for the entire business. You can add to this a continuous energy reporting on all machines, lean production, the most modern filter systems, our own thermal power station at the Neuses site and innovative climate control engineering.

Energy policy

Responsible use of resources.

As a company aware of its responsibility, we are continually increasing our energy and resource efficiency. From product development to spare parts delivery – all our development and production steps are included in our ecological weakness analysis. Beyond that, we also sensitize our employees for energy efficiency issues, because any success in the area of environmental protection and energy requires that all employees are dedicated and act competently and responsibly. 

Environmental and Energy Policy

Work safety and health protection

Health is our highest good.

Our employees enjoy a safe and healthy work environment that surpasses any legal requirements by far and is state-of-the-art, since it is a crucial success factor for the performance and the economic success of our company. 

Together with our employees we are committed to top quality and pursue viable trends for the future. For this very reason, a work safety and health protection that benefits each and every one is of utmost importance to us. This is the only way to live up to our vision: working safely and in good health without accidents.  


The demanding goals cemented in our environmental and energy policy and all the efforts we invest into reaching them are confirmed regularly by the certificates and awards we earn. The certification of all our sites world-wide in accordance with the international environmental management standard ISO 14001, the ISO 50001 energy management standard certification of our German plants and the introduction of our work safety management system as required by ISO 45001 are already important building blocks of a comprehensive sustainability management system.
