Publications

Our communication on the issue of sustainability is intended to provide customers, employees, managing partners, suppliers, media representatives and other stakeholders with an insight into the values we hold most dear and into what doing business sustainably means to us. At the same time, these stakeholder groups’ expectations of us influence the Vaillant Group’s strategic focus and our actual sustainability activities. Ever since our first Sustainability Report was published, we have been providing details of our sustainability successes and challenges across the Group each year.

Sustainability in motion

Responsibility at the Vaillant Group. More on our commitment in 244 seconds.

By the way ...

587 employees work on tomorrow’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning technology in 150 research and development projects.

71 tonnes of CO2 are saved every year at the Remscheid site thanks to an alternative technique for testing gas valves. Enough to fly roughly 530 times from Paris to London.

92 research and development projects are underway at the Vaillant Group right now. More than 50 new projects were launched in 2011 alone.

1,400 seminars and training sessions per year provide avenues for employees from all company departments to develop their potential.

80 per cent of our overall procurement is being sourced from suppliers that have recognised the social and ecological principles contained in the UN Global Compact.

96 % of the waste generated across the Vaillant Group is recycled. And our appliances boast high recycling rates, too. A wall-hung Vaillant device is 99.8 % recyclable.

No landfill at all is generated at the Vaillant Group Belper plant each year. In 2006 that figure was 357,000 kg – equivalent to the weight of 250 medium-sized limousines.

Only 12 % of the 17.8 million heating systems in Germany are running efficiently. If replaced with modern technology, 40 % energy and CO2 emissions could be saved.

75 % is the proportion of management staff we want to recruit from within our own ranks. That’s why we run comprehensive programmes that suit the needs of our employees.

ecoPOWER 1.0 is Germany’s most sustainable product 2011. Vaillant’s micro-cogeneration system convinced the renowned expert jury of the German Sustainability Award.

85 young people were invited by the Council for Sustainable Development to develop a model for a sustainable future. Vaillant Innovation Engineer Lars Heinen was among them.

3,000 euros in heating costs are saved at Moorriem primary school every year. Thanks to the ecoPOWER mini-CHP they won in a Germany-wide competition.

350,000 euros is the amount raised by chimney sweeps on their cycling ride through Germany for children suffering from cancer. Vaillant's been supporting the tour for many years.
