With success come responsibilities
After many years of hard work on the S.E.E.D.S. sustainability programme, Vaillant has finally done it: the company was named Germany’s most sustainable large company. Vaillant was absolutely delighted – and motivated to keep making the family-run company even greener. What progress has been made so far?
Now more than ever
The team battled away. Talked things through. Was persuasive. And won. The culmination of the first five years of S.E.E.D.S., the Vaillant Group’s strategic sustainability programme, was when Vaillant CEO Dr Carsten Voigtländer was presented with the coveted trophy. Vaillant is now officially Germany’s most sustainable large company for 2015. Sustainability is not something that just happens by itself, and the Vaillant Group sustainability team are always well aware of this. But they haven’t let it put them off. On the contrary: it has always been the difficulties that really awakened their fighting spirit. “Our success has proven that we have the right approach,” says Dr Jens Wichtermann. As Group Director of Sustainability Management, he has helped to make sustainability a cross-cutting issue for the Vaillant Group. “An award like this comes with responsibilities.” And that is why the hard work is far from over. “Now, more than ever, we want to show just how much we deserve it.”
