S.E.E.D.S. – The Vaillant Group's sustainability programme

The Vaillant Group has combined all its sustainability activities into one strategic programme. Under the name S.E.E.D.S., binding, quantifiable targets have been set in the following fields of focus: Environment, Employees, Development & Products and Society. We develop specific measures based on these targets and continuously monitor the results.

For an industrial company that develops environmentally friendly, highly efficient heating technologies, addressing the subject of sustainability seems a logical step. In order to ensure that the company will continue to enjoy economic success and benefit the generations to come, we also look at the environmental and social aspects of our business activities. Our customers, in particular, have clear-cut expectations regarding the energy and resource efficiency of our devices. For us, however, sustainability means more than just marketing particularly energy-efficient products. It means that the strategic and operational decisions taken by a company must consider factors related to sustainability. We therefore always have to ask ourselves what direct and indirect effects a business decision or the company’s actions will have on people and the environment.

Sustainability programme

The strategic sustainability programme S.E.E.D.S. is based on the corporate vision of the Vaillant Group, together with its corporate values and a holistic understanding of sustainability. The name S.E.E.D.S. stands for Sustainability in Environment, Employees, Development & Products and Society and thus identifies the four focus fields Environment, Employees, Development & Products and Society. The Vaillant Group concentrates on these fields when implementing its sustainability strategy. All sustainability activities and all related projects link in with the company’s core business. In this regard, the Vaillant Group’s Sustainability Management department makes a contribution to ensuring the company’s success in the long term. The department forms part of Corporate Communications, Sustainability Management & Politics and reports directly to the CEO of the Vaillant Group.

The team sets sustainability targets in close consultation with the Management Board and the company’s individual operational departments and business units, systematically monitors their progress and provides impetus for improving company-wide sustainability performance. In addition, the Group-wide environmental management system, which is compliant with the DIN EN ISO 14001 standard, is also controlled centrally from here.
