This commitment reflects in particular out target to develop products with our customers, which will lead to continuous savings through their use, e.g. through durability and engine efficiency.

SCHERDEL CLIMATE STRATEGY
We will save up to 40% of our emissions by 2030.
„We have the responsibility to guarantee the employees secure jobs. For the SCHERDELGroup growth and secure jobs are major keys of success. Therefore, our entrepreneurial action is subject to the principles of sustainability. However sustainable development may be achieved only if the corresponding environmental, economic and social aspects are implemented at the same time. This makes it possible to ensure and improve the ecological, economic and social performances of our society.“ (SCHERDEL Sustainability directive) The management adopted a climate strategy at the end of last year as an important foundation for sustainable development. Like the sustainability directive, this applies to the entire SCHERDELGroup. The goal of the climate strategy is to reduce 40% of our emissions by 2030 (base year 2019). In order to achieve this goal, the following approaches are pursued:
We use our resources carefully and implement energy saving rules. The rules are continually being expanded and followed
We are planning further use and expansion of our own generation in the form of PV systems on SCHERDEL ground. The planned PV systems are being pushed forward as part of the planned investments and potential analysis.
We will use green electricity at least at all German locations from 2030.
We want to make a significant contribution to the ecological and sustainable development of our company by working together with our partners on the careful use of resources and strengthening the circular economy. In the first step, we want to achieve transparency from our suppliers for the top purchased products with regard to Scope 3 emissions. This will be incorporated into our supplier evaluation. We are specifically looking for Scope 3 lighthouse projects that make an active contribution to reducing emissions across the entire supply chain.
CODE OF BEHAVIOR FOR SUPPLIERS
Compliance Communication System
Part of our corporate responsibility
A whistleblower system serves our company to detect attempted and completed violations of internal policies and laws at an early stage. Valuable information can be provided not only by employees but also by business partners and third parties. In this regard, we would appreciate it if you could report any identified irregularities and violations of laws to us. The information received through the system is sent directly to our ombudsman, who handles it confidentially in compliance with legal regulations for the protection of whistleblowers and data privacy. You also have the option to submit reports anonymously. Providing your name is voluntary. However, if you choose to make an anonymous report, you will not be informed about any measures that may have been taken.
We ask for your understanding that the whistleblower system is intended only for reporting violations of laws, policies, or our internal sustainability policy. General complaints as well as product and warranty inquiries will not be processed through this system.
Processing of the data you provide:
We use the information you provide in the whistleblower system for purposes such as verifying and documenting reports, internal investigations (including sharing with external lawyers, auditors, or other professional practitioners bound by confidentiality, as well as with affected companies within the SCHERDEL Group), and possibly for disclosure to governmental authorities (such as the police, public prosecutor’s office, or courts). We assure all whistleblowers that their information will be treated confidentially. The legal basis for processing the personal data you provide is the fulfillment of legal obligations (Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. c DS-GVO).
