Sustainability at SLV

At SLV, we are aiming for balance between economy, environment and society. With an equilibrium between these three areas, we consicer something as sustainable. The longterm success of our core business can only be guaranteed, if the company is taking care of the environment and society in which it is located and on which all its business activities do have an influence. Our goal is to meet all the different stakeholder interests, not only in Germany, but of the entire world. This can only be realized with responsible guidance of our company, a steady improvement of our efficient energy management in terms of product portfolio, as well as securing the safety at work (for anyone and everyone).


Being in charge of corporate governance

To incorporate sustainabilty authentically into the corporate culture, the sustainable actions and measures are implemented into every level of the company. Not only have we agreed to meet the respective laws, but also make sure that their characteristics and measures are written into the company's DNS. Our corporate governance is discussing every detail of theses measures in order to find the right way, supporting all sustainable actions and reducing potentials risks. The base of their personal actions has a role model function and is summarized within the Code of Conduct, in which we all committed to the general guidelines. To the Code of Conduct >

Social responsibility

Being in charge of our employees

SLV is aware of ist social responsibilty as an employer for many employees. Our intrinsic motivation is to create an attractive professional environment, in which talents are encouraged to grow everyday. It is our obligation to enable them to achieve their best possible perfomance by giving them the right conditions to work in. Fair salaries, safe working spaces, various career opportunities and training opportunities are just a few of the benefits that are to be listed. That is our way of making sure that the professional staff we need can work their way from bottom to top within our company. Ensuring that they are motivated by the various different tasks and great impact they are contributing to SLV's success. Joining the UN Global Compact treaty was therefore a logic consequence to ensure that this philosophy is transferred into the international business.
