Working together for climate protection: SICK joins climate alliance

SICK is among the first to sign Baden-Württemberg’s Climate Protection Agreement and was acclaimed for its commitment to climate protection during the 9th Resource Efficiency Congress // SICK ist Erstunterzeichner der Klimaschutzvereinbarung Baden-Württemberg und wurde im Rahmen des 9. Ressourceneffizienzkongresses für sein Klimaengagement gewürdigt

Last Wednesday at the 9th Resource Efficiency Congress, SICK was honored as one of the first signatories of the Baden-Württemberg Climate Protection Agreement and thus for its commitment to the climate. SICK is one of the 17 pioneering companies of the new BW Climate Alliance, which with their signature declare their willingness to work together and sustainably for a positive climate change. Among other things, SICK thus commits itself to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions even further and to making energy consumption more efficient.

Neither humanity nor its economic activities can exist without an intact environment. For SICK, sustainability means taking concrete measures for climate and environmental protection, and taking our corporate responsibility for the following generations seriously. We welcome this initiative by the Ministry of the Environment and hope that more companies in Baden-Württemberg will join the alliance, said Dr. Tosja Zywietz at the official presentation of a certificate by Environment Minister Franz Untersteller.

You will find further details on the climate protection agreement between SICK and the State of Baden-Württemberg in the official press release.

Sustainability at SICK

The Network Meeting (article in German) in July 2020 marked the start of the new sustainability strategy at SICK, which was adopted by the entire Executive Board in autumn 2019. The focus of the new strategy is to integrate ecology into all key processes and business areas that have an influence on sustainability. Fourteen fields of action have been identified, and committed working groups have already been formed to drive the new strategy forward within the company and uncover further sustainability potential. The second network meeting is expected to take place in October. A workspace with detailed information on the individual fields of action and status updates will be available to interested employees on mosaic+ from mid October.

The topic of sustainability also has a firm place at SICK Beyond Borders and is integrated into the long-term development of the strategy. Here you can learn more about the Driving Initiative "Sustainability Network".
