Environment

Environmental responsibility as a benchmark

Compliance with all the applicable environmental protection criteria and the avoidance of environmental risks are top priorities within Vossloh’s environmental management. Both in terms of production and the provision of services, Vossloh acts in accordance with international standards and guidelines, in particular ISO 14001 and ISO 50001. Applying these standards helps to minimize potential risks for the environment. There are no material risks that are not recorded by the Company’s risk management system. Environmental officers have been appointed at the various levels and a corresponding report system has been put in place. In its materiality analysis, Vossloh identified climate-related carbon emissions and noise emissions as the most significant nonfinancial performance indicators in the area of the environment. In this respect, Vossloh has been pursuing the general objective of continuously reducing its emissions for years. Defining concrete targets for specific time frames is one of the responsibilities of the sustainability working group newly created at the end of November 2017.
