Responsible Use of Resources
An environment worth living in for us & future generations

Globally, we are facing a major challenge that will only grow in intensity: the climate crisis & the sustainable use of resources. As an international company, we are aware of our responsibility & want to play our part in ensuring that future generations can also live in a healthy environment. Sustainable action & social commitment have been part of our corporate philosophy for many years. In addition, we have firmly established the responsible use of resources in our corporate goals for the future.

"Resource conservation & social commitment are part of our corporate philosophy. Every one of us has a responsibility towards our climate. We are committed to health & wellness & it is therefore also of particular importance to me to play a part in ensuring a liveable planet for our children & future generations."

Managing Director & CEO

Step by step towards becoming a more sustainable company

For us, sustainability means dealing with the negative impact of our actions. We will find ways to avoid, minimise or, if this is not possible, offset the impact. Moving towards being a more sustainable company is a challenge that we will tackle step by step. In 2022, we focussed on taking stock, meaning we analysed how many emissions we generate in concrete terms & how we deal with resources. As part of this process, we looked at our entire value chain.

For us, operating sustainably means using our power, knowledge and expertise to develop solutions to social and environmental challenges. The interdisciplinary sustainability management team therefore works intensively with all divisions of the company as well as with outside experts. In addition to our Managing Director and CEO, the managers of all relevant Beurer business units – from Purchasing, Production, Regulatory, Technology & Development and Product Management to Service, Marketing and Sales – are all responsible. However, the project ultimately stands on the shoulders of all the employees. We are committed to the 1.5-degree target from the Paris Climate Agreement and are playing our part under the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi). We have defined specific measures and fields of action and incorporated them into our corporate guidelines. We are guided by a number of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) stipulated by the United Nations (UN).
