It takes more than just good intentions to establish a sustainable company. We check our strategies and our actions for success. Different KPIs help us here.
All our actions are based on the question: Is this sustainable? We developed a KPI system so that we can answer this question. We use this KPI system to measure the success of our sustainability management. KPIs help management to compare results across the Group and continuously improve them, for example. We differentiate between internal KPIs, our KPI-based management tool, and external KPIs that we publish and use for comparative measurements.
The Viessmann Group’s sustainability management system is headed by the Sustainability Steering Committee, which is overseen by Co-CEO Joachim Janssen. The committee meets every quarter to coordinate our company’s sustainability activities. The most important KPIs include modernization-related carbon savings, our diversity, our employer attractiveness, our training rate, the number of suggestions for improvement per employee, the amount of waste we generate, the amount donated by the Viessmann foundations, and our turnover.
