How we live and implement sustainability
We have a global climate strategy, but this is just a good start. While curbing climate change is the key lever for sustainable development, we must look beyond climate. This is why we have been working on a holistic sustainability strategy for the whole Viessmann Group. We do so using one of the most robust, science-based tools: the Future-Fit Business Benchmark. Future-Fit Business Benchmark takes the Doughnut Model and the Sustainable Development Goals and breaks them down into concrete indicators for a company. As a result a clear, long term destination towards a social and environmental break-even point is provided. Reaching this break-even point means zero negative impacts and only positive ones on people and planet.
Brand claim "for our climate"
Our brand stands for climate – the topic that has united us at Viessmann for generations. As well as referring to individual room climates, which we optimize together with our partners and end customers, the claim also emphasizes our strategic response to climate change.
Details on other selected aspects of our climate strategy are listed in the following.
Commitments, Certificates and Downloads
While our Viessmann climate strategy “LEAP to Net Zero” accelerates the company’s impacts and positive contributions specifically on climate, our well established and robust management system ensures our precautionary approach, employee’s focus on environmental topics as well as continuous improvement of our environmental performance.
