“We are very proud to have received the certificate”, Jörg Niermann, Head of Marketing at NORD DRIVESYSTEMS, explains. “This clearly shows that our sustainability strategy is paying off.” The company received 65 out of 100 points and thus landed on the 89th percentile rank, which is significantly above the average of companies in this industry. The drive technology manufacturer is in the range of the top one percent of companies assessed in the environment category and in the top eleven percent of the sustainable procurement category.
Economic efficiency and sustainability in harmony
NORD DRIVESYSTEMS aims to reconcile economic efficiency and sustainability – both globally and locally on site. In addition to innovations and energy efficiency, the company also takes social responsibility towards its globally active employees, customers, suppliers and partners with its CSR measures. “Our Company Policy is the foundation of our activities”, Niermann says. “We act with integrity and responsibility for the environment.” The company’s sustainability strategy not only includes a considerate and resource-saving approach to nature but also the development and manufacture of energy-efficient drive systems and solutions for environmentally relevant industries, such as wind energy and waste water treatment plants, recycling and biogas plants or large transport systems where the use of the NORD products helps to significantly save energy.
