Press releases | 11/27/2023 Freshly awarded: Liebherr-Hausgeräte receives the 2023 EcoVadis gold medal

Liebherr-Hausgeräte GmbH has been awarded another EcoVadis gold medal for its responsible practices. Compared to the previous year’s result, the company was able to further increase its overall rating. With a total score of 75 points, the manufacturer's production sites are among the top three percent of all companies rated by EcoVadis worldwide.

For Steffen Nagel, Managing Director Sales & Marketing at Liebherr-Hausgeräte GmbH, this award is both recognition and an incentive: “We are very pleased to confirm that we are making successful progress on our path towards greater sustainability. Our goal is to minimise the environmental impact of our high-quality and long-lasting products throughout their entire life cycle, while simultaneously integrating social and economic aspects. In the future, we would like to continue to improve step by step – because this is the only way to ensure our long-term success.”

Continuous progress pays off – both in the long and short term

Liebherr-Hausgeräte GmbH is aware of its responsibility towards people and the environment and promotes corporate responsibility at its production sites. The spectrum ranges from energy-efficient appliance production to conscientious water management and compliance with labour and human rights along the entire supply chain. This focus on a holistic corporate strategy along the entire product lifecycle has now been rewarded with the EcoVadis gold medal for a second time: the renewed title clearly demonstrates that Liebherr is facing up to the ecological, social and ethical challenges and is continuously developing.

Liebherr-Hausgeräte has been using EcoVadis’ evaluation process for several years in order to make its progress in terms of corporate responsibility and sustainability transparent, and it has seen gratifying results: the Austrian Liebherr plant, Liebherr-Hausgeräte Lienz GmbH, has already been awarded the EcoVadis silver certificate twice. Last year (2022), the company celebrated a significant improvement and was awarded the EcoVadis gold medal for all production sites worldwide.

With its EcoVadis gold medal renewed for 2023, Liebherr-Hausgeräte GmbH was able to showcase this strong result and improve the overall rating once again.
