06/30/2021 Sustainability Award: EcoVadis Medal for Liebherr-Hausgeräte Lienz
For the second time Liebherr-Hausgeräte Lienz GmbH has been awarded the silver medal from EcoVadis, thereby firming up its position as a sustainable brand. With this award, EcoVadis is recognising the commitment of Liebherr in the fields of the environment, ethics, labour and human rights as well as sustainable procurement.
Sustainable enterprise and ethical trading has always been a top priority for Liebherr. Now EcoVadis – the worldwide leading provider of sustainability ratings – has put this to the test again. The result: Liebherr-Hausgeräte Lienz GmbH has been awarded the EcoVadis silver certificate for the second time. The company improved on its overall result from last year in this new assessment. This places the cooling appliance manufacturer – in particular with its portfolio of professional refrigeration and freezing appliances – in the top six percent with regard to sustainability and in the top five percent in the field of the environment. The EcoVadis award is particularly important for customers from the commercial sector.
“Only companies that take a consistent approach to assuming responsibility for society and the environment can enjoy lasting success – and that’s a good thing,” explains Steffen Nagel, Director of Sales & Marketing of Liebherr-Hausgeräte GmbH. He is delighted that EcoVadis have again chosen to present the company with this award because it is a deserved accolade for the performance of the team. “This award recognises the joint effort of people from the most different Liebherr divisions who are constantly working to make our brand even more sustainable.”
