People, Planet, and Products are the driving force behind Dematic’s Sustainability Strategy. Just as we recently introduced a new safety pledge to focus our team on safety and well-being through Ready, Safe + Sound, we are driving a similar commitment to ensure the products we produce and the solutions we deliver are sustainability focused, short, mid, and long term.
The commitment to our customers and their sustainable logistics future is a critical component of the Dematic business plan. A Healthy and Sustainable Business Culture is the Core of Our Mission and is essential to providing high-performing products, solutions, and services that are efficient, mitigate climate change, and enhance user safety.
Our Environmental, Health, Safety & Sustainability team, guided by our sustainability steering committee, is passionate about making a positive impact to ensure alignment and accountability from our business and functional action owners across the globe. Here’s our roadmap and a bit of perspective about our path forward and nine action areas.
