Responsibility in the Schmidbauer Group

For over 90 years, Schmidbauer has been known worldwide as an outstanding partner when it comes to handling heavy loads. Decades of experience combining the use of state-of-the-art technology with indepth human expertise give us the strength to Empowering Solutions. We attach great importance to social and ecological responsibility, which we promote with our stakeholders as well as along the entire value chain. We understand sustainability as a holistic principle that encompasses secure jobs and a healthy coexistence in equal measures. As a family business, it is naturally our key concern to hand over the company and the planet to the next generation in the best possible condition. 

Schmidbauer believes it has a duty of care and is setting out on the path to a better long-term future for everyone. We are facing up to change with openness and courage. Valued processes and familiar interests are being questioned, improved and in some cases redefined. We welcome the overarching transfer of knowledge at an international level and pursue a more sustainable path with reliable stakeholders whose goals complement ours. The innovative strength developed together enables us to recognize and exploit the current opportunities in today's challenges. In this way we act as an efficient company for the future: constantly different, tangibly more.

Transparent and concrete: the basis for reliable change

Our actions are subject to legal regulations, as well as to the ethical standards to which we have committed ourselves within the company. Our efforts are guided by the United Nations' 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and respect for all internationally recognized human rights. For us, implementing this responsibility toward people, society and the environment is an active process in which we aim at continuous improvement in all areas of our business.

For Schmidbauer, the main areas of transformation in the area of sustainability are:
