DR. KARL LAMPRECHT, PRESIDENT AND CEO OF THE ZEISS GROUP

“Sustainability has always been a fundamental principle for ZEISS. A commitment to the common good and to finding solutions for key societal issues are part and parcel of the company’s ethos.”

Sustainability at ZEISS

As a company owned by a foundation, sustainability and business success are inextricably linked at ZEISS. Sustainable value added is an integral component of the company's business activity, which focuses on innovative solutions that contribute to positive development in society and enable long-term, profitable growth.

Climate Protection at ZEISS – Globally Carbon-Neutral by 2025

This goal is part of ZEISS' sustainability strategy and builds on its ongoing improvements regarding environmental performance.

ZEISS aims to operate in a carbon-neutral way in its own activities worldwide by 2025. This supplements the company's existing goal of switching to green power at its sites worldwide by 2022. ZEISS is therefore making a contribution to the global targets set in the Paris Agreement of limiting global warming to below 2°C.

Fields of Action

At ZEISS, generating acceptance for the company's own activities and assuming responsibility for the environment, employees and society is an integral part of the business philosophy. The approach toward sustainability with which ZEISS addresses, implements and integrates the requirements for responsible and sustainable business practices in its day-to-day operations is divided into five key areas of activity: Integrity and Compliance, Products and Value Chain, Employees, Environment and Social Engagement.

INTEGRITY AND COMPLIANCE

The "rules" of good and fair conduct

How do we treat each other and our business partners? Integrity, fairness and legality are the essential elements for all our business activities.

PRODUCTS AND VALUE CHAIN

Tools from 3D Printers

Printed tools are made of artificial resin and have largely replaced machined tools made of aluminum. This saves money and is environmentally friendly to boot.

EMPLOYEES

New Learning for the Digital Workplace

The digital future will require new expertise and skills, which ZEISS is systematically integrating into the training and continuing education of its employees.

ENVIRONMENT

Green Logistics

With this pilot project, ZEISS is testing the suitability of the electric commercial vehicle for corporate logistics. This constitutes yet another step on the road to greater sustainability for ZEISS Logistics.

The battery powered MAN eTGM truck run by Schwarz Logistik GmbH will shuttle between Herbrechtingen and Oberkochen three to four times a day during the test phase in order to deliver the preliminary products needed at any given time by the ZEISS Production departments.
SOCIAL ENGAGEMENT

Aloka Vision Program

ZEISS has teamed up with non-governmental organizations, foundations and small local businesses to deliver basic eye care to remote parts of rural India.
