The concept of sustainability is one of the basic principles that guide all decisions and actions at voestalpine. The fundamentals of this approach are set forth in voestalpine’s Corporate Responsibility Strategy (CR Strategy). It is an integral part of the Group’s corporate strategy and follows directly from voestalpine’s functional strategies.
In addition to the functional strategies, a number of key internal and external factors had to be considered in the CR Strategy, for example, employee and customer concerns, environmental issues, products and innovations as well as the demands of maintaining a transparent supply chain.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were considered in the development of the CR Strategy presented in the following sections.
The appropriate symbols at the end of each section indicate to which of the 17 SDGs voestalpine makes a contribution via the CR Strategy’s individual fields of action.
