Responsibility

Sustainability & Social responsibility

Sustainability means dealing responsibly with resources, plants and animals in order to provide future generations with a future worth living. 

If you look for synonyms for the term "sustainable", you will find words like long-term, profound, strong, emphatic, enduring, future-proof. All words that fit us very well as a family business. Because FAHRION stands for tradition, long-term planning, innovation and above all for responsibility towards employees, customers and the environment - and has done so for over 100 years. For us as a family business, it is therefore a matter of course that we actively support others and handle our resources responsibly. 

We will keep you updated here in the coming weeks and months with the goals we have set for ourselves. 

We are a partner of the Blue Competence sustainability initiative

Blue Competence is an initiative of the VDMA to promote sustainability in mechanical and plant engineering, but also to make sustainable solutions known to the industry. With our partnership, we are committed to adhering to the 12 Sustainability Guidelines of Mechanical and Plant Engineering Industry.

Our understanding of forward-looking sustainability is based on the principles of economic success, fairness, respect & responsibility and encompasses the dimensions of society, ecology & economy. We understand sustainable action holistically in terms of the definition of the Brundtland Report¹ and the definition of the Council for Sutainable Development² in Germany.

Cultural

¹ Brundtland Report, 1987: "Sustainable development meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."
² German Council for Sustainable Development, 2001: "Sustainable development means taking environmental considerations into account on an equal footing with social and economic considerations. So doing business in a sustainable way means leaving an intact ecological and economic fabric for our children and grandchildren."

FAHRION – a role model for diversity

At FAHRION we value every individuality of our colleagues and thus stand for personal and cultural diversity in the company. Regardless of age, culture and origin, gender, religion and world view, mental or physical limitations or sexual orientation - we at FAHRION live equal opportunities. By bringing together different perspectives, we can achieve the best results together and realise our full potential.

FAHRION takes responsibility

At FAHRION, values such as "social responsibility" and "team spirit" have always been deeply rooted. Nevertheless, we decided in 2016 to expand our commitment even further. The donation budget was increased significantly and we also decided not to distribute any Christmas gifts or promotional gifts among our business partners in the future.

Since then, the total budget has been used to support the following projects, associations and initiatives:
