2020 was an exceptional year. However, there is no exception when it comes to sustainability. A look at Leadec’s 2020 Sustainability Report and an outlook to 2025.
If you want to describe the year 2020, you might think of the sapphire blue sky last summer, without a single contrail. Of the clean canals in Venice. Of the improved air quality in some urban centers. This happened incidentally, brought about by a global shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic. The key figures in sustainability reports will reflect this. After all, business trips not taken and production downtime are noticeable. But sustainability is characterized by not registering short-term successes. And reports will document over the next few years whether and what visible lessons have been learned from the pandemic. Be it in terms of emissions, employee protection or cooperation with customers.
Responsibility on site
Leadec has defined four pillars of responsible action: managing our environmental impact, taking care of our employees and society, maintaining integrity, and adding long-term customer value. As a service expert, we do not operate our own production facilities, but our experts are on the road every day at our more than 300 locations around the world. It is therefore all the more important that they all consider and reinforce the principle of sustainability in their daily work. To this end, we at Leadec rely on anchoring the messages and aspirations decentrally in the divisions. We achieve this through a global network in which a dedicated sustainability team operates and exchanges information with around 2,000 health & safety managers. Leadec’s Board of Management bears ultimate responsibility for sustainability.
