Sustainability

Economy, society and ecology

A company needs to operate sustainably if it is to survive over the long term and remain independent. Hence at GETRAG, sustainability comprises three aspects of equal importance: economy, society and ecology.

Only with satisfied and committed employees can we apply the innovative power required for lasting and socially acceptable growth in the automotive industry.

A systematic sustainability management system provides the framework for this.

Innovative drive technologies and the use of resources

We are proud to fulfil our responsibility to leave the world intact for future generations through a sustainable Policy. All GETRAG employees worldwide are committed to this goal every day.

We strive to develop innovative drive technology that uses resources sparingly throughout its entire life cycle. This means reducing noise and pollutant emissions and concentrating on recyclable materials.

All GETRAG sites are certified according to ISO 14001 (environmental protection). Irapuato, Untergruppenbach and St. Georgen are certified according to IQNet SR10 (Social Responsibility) since May 2015. The majority of the European sites are also validated according to the EMAS Regulation (environmental protection) and certified according to BS OHSAS 18001 (occupational safety).

We are proud to fulfil our responsibility to leave the world intact for future generations through a sustainable Policy.
