Sustainability in Figures

The Proof Points of Our Work

We work every day not only to become more efficient from an economic point of view - but also to use water, energy and resources efficiently. For us, sustainable management also includes responsible and respectful interaction within our workforce. The Hansgrohe Group is committed to diversity, inclusion and equal opportunities. We document all of this on a regular basis.

Hansgrohe’s Sustainability Ratings

Neither companies nor individuals become sustainable overnight. Step by step, processes have to be analyzed, reconsidered again and again, and set up anew. The Hansgrohe Group has been following this path for more than four decades.

In order to operate even more sustainably and efficiently, it is important to analyze one's own projects and progress. At Hansgrohe, this is already being done continuously within the company.

However, customers around the world and many other stakeholders expect transparent and comparable benchmarks that only neutral external service providers can deliver. Hansgrohe uses ESG ratings for this purpose.

ESG stands for 'Environmental, Social, Governance'. External classifications help to classify the company's own performance in various categories. The results of sustainability measures thus become more transparent not only for the company but also for customers.

Silver Medal from EcoVadis

As early as mid-2022, the Black Forest-based company received the EcoVadis Silver Medal. This puts the company in the top 25 percent of all companies assessed by EcoVadis in only its second year of participation.

EcoVadis assesses how well a company has integrated sustainability into its management system for the topics  of

  • environment,
  • labor and human rights,
  • ethics and
  • sustainable procurement.

Since its founding in 2007, EcoVadis has grown to become the world’s largest and most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings, creating a global network of more than 100,000+ rated companies.

Of course, we have set ourselves the overarching goal of achieving a gold medal in EcoVadis within the coming years.

B Rating within CDP Climate Change

Hansgrohe achieved a good B rating within Climate Change at the end of 2022 with the CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) disclosure system.

The global business community considers the CDP to be the gold standard of environmental reporting, with the richest and most comprehensive data set on actions taken by companies and cities.

Of course, we have set ourselves the overarching goal of achieving an A rating in CDP Climate Change within the coming years.

EPDs: Ecological Impact Transparency Down to Product Level

The Hansgrohe Group has published EPDs (Environmental Product Declarations) for nine AXOR and hansgrohe product categories. The EPDs provide information about the environmental impact of a product in relation to its entire life cycle: from the extraction of raw materials, through manufacturing and many years of use, to recycling or disposal.

This data provides architects, builders and designers with important information for the sustainability of their construction projects. This is particularly important for building projects that are subject to international certification systems such as BREEAM or LEED.

The EPDs cover around 1,400 of the best-selling chrome products from the standard AXOR and hansgrohe collections and product ranges.

Verified by the Institut für Bauen und Umwelt e. V., Berlin

All EPDs have undergone the verification process of the Institut für Bauen und Umwelt e. V. (IBU), Berlin. They are publicly available on the IBU platform.

Awards: Our Sustainable Actions Evaluated by Independent Jurys

Besides reports, ratings, and certificates we regularly face evaluation by independent jurys of renowned sustainability awards. Being nominated or even being one of the winners, is an honor and incentive at the same time. The jurys, consisting of experts from a wide range of disciplines, apply strict standards for the submissions. For example, they search for companies, which

  • have a high awareness for the problems associated with the climate crisis and
  • develop holisitic, innovative solutions for sustainable management.

The impact that a solution has on the market or within the company plays often a decisive role in the evaluation. All the more we are proud, if we belong to the tight circle of nominees or winners.

In fact, this year (October 2023) the Hansgrohe Group is among

In 2023, we also won the German Innovation Award for our concept study of the bathroom of the future.

The experts' evaluations confirm that we are on the right track. With dedication we will continue our work on even better and more sustainable solutions from and within our company.
