Acting in accordance with the law and ethical principles


As a globally operating company, we bear responsibility in all ESG areas of environmental, social and governance. We attach great importance to the long-term sustainable results of our actions. This is why effective governance supports our three areas of action. As part of our Group-wide risk management, we systematically identify potential risks at an early stage. In addition to respecting fundamental ethical values, compliance as a component of governance forms the basis of our economic success. We comply with our due diligence obligations along the supply chain, towards society, employees and the environment.

Sustainable corporate governance

Our sustainable corporate governance aims to ensure the long-term future viability and sustainable management of the organization. Starting at the shareholder level, the governance structure extends from the Advisory Board and the Group Management Board to the individual Leadership Teams. Ecological, economic and social sustainability issues are managed by the Eberspächer Sustainability Committee. This committee reports regularly to the Group Management Board.
