"Our goal is to create future individual mobility in such a way that we meet both economic requirements and our ecological and social responsibility."
Fritz Dräxlmaier, chairman of the board
In mid-2020, the management decided to revise the sustainability strategy. This is based on a materiality analysis in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). The aim is to know the opinions and needs of our stakeholders and to take these into account in our actions. All topics that were identified as material in this process are reflected in the following strategy.
The Code of Conduct is based on our vision and our corporate values. This provides an insight into the corporate culture of the DRÄXLMAIER Group and is binding for all managers and employees. It contains the essential aspects of our policies and pretend the desired conduct of employees and external interest groups, e.g. suppliers, customers, applicants and important NGOs (non-governmental organizations). Further information can be found in the respective policies.
Since 2010, the DRÄXLMAIER Group has been participating in Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) reporting. The non-profit organization pursues the goal of publicly communicating the climate data of companies, thereby contributing to transparency. DRÄXLMAIER is supported and audited by an independent external bureau, both in calculating the corporate carbon footprint (CCF) and in generating the reports.
Divided responsibility: Through the end of 2018 business year, Fritz Dräxlmaier administered both the interests of the shareholders and the leadership of the executive board in his function as chairman and chief executive officer (CEO). On Jan. 1, 2019, these two areas of responsibility were divided and reassigned. Fritz Dräxlmaier will concentrate on the chairman function and represent the interests of the shareholders. The position of the CEO was assumed by Franz Haslinger and Dr. Martin Gall - two long-standing executives of the company.
Since 2015, the DRÄXLMAIER Group has compiled a sustainability report on its economic, ecological and social activities and services. The report is issued based on the new GRI standards from the Global Reporting Initiative, with the option, "Core."
