Sustainability We Elevate... Our World

"We at Schindler aim to seize the climate crisis challenge, and do our part for our planet, society, and our business." Silvio Napoli, Chairman of the Board of Directors.

Sustainability is central to the way we do business: it governs the way we work and deliver value. Building on foundations laid over five generations, we're dedicated to healthy growth that benefits our shareholders as much as our customers, our employees, and the communities in which we're active.  

Sustainability means different things for us. 

Climate action is a priority: we're working on reducing our carbon footprint in our operations, but we also help our customers become more sustainable, through energy-efficient products and innovative solutions.

Our sustainability efforts extend beyond our own operations to our supply chain: we engage with a group of strategic suppliers to improve their sustainability performance.

Sustainability also means maintaining an environment that ensures health and safety to all, but also one where everyone feels can bring their whole selves to work – the very definition of an inclusive and diverse workplace.

We make a positive impact on communities throughout the world by supporting education, out of the conviction that education leads to social and economic progress.

We continue to embed sustainability in our business. We've set a sustainability roadmap for 2022, which outlines a clear course of action, built around six strategic priorities for maximum impact. More details can be found in our Corporate Responsibility Report.

Our six priorities

  1. Enhance safety
  2. Attract diverse talents
  3. Create value in communities
  4. Pioneer smart urban mobility
  5. Lower vehicle fleet emissions
  6. Increase sustainability in the supply chain

Supporting the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

We support the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, as well as the Paris Climate Agreement. We've identified six United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs) where we can have the most impact – but we contribute to more.
