Preparation for the Future

Climate change, scarcity of natural resources, increasingly short economic cycles, and demographic change impact our markets and demand patterns, presenting new challenges to our business activities. As a customer, supplier, employee, or interested member of the public, you expect specific measures and responses from us. It is you who is paying increasingly more attention to how we deal with new challenges and how sustainably we manage our environment. Therefore, we have defined and structured our sustainability approach in various fields of action: Principles, Employees, Profitability, Environment, Society, and Region.

We are working on deriving objectives for the future in order to become a more sustainable company. As an international company, we view these fields of action in terms of global responsibility for Würth Industry North America and WINWORK® (Würth Industrial NetWORK) companies specializing in the industrial sector.

Sustainably profitable business and growth are of great importance to us. Sustainable business operations go hand in hand with long-term, healthy and reliable business relationships. Sustainable, conscious action by all employees and high standards regarding the careful use of all resources in accordance with a company's economic objectives are no fad or trend, they form the basis of our daily activity and decision-making.

Profitability - Growth without profit is fatal.
