Sustainability at Weidmüller

We work in a sustainable way, in order to pass on the company and the environment to the next generation, in a successful and healthy condition. Integrated and value-oriented sustainability management is firmly rooted in our company.

We are taking up our responsibility for the future generations. The promotion of learning, conservative use of resources and the strengthening of a culture of innovation are not examples of a corporate reorientation for us. They have been part of our corporate culture for generations. We are taking up our responsibility by caring for our staff and by adhering to behavioural rules dictated by society, even going beyond the requirements laid down by statute and legislation.

Economics at Weidmüller

We exploit earnings potential so as to guarantee the stability and independence of both our company and the brand. To this end, we rely on striking the perfect balance between our corporate values - namely Customers, Innovation, Employees and Product and Process Quality. Indeed, we have done so for decades and will continue to do so in the future.
