Sustainability is an integral part of MAHLE’s identity. “Harmonising our corporate success with the health and well-being of both people and the environment is one of our most important tasks,” the company says.
As a global company, MAHLE embraces its legal, social and environmental responsibility and espouse these principles. MAHLE is committed to continuously enhancing the efficiency of its products and processes to ensure compliance with internationally recognised labour standards, the respect for human rights, and the sustainable use of resources and energy. MAHLE expects the same of its suppliers.
MAHLE has formulated explicit CO2 reduction targets. The company aims to become a CO2 neutral company by 2040 at the latest and expects its suppliers to support MAHLE in achieving this goal.
“At MAHLE, we evaluate performance in terms of CO2 emissions as well as ecological and social criteria across the entire value chain. This is an integral part of our corporate guidelines which apply both to MAHLE and to our suppliers. Companies are obligated to communicate these requirements to their employees as well as to their own suppliers, and to ensure that they are met,” MAHLE explains.
MAHLE expects its suppliers to fully respect local law as well as international labour standards and human rights. It, therefore, calls on suppliers to follow a proactive approach to ecological responsibility by protecting the environment, conserving natural resources, and reducing the environmental footprint of their production, products and services throughout their life cycle.
Detailed requirements pertaining to environmental, social and compliance issues are listed in MAHLE’s Supplier Code of Conduct, which can be found on our MAHLE website. For partners, adherence to these requirements is mandatory.
MAHLE looks forward to working with suppliers to establish a joint, robust system of sustainable business relations and responsible management of resources and environmental protection.
