Responsible Management

As a family owned business, we think and act independently, with a focus on sustainability and ethical aspects. And we do so out of deepest conviction. Our strategies are not aimed at short term success. But always at the permanent well being of the company and our colleagues.

Ecology and social responsibility have always been tremendously important at Hettich. This is reflected in a broad commitment to society. And through high levels of investment in technologies that ease strain on the environment and conserve resources. Because we are convinced that acting in a socially responsible and ecological manner in conformity with the law doesn't hamper a company's economic success but, in the long term, helps to promote and secure it.

Sustainable economic activity – our basis

As a family owned business in its fourth generation sustainabilty is an essential part of our corporate culture. Our aim is to combine business success with ecological, social and civic responsibility.

Hettich Code of Conduct
