Corporate Social Responsibility at Sortimo
Social responsibility: We promote the regional economy by producing from a single site and remaining loyal to our regional suppliers.
Corporate governance: The target is ambitious – we are on course for climate-neutral, CO2-neutral production at our Zusmarshausen site in order to develop a CO2-neutral range of products and services. This target will be achieved on the basis of four pillars: low-carbon product design, energy efficiency, renewable electricity and carbon reduction. It goes without saying that, for many years now, we have strictly adhered to all Code of Conduct-related issues in our selection of suppliers and subcontractors, as well as the guidelines on sustainable procurement with regard to labour and human rights plus anti-corruption.
Sustainability: Sortimo exclusively produces in Zusmarshausen, which enables the entire value chain to be mapped in a resource-optimised manner. We avoid long supply and production chains and use sustainable materials to keep CO2 emissions to a minimum. Sortimo's buildings have been adapted to the natural environment and fitted with photovoltaic systems, so that some of the company's production is already supplied by solar energy. The Sortimo Innovation Park in Zusmarshausen represents the first success on the way to CO2-neutral production. This is because the charging park provides for sector coupling to a common energy management system, and enables "Sortimo blue electricity" to be produced and stored in the long term.
Social responsibility: Safety is an essential aspect that has a major impact on our product development. Our product range enables us to significantly protect human life. Sortimo van racking systems are designed to the most exacting safety levels: Crash tests under real conditions: in short, Sortimo products guarantee maximum protection even with a full load. We also attach great importance to ergonomics in our product design for the sustainable health of our customers and the prevention of accidents at work.
Corporate governance: Sortimo products and services help our customers to achieve greater organisation, and also a digital view of orders, traceable at any time. They also have a complete package of solutions for their mobile day-to-day working life, from organisational aids, digital inventories and marketing instruments, and ultimately to improved productivity and profitability.
Sustainability: Sortimo products and services automatically help to reduce unnecessary materials in the load space and provide an ideal overview of all working equipment. This saves weight and back-and-forth travel, enabling our customers to reduce their carbon footprint without further effort. Sortimo is also an expert consultant for electric mobility in the service and trade sector, and is actively driving forward change with its expertise.

> Quality for maximum durability
