Sustainability at Plansee

Sustainability at Plansee

Sustainability has played an essential role at Plansee since 1921. The Plansee lake is not only our namesake but also our energy source and is more important today than ever. Whether it relates to hydroelectric power, sustainable company management, recycling of materials, or global compliance with labor laws, sustainability has always had multiple dimensions at Plansee and is a core element of our corporate strategy, contributing to our commercial success. 

We want to be even more sustainable in future and to use our innovative power to help our customers achieve their sustainability goals. We take a holistic view of sustainability on the basis of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria.

Initiatives to increase sustainability

In April 2024, Plansee was awarded the gold medal by EcoVadis, putting Plansee in the top 5% of the best-rated companies worldwide. With a score of 78/100, Plansee is in the 98th percentile. EcoVadis awards ratings in the area of corporate social responsibility (CSR) based on a wide range of non-financial information, including environmental impact, labor and human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement. The evidence-based assessments are converted into easy-to-read score cards with scores and medals, and also highlight strengths and areas for improvement.
