"In the combined assessment, we rank among the top four percent of the manufacturer group assessed by EcoVadis," explains Jorg Niermann, Head of Marketing at NORD. "This positive development is also a result of our sustainability strategy."

In the Environment category, Getriebebau NORD from Bargteheide reached the top one percent; in the Sustainable procurement division, it ranked among the best 11 percent of the assessed companies.

Expansion of the sustainability activities

"Our aim is to harmonise economic efficiency and sustainability," says Niermann. "Based on our Company Policy, we act with integrity and responsibility for the environment - locally and globally."

Since 2021, NORD has been reporting its sustainability activities according to the German Sustainability Code (DNK). NORD is currently establishing a sustainability network within the ten largest subsidiaries. From 2025, there will be an international sustainability report, which will contain the key figures of all subsidiaries. In the fields of quality and environment, the company works according to certified ISO management standards. The company furthermore signed the UN Global Compact and follows the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.
