Sustainability Management

Our corporate responsibility for sustainable development is an integral part of our strategy. Organizationally, the interdisciplinary topic of sustainability is directly anchored with senior management via the Chief Sustainability Officer.

Along with our brand and strategy, corporate culture is an integral part of the OSRAM identity. The "Innovative – Respectful – Entrepreneurial" corporate values define our understanding of how we should interact with each other and with others. They are reflected in our daily behavior and in facts and figures that define OSRAM as a business. For us, being innovative means contributing to social responsibility by making our products more energy-efficient. This is also in line with the "Respectful" value which stands for our careful use of resources and which governs our dealings with colleagues, customers, suppliers, investors, and the public. We promote the ability to think as entrepreneurs among all our employees and managers. which motivates us to always give our best to create added value for all stakeholders.

Economy, environment and society

We align our business activities with the three-column model of sustainability and therefore aim to fully integrate sustainable values. This is the only way to achieve sustainable development on an economic, social and environmental level.
