Sustainability at SLV

At SLV, sustainability is recognised as a balanced interplay between the three areas of economy, environment and society. Only by considering each process of our core business can we ensure the long-term success of the company without negatively impacting our society or the environment. Our international business activity requires us to uphold these claims for a wide variety of stakeholder groups, not only in Germany but also worldwide. Through responsible company management, ongoing improvement of our energy-efficient product portfolio and ensuring the occupational health and safety of our employees and business partners, we help to minimise the negative effects of our activity and develop in a positive way.

Sustainability Journey

Sustainability is determined by important links in the value chain

The focus of all our efforts involves promoting a sustainable value chain. This goes beyond simply optimising the supply chain, even though this represents a central link in the value chain. Our main focus is on people, communication, innovation and information security.

Responsible growth

All of our endeavours are based on our four key values as we are convinced that this is the only way to grow responsibly. We think and act like entrepreneurs, yet we constantly strive to offer quality lighting and first-class service to our customers. Our growth is always sustainable because we understand our responsibility towards people, society and the environment in particular. Our actions are characterised by a respectful approach that flows not least into the entire value chain:

Project highlights

Our sustainability objective involves maintaining a sustainable value chain through a balanced interplay of economic, social and ecological aspects across all of our core business processes.

Products with recycled secondary resources

"Even our product development process is shaped by responsible handling of resources and ecological innovations across all core processes. In order to create better products for the environment and our planet, we replace primary resources with secondary resources, taking a key step towards a sustainable product range.

However, our product responsibility goes even further. Guaranteeing the safety of our products for customer use is a top priority for us. By carefully selecting our suppliers and through multi-stage test processes, we ensure that our customers receive top-quality products that are safe to use. We also provide various supplementary information with regards to photometric, technical, regulatory and safety-related product characteristics in our download area. Our additional five-year guarantee for large parts of the current SLV product portfolio reflects our promise of quality and sustainability when it comes to our products."

Our road to greater sustainability

The EcoVadis rating of SLV GmbH in 2017 formed the basis of our new sustainability strategy. It showed us where we stand as a company and how we consider various aspects of sustainability. It also illustrated the diversity and complexity of this topic along with the need for an independent and interdisciplinary approach. This is now handled by a responsible unit at a group level within SLV which reports directly to management.
