Our employees and partners are key to our long-term success as a business. Their rights, health and safety are of high priority for us. Nonetheless, ams OSRAM sees itself also as being part of society, which means that our responsibility extends beyond the confines of the Company.
Human Rights and Fair Working Conditions
As a globally active company, the question of compliance with human rights plays a central role in our cooperation with business partners and suppliers as well as in the working conditions of our employees. We fully support the UN Human Rights Charter and actively accept our responsibility by continuously integrating the universality of human rights into our policies, systems and processes.
Health & Safety
OSRAM is committed to offering its employees a safe and healthy working environment. Minimizing the risk of occupational illnesses and accidents at work forms part of this.
The structure of the guideline is in line with the following internationally recognized management system standard:
We created the necessary organization for this industry standards and a comprehensive system for health and safety management.
Wherever OSRAM is active, we want to assume responsibility for the world outside our business. We want to make a positive impact, and to be seen in a positive light. We therefore engage at local level across the globe in initiatives that foster sustainable development and a prosperous society.
Engaging with Partners & Stakeholder Dialogue
As a member of the UN Global Compact and the Responsible Business Alliance, we recognize their principles for sustainable business practices. We want to improve the sustainability of our activities by engaging in dialog with our stakeholders. We use the feedback obtained in the process of communication to continuously improve our strategy and measures. In doing so, we also help to spread the word about sustainable practices
Sustainable Development Goals
With sustainable solutions we address global challenges such as climate change, resource scarcity or urbanization and contribute to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.
In 2015, the member states of the United Nations unanimously adopted Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, setting themselves 17 social, economic, and environmental goals designed to promote sustainable development. The SDGs provide companies with a common guideline how to support the goals and also provide potential for unlocking business opportunities.
