Corporate Social Responsibility

As a family business, social values are deeply rooted in Hilscher's structure and mindset. A responsible approach and contribution to society is a declared corporate goal alongside economic success. That is why we consistently focus our work on universal principles such as respect for human rights and a ban on child labor. However, specific guidelines such as the avoidance of conflict minerals are also of central importance to us.

Our guidelines

Code of Conduct

In our day-to-day actions we readily acknowledge our responsibility to society. As a company, it is our duty to have a positive impact on society and the quality of life of the people around us. For that reason, we have committed ourselves to the Code of Conduct (CoC) of the German Electro and Digital Industry Association (ZVEI). The industry guide sets out how we take responsibility for our business activities. This applies in particular to working conditions, social and environmental compatibility, transparency, cooperation based on trust, and dialog.

Diversity

It’s our differences that make us unique, and we consider them a matter of course. For us, they comprise a large part of our dealings with each other, which is why they also contribute to our success as a company. That is why we at Hilscher accept every human being just as they are. Discrimination, bullying, sexual harassment and racism have no place here and will always be prosecuted.

Thanks to its multi-protocol capability, Hilscher products can be integrated into almost any industrial application—yours included!
Conflict minerals

In addition to protection of the climate and environment, we also focus on social sustainability beyond our corporate boundaries. This includes, among other things, renouncing the use of what are known as conflict minerals such as tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold from the Democratic Republic of Congo and neighboring countries. Resources from this region can be used to finance violence and conflict. We require our suppliers to take reasonable steps to ensure that the products delivered to us contain only conflict-free substances.
