    Liebherr-MCCtec announces that they have been awarded a gold medal from independent corporate responsibility auditor EcoVadis.

    Electric RTGs minimize the environmental impact

    Liebherr-MCCtec is part of the Liebherr Group and is a divisional holding company for maritime cranes, crawler cranes, duty cycle crawler cranes as well as pilling and drilling rigs for deep foundation work. The gold medal for Liebherr-MCCtec places them in the top 5 % of all rated companies for sustainability and within the top 3 % of manufacturing companies globally.

    EcoVadis scores sustainability using indicators in four key areas; Environment, Labour and Human Rights, Ethics, and Sustainable Procurement. The gold medal from EcoVadis marks a clear progression from the silver medals awarded in 2019 to Liebherr Container Cranes in Ireland and Liebherr-MCCtec Rostock in Germany. It signifies progression and validation of the corporate responsibility policies and approach.

     

    Speaking about the award, Liebherr-MCCtec’s Corporate Responsibility Manager, Tatjana Grissemann commented. “Responsibility and care for the environment has always been a key component of Liebherr philosophy. We have been part of our respective communities for many decades and we have always cared for our local environment. Today, we carry that same responsibility with us, but as part of the global supply chain, we have a global responsibility.”

    A sustainable choice

    As an international company with well over 48,000 employees, the Liebherr Group bears a great responsibility for society and the environment. This is why the family-run Liebherr Group has also set itself a clear goal by anchoring the issue of sustainability in its core values. As part of the Liebherr Group, one of our core values is responsibility:

    “We aim at all times to fulfil our responsibility to society in general and to the environment.”

    Gold medal from EcoVadis places Liebherr-MCCtec amongst top 5% of companies globally

    They are convinced that they shall only achieve long-term success if they remain aware of this responsibility in all our activities. Protection of humanity and the environment is of special importance in our business activities. This means that their products and the processes used to manufacture them must be safe, efficient and environmentally acceptable.

    All-electric portal harbour cranes, a battery powered series of construction equipment as part of their Unplugged series along with their hybrid and electric powered port and terminal equipment give their customers the power to choose environmentally sustainable products. As governments, society and consumers demand more accountability from business, Liebherr’s commitment to sustainability, not only on the environmental front, but across human rights, procurement and labour gives our customers confidence that Liebherr is the sustainable choice.
