Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility(CSR) at leogistics

Social Responsibility - a matter close to our

Getting Active Together
CSR in the sense of sustainable business and development as well as social responsibility has long since ceased to be a rarity in companies. This includes social, ecological and economic aspects. So it is also a matter of course for leogistics GmbH to promote and further develop these topics.

Sustainable business means change.

As an employing organization, we want to create a prejudice-free working climate free of discrimination and safe working conditions for all employees. In addition, we also want to make a contribution to society outside our business environment and support people who need help. Finally, climate protection is also becoming an increasingly important issue for which we want to take greater responsibility.Translated with (free version)

Climate change is the responsibility of us all.

As stipulated in the Paris Climate Agreement, companies must become climate-neutral by 2050. In close cooperation with our parent company Materna, we want to have already achieved significant improvements before then. Because it is not only important for us as a company to position ourselves more sustainably; our customers are also attaching increasing importance to the issue.Sustainable business has long since ceased to be a “nice-to-have,” but a necessity that we are happy to meet as a responsible company. For many years, leogistics GmbH has also been involved in various social projects. This allows us to use our economic success to help other social groups in various areas such as equality, mass sports and fundraising.

leo for PAUL

With leo for PAUL, we support a donation initiative for drinking water treatment in crisis regions. PAUL (Portable Aqua Unit for Lifesaving) is a portable water filter unit and was developed by the Department of Urban Water Management in the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Kassel. The blue water backpack is used in emergency and disaster situations, where it treats 1,200 liters of water per day: without energy, chemicals, maintenance or trained personnel. Around 400 people can help themselves with it.
