CR fields of action

Knorr-Bremse’s Corporate Responsibility Strategy is reflected in six fields of action in which CR-relevant measures are concentrated and developed. “Strategy and Management” and “Communication and Cooperation” create the overarching framework for the four content-related fields of action:

Strategy and Management

Knorr-Bremse includes sustainability aspects in its strategic planning and operational processes, systematically striving for sustainable value creation.

Products and Partners

Knorr-Bremse purposefully develops solutions that combine maximum customer benefit with sustainable value creation. We cooperate closely with our customers and suppliers to jointly improve the safety and quality – as well as the environmental and social compatibility – of our products.

Employees and Leadership

Knorr-Bremse is determined to offer an attractive and safe working environment in which trust, teamwork, equal opportunities and fair and respectful treatment of one another are both valued and realized.

Environment and Climate

Knorr-Bremse endeavors to make responsible use of resources, minimizing negative effects on nature and the environment as far as possible and actively taking advantage of opportunities to protect the environment.

Commitment and Society

Knorr-Bremse supports social and societal concerns and commits itself to being a good corporate citizen on a global scale.

Communication and Cooperation

Knorr-Bremse aspires to maintaining an open and constructive dialog with the various interest groups and informing them regularly and transparently about advances made in sustainability performance.

We prioritize sustainability topics of special importance to us by means of a materiality analysis in which we match the environmental and social challenges for our business with the requirements of our stakeholders. We pay special attention to those subjects that are very important both for the stakeholders and the business. Our CR program is aligned to this materiality matrix.

The subject fields were considered and classified according to these criteria:

  • Current and future influences on corporate actions
  • How Knorr-Bremse can influence the subject fields
  • Importance for internal stakeholders such as employees, owners and management
  • Importance for external stakeholders such as customers, networks and the public at large
  • Demands made on sustainability management and reporting by national and international organizations
