Sustainability

How we live and implement sustainability

This is what sustainability means to us

Our approach to sustainability is manifested in our purpose: We co-create living spaces for generations to come. Among the many definitions, we orient towards the definition of sustainability as the possibility that all people and all life on earth can flourish forever.

Sustainability Strategy

Since 2021, we have had a global climate strategy, but this was just a good start. While curbing climate change is one of the key levers for a sustainable future, we knew we must look beyond climate. This is why we have been working on a holistic sustainability strategy. We did so using one of the most robust, science-based tools: the Future-Fit Business Benchmark. Future-Fit Business Benchmark takes the Doughnut Model and the Sustainable Development Goals and breaks them down into concrete indicators for a company. As a result, a clear, long term journey towards a social and environmental break-even goal is provided. Reaching this break-even goal minimizes the potential negative impacts associated with what we buy, what we sell, and what we do while maximizing our positive impacts on people and planet. With our sustainability strategy we set ourselves a first clear milestone on the path towards becoming fully sustainable - in other words - a Future-Fit business. We hope to inspire others with our sustainability strategy, which we published in the Viessmann Sustainability Report. The report can be downloaded here:

Brand claim "for our climate"

Our brand stands for climate – the topic that has united us at Viessmann for generations. As well as referring to individual room climates, which we optimize together with our partners and end customers, the claim also emphasizes our strategic response to climate change.

Climate Strategy

Our climate strategy

With our 2021 climate strategy "LEAP to Net Zero", we set ourselves a clear plan of action with 1.5° science-based targets for our own operations, supply chain and product portfolio. The most recent update of the strategy is found in the net zero chapter in the 2023 Viessmann Sustainability Report.
