VDMA - corporate social responsibility (CSR) only feasible on a voluntary basis


VDMA welcomes the fact that the European Commission is not planning any further corporate social responsibility (CSR) regulations for the time being. Further development of the European CSR strategy is only feasible on the basis of the voluntary commitment of companies.


Sustainability – applying the regulations correctly, benefiting from funding


The mechanical and plant engineering sector is committed to its responsibility for ecology and society, and with every new development the sector shows that sustainability increases profitability at the same time. With its Blue Competence initiative, the VDMA is making it clear that acting sustainably is not just good, but useful. However, having insufficient knowledge of the environmental legislation could cost companies dearly.
