Sustainability at HAWE Hydraulik

Economic, ecological and social sustainability is part of HAWE Hydraulik’s corporate responsibility. Our business principles document this claim.

Sustainable profits, a healthy equity base and the long-term approach taken by the company’s management safeguard our jobs and our relationships with business partners over the long term.

HAWE Hydraulik’s quality management system sets standards that are valid for the entire HAWE Group worldwide. The system has been certified since 1994 in accordance with DIN EN ISO 9001 and is reviewed by independent organizations at regular intervals. A matrix certification applies to the entire HAWE Group.

In 2008, HAWE Hydraulik gradually began devising and implementing environmental and energy management systems as well as a system for workplace safety and health protection (Download "Industrial Safety and Environmental Policy"). The headquarters in Munich (administration and production) and the plants in Freising, Kaufbeuren and Sachsenkam now have matrix certification in accordance with ISO 14001, ISO 50001 and OHSAS 18001.
