In our role as an innovative family-owned company, we are committed to managing resources responsibly. This commitment to protect the environment also applies to each one of our employees. Hence we view environmental protection as more than merely complying with legal requirements; rather, sustainability is an integral part of our corporate culture and a key responsibility in line with operational management. In this vein, we strive to continuously optimize our products, technologies and processes towards increased environmental sustainability.
The evidence is provided by our products and technologies on a daily basis, whereby our development and innovation efforts focus particularly on aspects related to reducing consumption and increasing efficiency. In this context, we have identified three optimization areas: cost savings for drivers through the reduction of fuel consumption, the sustainable use of resources, and the minimization of CO2 emissions. This process is accompanied by a great need for innovative solution approaches. HELLA has a broad range of product solutions which contribute to saving fuel or reducing CO2 emissions-both in electronics as well as lighting.
HELLA actively contributes towards protecting the environment through its innovative product solutions, such as the intelligent battery sensor or the energy – efficient "Eco StreetLine" LED street lighting concept, but also through compliance with demanding environmental standards in development and production. These standards are precisely defined in guidelines and certification specifications, and apply to all of our locations across the globe. In this context, all HELLA locations are certified according to the "ISO 14001" environmental management system. In addition, we strive to continuously find new potentials for environmental protection at all our locations.
