Thinking sustainably whilst acting commercially is not a contradiction for us, but simply our daily work. And since sustainability and environmental protection are central guiding principles for us at ASSMANN, we are not only producing our environmental statement, but since 2012 we have also regularly published sustainability reports.
Today for tomorrow. Our sustainability strategy
With our sustainability strategy we not only want to deliver facts, but also make suggestions and give food for thought. For a sustainable future and successful economic activity in an international family business.
Careful use of resources
At ASSMANN Office Furniture we can look back on 20 years of environmental management in accordance with the European directive (EMAS). That's 20 years of continually making improvements with regard to the environment and resources, which pays off in many respects: We are living up to our role as a responsible company and fulfil the obligations of the sustainability strategy in Germany. We are continually working on the ergonomic and economic improvement of production processes and are focusing on the sustainable use of energy and the latest technologies which enable us to manufacture in an even more environmentally friendly and flexible way.
In our role as a manufacturer, preserving the environment and its resources is one of our strategic success factors alongside product technology, quality, innovative technology and cost efficiency. Relevant certifications confirm our good work.
Accepting the challenges of digitalisation and maintaining a down-to-earth character
Reliability and durability are essential values of our conduct. Sustainability – also in terms of a process of continuous improvement – for instance with a certified environmental and quality management system, is an integral part of our corporate culture, in keeping with our ‘good work’ guiding principle. In the coming years it will be about meeting the challenges of increasing automation and digitalisation while preserving a down-to-earth attitude. Our declared goal is healthy growth by our own efforts.
Good staff, good work
As a family business with regional roots we are only as good as our colleagues. With a comprehensive operating performance and a flat organisational structure, we want to create a working environment where everyone in the company wants to do a good job. Our roots are the source of a strong sense of regional responsibility. We have been a reliable and attractive employer for people in the region for almost 80 years. We offer our staff safe, attractive and motivating working conditions which we are continuously improving..
Furniture concepts and systems for people
Sustainability plays a decisive role, not only in view of our own employees. The individual is also the focal point of product development and conceptual planning. After all, everyone has their own personal ideas and requirements. In order to continue to work well and achieve sustainable success, we at ASSMANN Office Furniture adapt to the different requirements - with furniture systems and concepts which make distinctive and individual office solutions feasible and affordable.
We know the challenges of “Work 4.0” and “Office 4.0.” In the sustainability report we answer the question: “How will we work tomorrow?”
Creating sustainable working environments together
Together with our retail partners and customers we are taking on the challenges of a dynamically changing work world and view them as an opportunity. We at ASSMANN Office Furniture will be consistent in pursuing this path by taking our image from a manufacturer of office furniture systems to a solution provider for modern working environments. The wishes and requests of our customers are what drives us to continuously and sustainably improve ourselves and our products. To this end we also take up our supply chain on its promise and expect a commitment from our suppliers to sustainability as well as ecological and social standards.
