We follow our values, care about our stakeholders and the environment beyond legal requirements, and proactively prevent risks.
The foundation of our WEPA Sustainability Strategy ensures that we care about all stakeholders, act in a value-oriented manner and are committed to people and the environment beyond legal requirements. Engaged and qualified employees are our most important success factor. That is why we want to offer our nearly 4,000 employees who work for the WEPA Group at 13 European locations the best place for their talents and skills, their personal development and collaboration. We have firmly established this in our strategy programme “Perform & Transform – WEPA 2023” with the transformation goal “Best place to work” to sustainably strengthen and expand our position as a responsible and attractive employer. The first priority is the safety and health of our employees and the creation of a diverse, supportive and motivating working environment. Our employees guarantee maximum product quality, which we seamlessly assure through our quality management. As a family business, we also value long-term partnerships and take care to ensure that our high requirements and standards are fulfilled along the entire supply chain.
Since 2018 we have achieved a 30% reduction in work accidents. We are committed to ensuring the health and safety of our employees without compromise:
*Lost time injury Rate – accident frequency
Our products meet the highest product safety standards. In doing so, we are making a contribution to protecting the environment and consumer health.
By 2023, we aim to achieve the following, among other things:
* Based on an evaluation by an external institute in accordance with an internationally recognised method.
** “Charta der Vielfalt” (German diversity charter) is a self-commitment of the signatory to the promotion of equal opportunities for employees.
We take responsibility towards society and our direct neighbors and support projects in the areas of sport and culture, social services and charity projects. In the future, we want to expand our commitment alongside the WEPA foundation and will educate people about hygiene and environmental issues.
Our self-conception as a sustainable family business has always included trustworthy cooperations with external partners.
We are committed together to environmental and social projects, and carefully select which partnerships support our holistic approach to sustainability. Through this dialogue we are in a constant state of development, and, via our commitment, are able to positively impact areas relevant to us. In doing so, we learn and benefit from each other – for the benefit of people and the environment.LEARN MORE
