Corporate Social Responsibility

Taking responsibility – for today and tomorrow

“As an internationally operating company, we are aware of our social, ecological and economic responsibility. To reach our sustainability goals, we are emphasizing the following 3 pillars – the support of our customers by choosing sustainable mobility solutions, responsible conduct as a company and our obligation as reliable and socially committed employer. For us, the interplay of these areas is especially decisive to make a valuable contribution as a company in the sense of Corporate Social Responsibility.”

Martin Kössler – Regional Director of ALD Automotive Austria

Responsibility as employer

As employer of over 80 employees in Austria, we feel responsible to create a workplace for them, that allows the full development of their abilities and enhances personal commitment.

Therefore, we focus on:

  •   The creation of a positive, inclusive working atmosphere
  •   The encouragement of our employees by internal and external personnel development     measures
  •   Gender equality
  •   Promotion of cultural diversity
  •   Serving as an example for social commitment

But the facts speak for themselves – we are proud of:

  •   A proportion of women of 50% in the management
  •   More than 60% female employees in an otherwise rather male-dominated industry
  •   Equal pay according to position not gender
  •   More than 10 different nationalities under one roof
  •   The award of the karriere.at quality label for our transparent insight for candidates
