All of EVVA’s sustainablity topics are available online at any time in German and English on the website https://www.evva.com/int-en/aboutus/sustainability-report . The modular design allows intuitive navigation through the report. “Simply start with the topic that interests you the most and gradually discover our family business' diverse commitment to sustainability,” explains Martin Mayrhofer, author of the EVVA Sustainability Report and Head of Internal Communications at EVVA.
As a family-owned company, it is a matter close to the heart of the management to produce from generation to generation in the most resource-efficient way possible, while at the same time establishing a meaningful business model for the benefit of customers and employees: “We are not only committed to this for future generations, but also for our own today,” explains Nicole Ehrlich-Adám, Chief People Officer and member of the EVVA management. "We focus our leverage where we can influence our greatest impact. After all, this is also where the greatest potential for improvement lies. This is why this Sustainability Report means a lot for EVVA and for us personally." EVVA has been complying with the world’s leading GRI standard for years, which enables comprehensive, serious and internationally comparable reporting. EVVA has also defined its own climate-neutrality targets for the headquarters for the first time.
"Success is only possible thanks to the commitment and support of our employees. As a result, EVVA continues to be a pioneer in sustainability in the industry," Ehrlich-Adám is pleased to report.
The most important updates in the EVVA Sustainability Report
EVVA reports according to the new GRI standard
The updated GRI Universal Standards have been in force since January 2023, according to which EVVA also reports. In this way, our company is reaching an important milestone in preparing for future laws in the area of sustainability.
EVVA is radically reducing its emissions
EVVA has now also defined its own climate-neutrality targets for the headquarters for the first time. The aim is to neutralise the emissions EVVA can influence itself (heating systems, fleet, purchased electricity) by 2030, which currently amounts to approx. 850 tonnes of CO2 per year. The 100% green electricity that EVVA has been purchasing since 2022 is an important success on our way there.
