Our Corporate Responsibility
Alstom Germany assumes its social and environmental responsibility by focusing on a sustainable corporate strategy along the complete value chain. Our corporate responsibility towards employees, society and the environment is a crucial part of every corporate decision.
Environmental Protection & Production
Due to environmentally sensitive considerations, Alstom solely uses energy saving lamps in all its locations. Furthermore, our videoconferencing system enables our employees to avoid unnecessary travelling whenever possible.
Local Corporate Citizenship
Beyond the scope of our business operations, Alstom Germany feels responsible for its social environment. We support a wide range of projects on education, culture and social issues. With regard to the shortage of skilled professionals, it is one of our main concerns to inspire young people to take an interest in technical subjects. Therefore, Alstom co-operates with schools and universities, offers factory visits at production sites, and has for some years been providing support to the “Girls’ Day”, an initiative to promote technical professions to young women. Moreover, Alstom actively commits itself to charitable causes; for example, by organising fundraising campaigns and by supporting initiatives.
Workplace Improvement and Employee Development
In order to promote the individual development of our employees, Alstom offers a variety of professional programmes. We are devoted to a family friendly corporate policy and support our employees in managing the balancing act between their family and their job with possibilities such as cost sharing for childcare by the company and flexible working hours.
