Sustainability Update 2023: Globalizing Efforts and Advancing Goals

In 2022, Windmöller & Hölscher embarked on a journey to redefine sustainability, moving from values rooted in our traditional, family-owned heritage to embracing a strategic, comprehensive approach across environmental, social, and governance dimensions (ESG).

The 2023 Update to our Sustainability Report is a testament to this evolution, highlighting our global integration and strides in sustainability. For the first time, the report spans the entire W&H Group, showcasing the efforts of our newly implemented regional Sustainability Managers.

Here are some highlights of what we have achieved from autumn 2022 to autumn 2023:

Environment & Social

Carbon footprint:

  • We are targeting a reduction pathway of 21% greenhouse gas reduction in Scopes 1 and 2 within 5 years. In 2023, we achieved an overall reduction of 33%, exceeding this reduction target.
Circular economy:


Good employer:

  • W&H once again achieved the highest scores in the "Fairness" section of our employee survey, giving us a good scorecard in our goal of equal opportunity. A special focus was placed on students who are not yet working at W&H, with additional activities in the areas of career guidance and vocational training.
Social Commitment:
  • W&H continues to support its local communities by sponsoring sports, educational and social clubs.



  • We are proud to be a family-owned company with a long-term strategic focus. In 2023, the generational change in the Executive Board was implemented while maintaining this sustainable organization with a renewed high level of commitment from our shareholders.
