At Radermacher & Partner we act responsibly - not only towards our clients and business partners, but also towards our employees, the environment and our social community. In order to highlight our corporate responsibility and further improve our performance, we have established a sustainability management system and continuously implement CSR measures initiated by our team.
The Radermacher Group acknowledges its responsibility for the protection of the environment and operates in a sustainable and resource-saving manner. We actively reduce our consumption of energy and other resources and avoid waste. As management consultants and consulting engineers, we travel a lot - and wherever possible, we do so in a climate-neutral manner using Deutsche Bahn long-distance trains or other public transportation. In addition, we have been using 100% green electricity at our business headquarters for several years, which does not cause any CO2 emissions. When selecting our business information technology (computers, smartphones, etc.), we are guided by energy balance and longevity and rely on manufacturers who have also anchored sustainability in their business.
Ensuring the safety and well-being of our employees is a central imperative of our business activities. We therefore ensure a safe working environment and support the health of the people who work for us by providing appropriate working conditions. We provide fair working conditions, equal opportunities and individual support for all employees. We see diversity as an opportunity and live and promote a corporate culture characterized by mutual respect, tolerance and appreciation. We also focus on diversity with regard to the education, skills, experience and family background of our employees.
It is important to us that the relationship between employees and management is based on partnership, which is expressed in a cooperative management style. Our employment relationships are designed for the long term ("stay and grow" instead of "up or out"). We offer permanent contracts and attractive, industry-standard pay according to a transparent remuneration system that is uniform for all employees. Furthermore, we continuously offer our employees individual measures geared to their specific development wishes. In annual staff appraisals, we jointly evaluate the past year and agree on goals and perspectives.
Integrity and transparency are the top priorities in our relationship with our clients. In our mandates, we meet the highest standards of our work, feel committed to our clients and offer them real added value. In doing so, we work closely and in partnership with our clients, but always maintain the necessary independence and distance in both personal and professional dealings. All employees of the Radermacher Group are committed to honest, responsible and fair cooperation with our clients.
We are committed to the community and support social and economic issues in the region of our headquarters through selected activities. We regularly prepare and publish sustainability reports in accordance with the German Sustainability Code and have our sustainability activities evaluated by an independent body. We underline our high standards by achieving top rankings among the companies assessed and by continuously developing our reporting. The appointment of a CSR manager with a direct reporting line to the Executive Board ensures management attention to the issue of sustainability at all times.
We received a "platinum" rating for our current sustainability activities from "EcoVadis", the world's largest provider of sustainability ratings for companies, placing us among the top 1% of companies rated.
Our sustainability strategy is based on the German Sustainability Code (DNK). Our entry in the DNK database and the current Sustainability Report for 2021 are available below.
