Klüber Lubrication awarded Gold for sustainability

Klüber Lubrication has been awarded the Gold Medal by EcoVadis, a leading rating company for sustainability, and is thus among the top six percent of the more than 90,000 companies assessed worldwide.

The specialty lubricants company was able to score well above average in the areas of ‘environment’ and ‘labour and human rights’. Klüber Lubrication also achieved excellent ratings in the areas of ‘ethics’ and ‘sustainable procurement’.

“After receiving silver in 2019 and 2021, we have now been awarded gold – an important external recognition for our efforts,” explains Markus Hermann, sustainability manager at Klüber Lubrication. “The rating is also relevant for our customers, as they increasingly attach importance to such an evaluation of their suppliers.”

The award reflects the company’s commitment to climate protection and the high standards Klüber Lubrication sets for its own ecological footprint. And in addition to the its ecological footprint, Klüber Lubrication says that far greater contributions to climate protection can be achieved through the ‘handprint’, by helping users to produce more safely, efficiently and sustainably.

As a manufacturer of tailor-made specialty lubricants, Klüber Lubrication says it is very well positioned here, because this often underestimated component can make an enormous contribution to greater energy efficiency and sustainability. In 2021, Klüber Lubrication’s customers were able to save around 396 GWh of electricity – or 52,000 tons of CO2 –through KlüberEnergy projects and the associated increases in efficiency.

In the other evaluated areas Klüber Lubrication is also making good progress. For example, in the area of ‘diversity and inclusion’, the goal of increasing the proportion of women in management positions to at least 25 percent by 2025 was achieved in 2021. All of Klüber Lubrication’s suppliers have also committed to promoting the UN sustainability goals, which is reflected in the area of ‘sustainable procurement’. Several locations in Germany, China and Brazil have passed ethics and sustainability audits according to the Sedex standard with a certificate.
