What does the framework for environmentally compatible production look like at STEINEL? And how can clever product development lead to greater sustainability? A look behind the scenes shows our striving for energy efficiency, environmental and climate protection.


Social Responsibility

We put people at the center. Whether as an employee, learner, manager or inventor. Our set of values is expressed in the STEINEL mission statement. This is our guiding principle for our actions and demonstrates our responsibility.



Our goal of sustainable corporate management requires the integration of social and ecological concerns. Independent certifications create transparency and provide security for our products and supply chains.

With our invention of the world's first sensor light in 1987, we practically redefined light. The fact that it only switches on when it is actually needed was new at the time and a real revolution. And a sign against waste of energy and resources.
German Sustainability Code DNK
For us, sustainability does not just mean short-term actionism, but requires a long-term strategy and overall orientation of a company. That is why we apply the German Sustainability Code and report on our sustainability performance based on the 20 criteria of the Code.

We are doing everything we can to further optimize our energy-efficient solutions. Through consulting and with a comprehensive range of services, we support their use in projects to reduce energy waste.

Education and training

The knowledge and skills of each individual are the basis for our joint success. Measures for training and further education are therefore particularly important for us.



Our commitment

In addition to the legal requirements, STEINEL has drawn up its own Code of Conduct and a mission statement for all employees. Steinel GmbH also supports the Code of Conduct of the Amfori Business Social Compliance Initiative BSCI, a European business initiative for improving working conditions in the global supply chain.
The new requirements relating to social and ethical responsibility in the supply chain resulting from the Supply Chain Sourcing Obligations Act are implemented via AI-based risk assessment of suppliers.
