Sustainability (CSR)

We act with integrity and responsibility for the environment. As a company which is aware of its responsibilities, we economise our use of resources and act in an environmentally friendly manner. With energy-efficient drive systems, we support the industry in reducing CO2 emissions.

Principles of responsibility influence our business activities

As a globally active company, we assume our responsibility locally on site and also in our business areas all around the world. We and our employees want to improve continuously, whether in occupational safety or in optimisation of procedures with our suppliers. Economic, profit-oriented development and environmental protection and energy savings are not understood as conflicting interests but rather a common goal.

Our CSR strategy and fields of action

Our sustainability work is a promise to our customers, to the public and to the employees of the NORD DRIVESYSTEMS Group, to consequently behave in an ecological, economic and socially responsible manner.

Company Policy and Code of Conduct

The satisfaction and success of our customers is the focus of our thoughts and actions. Our mission statement and our values form the holistic approach with which we reconcile economic efficiency and sustainability in all fields. This does not only include innovations in energy efficiency but also employee-oriented behaviour as well as a global and collaborative network.

This Company Policy applies to all subsidiaries and business units of NORD DRIVESYSTEMS, and is binding for the management board, all managers and employees. We expect our suppliers to pursue the same values, objectives and management approaches. For this reason, the Code of Conduct must also be observed by contract partners working on our premises.

Within the meaning of our Code of Conduct, we assume responsibility by considering the consequences of our business decisions and activities in economic, technological, social and ecological terms, and appropriately reconciling interests.

Reports, certificates, audits

As a company, we rely on certifications, independent audits, international reporting and memberships in global associations to demonstrate our commitment to transparency and sustainability. In line with our sustainability strategy, we strive to regularly submit ourselves to the evaluation of independent institutions.

Efficient drive solutions from NORD

At NORD DRIVESYSTEMS, we are constantly working to improve our products with regard to their energy consumption. This means not only focusing on financial benefits in view of rising prices of energy. As a dedicated family company, we are also aiming at a positive influence on the global carbon footprint for future generations.

Supply chain (LkSG)

The NORD DRIVESYSTEMS Group will implement the Supply Chain Act by 2023. We want to reassure our customers and all our colleagues that our products are made with raw materials and components from sustainable production and that it goes without saying that our partners along the supply chain are also committed to human rights.


According to the Whistleblower Directive, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS has set up a system to report infringements. Reports are directly forwarded to our external ombudsman's office, FIRST PRIVACY GmbH in Bremen, Germany, where it will be kept confidential and, after a first review, will be forwarded to our internal compliance office for further consideration.
