Our contribution for a sustainable future.

NO EMPTY PROMISES.

As Brigl & Bergmeister, we want to create an attractive and respectful environment for our employees. At the same time, we want to make our contribution to mitigating climate change and continuously reduce our emissions.

To this end, ambitious targets have been defined, which are to be achieved through a variety of short-, medium- and long-term measures. This means that Brigl & Bergmeister with both sites (Niklasdorf and Vevče) is committed to implementing these far-reaching measures with absolute conviction.

THE BRIGL & BERGMEISTER SUSTAINABILITY PROGRAM.

THE BRIGL & BERGMEISTER SUSTAINABILITY PROGRAM.

In a complex process based on the specifications of standardized methods, areas were defined in which measures are to be implemented. For this purpose, a survey was sent to all employees as well as to all our customers, suppliers, banks, owners and the management in 2022 (the so-called stakeholder survey). Through this method, it was determined in which areas Brigl & Bergmeister needs to improve and where the greatest need is to take action.

These areas were transferred into a sustainability program and cover the topics of people, environment and economy:
