Top awareness of ecological, economic, and social responsibility
- Social Listening by "Deutschland Test" and IMWF
- Award from "Focus Money" magazine
- Arvato Systems receives the "Germany's Best" seal for sustainability
Gütersloh – Which companies and brands do people perceive positively regarding sustainability? This question was investigated by the "Deutschland Test" together with the Hamburg Institute for Management and Economic Research (IMWF), and as a result, together with "Focus Money", the seal "Germany's Best - Sustainability 2022" was awarded. In a large-scale social listening exercise, Arvato Systems came first with the best score for IT service providers.
Business success is measured not only by economic indicators but also by how sustainably and responsibly companies act. Arvato Systems sees itself as a part of and partner to society and is committed to taking responsibility for its employees, culture, and the environment. This is reflected, for instance, in extensive measures relating to energy efficiency in the company's data centers, which have been and are being implemented over many years, or in the use of green electricity. In addition, the IT service provider is also working on the responsible use of Artificial Intelligence. And the topic of diversity also plays an important role. For instance, the Arvato Systems women's network "herSystemS" was founded several years ago. Likewise, the company attends explicitly recruiting events that address certain target groups - for example, women from the tech environment or people from the LGBTIQ community.
"All of these are, of course, just individual examples," says Ralf Schürmann, a member of the Arvato Systems Management Board, where he is responsible for corporate responsibility. "We try to be active as a company in many places. This starts with waste avoidance - even on a small scale - and extends to the possibility of taking advantage of offers for company bicycles and extensive efforts to be climate-neutral in the foreseeable future," Schürmann continued. "And we want to do all this in teams that are as diverse as possible - because they are more successful!"
