Sustainability at TTTech

Considering TTTech’s vision: “Advancing safe technologies, improving human lives” it goes without saying that sustainability is on top of our agenda.

Protecting our planet by reducing the CO2 footprint

Climate change is one of the major issues affecting our world and mastering the challenge to slow down and finally stop climate change is a key to keeping our planet livable. For this to be achieved, the emission of climate-damaging gases needs to be reduced as much as possible. Carbondioxide (CO2) is seen as a major contributor to the greenhouse effect, and in the context of TTTech’s business activities it is by far the most important one.

Assuming responsibility to reduce CO2 emissions, TTTech has thoroughly evaluated the respective footprint and set several measures to reduce it: 

  • TTTech pursues the goal of using electricity from renewables as much as possible. Some locations (including the major sites in Vienna and Munich) have already switched to “green” electricity, others will follow. 
  • In addition, TTTech policies support avoiding CO2 emission in many areas. A comprehensive remote working policy not only meets expectations of employees, but also reduces commuting between home and office, thus avoiding emissions caused by traveling. 
  • Business travel has been reduced considerably, and travel by train is encouraged. To deliver products and services that fully meet our customers’ expectations, sometimes air travel is unavoidable. TTTech supports selected projects to compensate for the CO2 emission resulting from flights.

Sustainability all along the way – and of course the supply chain

TTTech is a company without its own manufacturing sites, making it particularly important to ensure that the supply chain meets sustainability requirements. Our partner network consits of companies that manufacture our products close to our office locations to minimize the environmental footprint caused by shipping and business travel to our suppliers. In addition, we request our EMS (electronic manufacturing services) partners to be certified according to ISO 14001 and to comply with all legal requirements such as the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS) and the European Union regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH). 

A systematic approach – certified

A company works best and achieves the intended results when all organizational gear wheels mesh. Being focused on serving our customers and society as a whole, our processes fully comply with the standard ISO 9001. Even though this is a quality management standard, it also addresses some of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, among others, “no poverty”, “industry, innovation and infrastructure”, “responsible production and consumption”.

TTTech Group is strongly driving the improvement of its environmental performance. To ensure that the organizational gears fully transmit the power of these activities, TTTech has decided to complete the implementation of an Environmental Management System. Compliance with the standard ISO 14001 addresses twelve UN Sustainable Development Goals, such as “zero poverty”, “good health and well-being”, “quality education”, “clean water and sanitation”, “affordable and clean energy”, “decent work and economic growth”, “climate action” – important societal goals that TTTech fully subscribes to. 

Sustainability – the holistic view

Protecting our environment is one of today’s key responsibilities. Yet, true sustainability encompasses much more than just environmental protection, as is reflected in the UN Sustainable Development Goals. TTTech activities beyond those presented above address many additional important sustainability aspects. We offer employment and personal development opportunities based on the conviction that all people shall have equal rights and opportunities – TTTech’s highly skilled experts and managers represent more than 60 nationalities. 

Half a century ago, Peter Drucker coined the term “knowledge worker” – a perfect description of TTTech Group’s staff. Accordingly, continual training and education opportunities offer lifelong learning opportunities for all. By fostering continuous education, TTTech not only ensures to have the right competences to meet customer expectations, we are also convinced that knowledge, creativity and competence are key to master the challenges of our century.
