Social responsibility forms the basis of our corporate guidelines. Fair and trusting relationships and interaction with our customers, employees and social environment are just as important as avoiding corruption and maintaining consistent alignment with the principles of sustainability.
We are also committed to an active system of risk management with the goal of reducing business, operational and environmental risks. At the same time, we place great emphasis on the topic of safety when developing, manufacturing and delivering our products. As a company with solid economic operations, we ensure transparent reporting and maintain a high level of financial power.
This is how we secure our business success for the future.
Committed, highly qualified staff are key to every company, and ours is no exception. They put their heart and soul into their work and are essential to the company's success.
And we are proud of this fact. But we also know that not everyone has the same opportunities to make full use of their talents, to add to their qualifications or to continually progress their careers.
This is why we set up the Hans Lenze Foundation Aerzen. It was established in 1990 by Elisabeth Belling to mark what would have been the 100th birthday of her father Hans Lenze, the founder of our company, and is currently managed by Julia von Opel, his great-granddaughter.
Through the foundation we provide assistance to all capable and committed young people who are unable to reach their goals for financial reasons. And it's not just employees we help - anyone is more than welcome to apply to our foundation for assistance.
