The Hilti Group, headquartered in Schaan, Lichtenstein, has been awarded a gold rating by the international sustainability rating agency EcoVadis – an improvement from its silver rating in 2020. The gold rating is only held by the top 5% of all 75,000 global companies assessed.

EcoVadis rates companies according to a total of twenty-one criteria in the four main topic areas of environment, labour & human rights, fair business practices and sustainable procurement. Hilti was recognised for the following: the progress made in the area of sustainable procurement; the role of sustainability in the selection of suppliers; the systematic, holistic approach taken in the area of labour & human rights and the resulting improved transparency.

In spring 2021, the Hilti Group presented its expanded sustainability strategy and published its first Sustainability Report. The strategy outlined is based on a holistic understanding of sustainability and covers the environment, people and society as fields of action. In addition to new targets, the strategy also includes the tightening up of existing targets, such as achieving CO2 neutrality in the company’s own value chain as early as 2023.

“We are pleased that our intensive efforts to become more sustainable as a company are already beginning to bear fruit. Our gold rating reaffirms that we take this seriously,” stated Christoph Loos, CEO of the Hilti Group. “However, we will not rest on this result and are, rather, motivated to further improve. We want to become the leader in our industry when it comes to sustainability.”
