Sustainability at Giesecke+Devrient

Trust grows from sustainable action

G+D has been the trusted partner of the most demanding institutions since 1852. Today, we shape trust in the digital age – without changing what we always did: Creating Confidence. And we know that trust in G+D grows from our reliable, responsible actions in terms of sustainability.

Our sustainability strategy is based on the ESG criteria - the three pillars of environment, social, and governance. We have identified our core action areas within these three pillars and set ourselves specific targets - for example, for climate protection or lifelong learning - in order to operate in an increasingly sustainable manner. The ESG Committee, established in 2022, and the Corporate Sustainability department set the course for our activities and report directly to the Group CEO.

Measures and targets: What is G+D doing in terms of sustainability?

Environment

This is where we bundle our commitment to climate and environmental protection and the conservation of resources. This includes the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions at our sites, as well as the more resource-efficient design of our product portfolio.

Social

Topics that characterize G+D as an employer are anchored in this pillar: Lifelong learning opportunities, modern working models, as well as diversity and equal opportunities. The social commitment of G+D and the Giesecke+Devrient Foundation also fall under this area.

Governance

In the area of governance, we ensure responsible and sustainable corporate management. Topics include digital responsibility, data protection, sustainable supply chains and the integrity of our daily actions.

Reaching the goal together

We are active in a variety of sustainable ways - both within the company and externally. And in everything we do, we have a common goal in mind: we want to be leading in our markets when it comes to ecological and social issues and, through our responsible actions, contribute wholeheartedly to a sustainable society and an environment worth living in.

Our contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals

Alongside ESG criteria, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations (UN) are an important point of reference for us in our commitment to sustainability. In particular, G+D contributes to nine out of seventeen SDGs:
