(Marchtrenk, Austria, 20 November 2023) For the intralogistics specialist TGW Logistics, entrepreneurial action and shouldering social responsibility are inextricably linked. The foundation-owned company acts in accordance with the philosophy "Focusing on People – Learning and Growing," taking a long-term view and focusing on social, economic and ecological sustainability. For the good of its over 4,400 employees, its international customers and society as a whole.
One year ago, in October 2022, TGW Logistics joined the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC): the world's largest and most important initiative for responsible corporate management. By becoming a member, the intralogistics specialist has taken the next step and set an example for the outside world. As a part of this United Nations network of over 20,000 companies, TGW Logistics holds itself to the Compact's ten principles in the areas of human rights, labour standards, environmental protection and fighting corruption.
TGW Logistics has committed itself to actively uphold these principles and to integrate them into all aspects of its business. The technology company is already systematically evaluating its supply chain, assessing potential risks and continuously implementing improvement measures.
