Our approach to corporate sustainability

Thinking of Tomorrow, Today

Sustainability presents an opportunity for the future. But also, a responsibility we need to face. We view sustainable action also as requisite for the ongoing economic success of our family business.These actions need to be implemented holistically – at all our worldwide locations worldwide and across the supply chain, based on complying with the law and official guidelines, and in close collaboration with our partners.

„We will embed the idea of sustainability even more deeply in our company’s DNA, to hand FIEGE over to the next generation as a healthier and stronger company.“

Felix & Jens Fiege
Holistic. Now. Together.

Sustainability as part of our company’s DNA must become integral to our processes and taken into consideration every step of the way, in every area, and every department.

Sustainability at FIEGE


As a family business, it is in our DNA to think long-term.


We are shaping the transition towards sustainable development and show what sustainable logistics will look like in the future.

Market trends

We add value for our clients by integrating sustainability with our services and products.

The future

It is our goal to pass a healthy, climate neutral enterprise to the next generation.

Our sustainability strategy

Our overarching goal is to pass the company to the next, i.e., sixth generation. Naturally, we will only want to hand over the reins of our family business if it is healthy and climate positive.

Where are we today?

Are there actions that have both a positive and a negative impact on people and the environment? If so, where? What solutions can we offer? Which ones are needed compellingly? Where can we lead by example, also with the industry in mind? A materiality analysis is needed to determine material topics.

Fields of action and focus topics

Result of the materiality analysis

Based on the answers, we were able to identify and define a total of three fields of action as well as seven associated focus topics. Focus topics are currently rated as highly relevant. One consequence of the analysis is that we formulate strategic goals which we then co-ordinate with the respective departments and the company management.

Further relevant topics from our materiality analysis are also part of the sustainability report for reasons of transparency and completeness in relation to our business activities.

How is sustainability pursued within the organisation?

Corporate Sustainability is responsible for overseeing, developing, and rolling out sustainability management. It is this department that authored this report. Moreover, the department quantifies the carbon footprint and ensures participation in external ratings and scores, such as the CDP and EcoVadis.

The team works side by side with all service functions and all FIEGE business units. Corporate Sustainability operates as a junction and impulse driver for sustainability topics.

Initiatives and ratings – key memberships
What purpose do the different memberships serve?

The establishment of strategic partnerships is only one of the reasons for our respective membership in material initiatives. They also provide the opportunity to share best practices and enter an exchange with various stakeholders.
