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 know that we still have a considerable journey ahead of us before we achieve our vision of climate neutrality. Nevertheless,
it is crucial that we approach this challenge with the determination to improve, year after year.”

Felix & Jens Fiege
Holistic. Now. Together.

Sustainability is more than just a word for FIEGE – it is a commitment that is deeply ingrained in our corporate ethos and finds tangible expression through concrete actions.

Sustainable action encompasses all areas of the company. For this reason, the Executive Board, the heads of the business units, branches and those in charge of central functions across the Group all help to develop, manage and follow-through with our sustainability goals.

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 the department responsible for overseeing, developing and rolling out sustainability management. Its team is the central point of contact for all relevant information and adopts a superordinate perspective by coordinating activities and keeping an eye on current legislation and trends. It also serves as a central point of contact for customer requirements. National and international Sustainability Excellence Managers entrench the topic even further within the respective business units to support the team.

Development of in-house sustainability experts within the business units in close exchange with Corporate Sustainability

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.
