      Krones again one of the industry’s leaders

      Accolade for sustainability operations
      With the maximum possible rating of B-, Krones ranks among the leading plant and machinery manufacturers in terms of sustainability.

      The internationally leading rating agency oekom research scrutinises the sustainability performance of companies from all over the world. In February, Krones once again received B- Prime status – for what is already the fourth time in succession.

      172 industrial companies were assessed by oekom research, the majority of them being rated at D+. Only fewer than five per cent of these companies (including Krones ) were awarded the maximum possible rating of B- and thus rank among the leading plant and machinery manufacturers in terms of sustainability.

      The rating covers the company’s operations in regard to social responsibility and sustainable eco-management. These are weighted using more than 100 criteria specifically selected as relevant to the sector. Krones performed particularly well in two categories: in the “staff” aspect, oekom research praised the opportunities for staff in terms of an equitable work-life balance, while in regard to “eco-efficiency”, the rating agency especially emphasised the responsible management of media and energy at Krones.

      “The fact that this year we’ve again defended our B- Prime status is a notable success. The rating provides us with an independent appraisal that this year, too, confirms that we’re on the right track when it comes to sustainability,” to quote a gratified Nico Irrgang, CSR Project Coordinator at Krones.
