Sustainability as the key to success - VARTA's holistic approach for a liveable future

Sustainability strategy

VARTA takes a holistic approach to sustainability in order to protect the environment, assume social responsibility and ensure long-term economic success.

On a corporate level, VARTA’s five goals enable the company to implement the sustainability strategy. They serve as a compass for the evaluation of current and future performance. The identifi cation of material topics provides orientation for the prioritisation of actions and therefore shape the organisation's sustainability strategy. Policies provide a guideline and work instruction to align employee behaviour with the achievement of the goals. Policies in all ESG areas are described in detail within the corresponding sections:

Community engagement

VARTA's business activities are built in communities that are also at the centre of these business activities. As part of its social commitment, VARTA therefore supports projects that promote local communities and sustainability.

Within its sponsoring activities of various local and European sports clubs, VARTA also supports the German Deaf Sports Association in promoting athletes with hearing loss. VARTA is also active in the area of child and youth development: the company exchanges ideas with schoolchildren and students in the context of various projects, thereby contributing to education for sustainable development. By participating in public and charitable sporting events, employees worldwide support the collection of monetary donations and collect donations in kind for those in need.


VARTA’s diligent efforts garnered recognition in the industry: The ESG Risk Rating Sustainalytics has awarded VARTA the badge "ESG Industry Top Rated for 2024".

In 2024, VARTA is also among the top 5% of all companies rated by a globally recognized, cross-industry sustainability rating. In 2022 all five production sites were audited according to the WCA Standard. All audited locations achieved a Workplace Performance Indey of over 85% and therefore finished with a very overall result.
