Taking responsibility for our planet

Social responsibility has always been an integral part of our corporate strategy. The dividends we generate support a wide range of projects in scientific research and social programs.

Today, taking responsibility has taken on new meanings. We know we have to do our part to stop climate change, and have set ourselves an ambitious goal.

 

Our pledge: Being carbon neutral by 2030

Making the world a better place

Hi, I'm Anja

I coordinate SCHOTT's Zero Carbon program. Just as glass is both strong and fragile, so is our planet, and by turning SCHOTT into a climate-neutral organization, we actively support the prevention of climate change for the generations to come. For me, it's more than a job, it's a mission, and I'm delighted to contribute.
A key role in the future

Hi, I'm Leon

I am a Sales and Business Development Manager, helping customers in a number of industries to create innovations with thin and ultra-thin glass. This type of specialty glass, some of which can be folded like paper, is genuinely exciting, and one of the reasons I wanted to work at SCHOTT.

Sustainability is high on the agenda for my generation. I really enjoy being a part of this future with a company that regards innovation and sustainability as vital parts of its business.
A family of #glasslovers

Hi, I'm Carlo

I have been a SCHOTT employee for more than 20 years, and now work in the Finance IT team. I regard my colleagues as a family – in fact, my brother also works here. It’s very common for members of the same family to work at SCHOTT. If you will, that’s also an expression of sustainability. What I love about glass? Even after two decades of working at SCHOTT, I’m still fascinated by this material. I’ll never forget seeing the inside of a melting tank that had been drained. You could still feel the heat. It was like entering another planet.
Right time, right place

Hi, I'm Andreas

My role is Team Manager in the logistics division, which involves making sure our products get to our customers in the right place at the right time. We create specialty glass knowing that it’s vital to our customers’ products – their excellence is our ambition.
Contributing to global health

Hi, I'm Neus

As someone who supports the global pharmaceutical packaging side of the business, I’m glad to play a part in overcoming the Covid-19 pandemic. Three out of four vaccine manufacturers rely on our glass vials to safely store and transport their COVID-19 vaccine. This is quite a responsibility – and living up to it is part of our DNA.

Here's proof
