Economic. Environmental. Social.

Grenzebach is committed to all three pillars of corporate sustainability

We understand sustainability as a fundamental philosophy that guides the actions of every employee daily. That’s why, as a global automation specialist, we concentrate on forward-looking solutions that conserve resources on the one hand and increase our customers’ efficiency on the other. Our focus is always on leaving future generations an intact ecological and economic environment through the implementation of responsible approaches and operations.

This sustainable corporate philosophy is also reflected in our Grenzebach DNA. We take active steps to protect the environment and combat climate change, foster fair and responsible business relationships, and support as well as actively participate in social and volunteer projects.

“As an independent family-owned company, Grenzebach has always stood for helping people and companies to achieve their goals in a spirit of partnership and for the long term. This is only possible with effective and active efforts to protect the environment, combat climate change, and enhance occupational health and safety. As a company-wide objective and fundamental underlying conviction, a sustainability mindset and sustainable operations are the cornerstones of our corporate philosophy.”

How we proactively protect the environment and combat climate change


To preserve the livelihood for future generations, the Grenzebach Group’s collective goal is to reconcile economic and environmental approaches and activities, both globally and locally.

We promote the use of green technologies right from the development stage, rely on alternative energy sources, and reduce our carbon footprint by, for example, eliminating unnecessary travel and gradually converting our vehicle fleet.

We are committed to sustainable processes, systems, and solutions that minimize our customers’ energy consumption and reduce emissions.

We take environmental responsibility. For you. For ourselves. Learn more about how Grenzebach is making environmental protection and climate change mitigation sustainable:


For our employees. For society. For our region.


As a family-owned company, we particularly value our close relationship with our employees and the region. Corporate social responsibility – to the benefit of our employees as well as society – has been part of Grenzebach’s self-image since the company was founded.

That’s why the occupational health and safety of our employees is extremely important to us and why we promote sustainable health management. We do our best to offer safe and ergonomic workstations and motivate our employees to proactively take care of their health.

We actively serve society, particularly in the regions where our sites are located – such as by donating to local charities or through our “Grenzebach hilft” project with vocational trainees.

Grenzebach’s heart beats for the local community. We demonstrate our strong commitment to society – even beyond the boundaries of the company:
