As the employer, my contribution towards the sustainable economic success of LKW WALTER is to attract the best talents from across Europe to our company. We started as a small, family-run company - today we are a large family, whose task is to achieve a sustainable and long-lasting contribution to economic well-being and social cohesion, in unity with our environment and with nature.
Excerpt from a speech by our company founder
We adhere to our social responsibility and maintain an open dialogue with customers, suppliers, authorities and society. We support humanitarian relief projects as well as the social initiative of our colleagues, in the form of financial benefits, donations in kind as well as personal assignments. In particular, we are involved with the improvement of teaching projects in schools and universities.
We maintain a co-operative management style giving our employees a large amount of personal responsibility and we reward their personal commitment through performance related pay. Furthermore, we offer a fascinating international work surrounding, which offers a wide range of perspectives and allows both personal and job-related development. In the business we promote a healthy way of life and strongly support sporting and fitness activities on a wider basis.
Today our extensive environmental activies are rated as being "exemplary in the transport sector" by external auditors.
Included in our on-site environmental activity:
We pay particular attention to external environmental measures:
By shifting from road transport to "rail" and "Short Sea Shipping" carriers, we considerably reduce polluting emissions, in particular greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide. In 2019 LKW WALTER carried out more than 430,000 intermodal journeys throughout Europe. This activity alone reduced CO2 emissions by approximately 362,000 tonnes.
