Sustainability Report 2022

Certifications and awards

Numerous certifications and awards demonstrate Zeppelin’s success in the environmental, economic, and social areas:

Integrated Management System (IMS) according to ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 50001, and ISO 45001

The Integrated Management System at Zeppelin aims to ensure continuous improvement for the certified areas of occupational health and safety, environmental protection, energy and quality management, and to create uniform standards and a common documentation basis within the scope of the IMS. The Integrated Management System was certified for all German Group companies for the first time in 2019. The recertification took place in 2022 as part of the integrated management system. This successfully confirmed our energy management system (ISO 50001) in Germany and in the national subsidiaries in the Czech Republic, Austria, Poland, the Slovak Republic, Sweden, and Denmark. An external audit also attested to Zeppelin’s high management system standards in Germany in the areas of environmental management (ISO 14001), occupational health and safety (ISO 45001), and quality management (ISO 9001). The certificates can be viewed on the Zeppelin website in the sustainability section.


Certification by the “berufundfamilie audit”

For years, Zeppelin has been committed to providing all employees with an environment that enables them to balance their professional and private lives. This is why Zeppelin has been awarded the “audit berufundfamilie” seal for the second time. The distinction includes Management Holding Zeppelin GmbH and the German companies of the Construction Equipment Central Europe, Rental, Power Systems, and Plant Engineering strategic business units, as well as the Group IT Services strategic management center. The numerous initiatives and measures provided were positively incorporated into the assessment.
