Driving a sustainable business operation

WE CREATE SUSTAINABILITY FOR
OUR EMPLOYEES, CUSTOMERS,
AND THE ENVIRONMENT

By 2030, 1.3 billion new people will join the consumer class1 putting supply chains under constant pressure to deliver more, better, and faster. To achieve global climate goals, provide healthy workplaces for employees, and meet the growing demand for consumer goods, all companies in the supply chain must run a sustainable business. Warehouse management plays a crucial part in this process.   
Our mission is to enable global companies to operate a sustainable and efficient supply chain that delivers a superior customer experience through a long-term partnership.

The three foundations
of our sustainability program

Based on the UN 2030 Agenda and the 17 Global Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), our sustainability program focuses on three areas: sustainability for our employees, customers, and the environment.

Sustainability for our employees  

As a knowledge-based organization, the talent and skills of our employees are essential to our success. Providing them with a long-term career path is one of the main pillars of our sustainable operation. We aim to become the most attractive workplace in the supply chain industry by 2028. To cover all aspects of this journey, we have determined four dimensions of sustainability for our employees:

A diverse and equal workplace

A key target for 2028: Have women represent 50% of newly recruited employees.

A workplace for individual growth  

A key target for 2028:  Reach a 50-point eNPS (Employee Net Promoter Score).

A safe and healthy workplace 

A key target for 2028: Stay 5 points above the industry benchmark with our Leadership Index.

An engaging workplace  

A key target for 2028: Have 95% percent of employees complete PuLCe surveys.

Sustainability for our customers  

We support our customers´ long-term financial growth and goals through innovation and lasting partnerships. We invest 13% of our annual revenue in research and development and are committed to working closely with our customers in creating cutting-edge WMS solutions. From 2022, we are tracking KPIs such as customer churn and satisfaction to measure the customer perspective better.

Sustainability for the environment  

As a software development company, we use smart algorithms to create a high impact. Astro WMS® functionalities support environmentally friendly warehouse operations in many ways, e.g., by choosing the right packaging, improving fill rates in trucks, and driving the most optimal route in the warehouse when picking, thus reducing our customers´ carbon footprint. As for our corporate operations, we use 100% renewable energy in all our offices and aim to ensure sustainable procurement, travel, and waste management.

Together we get there
- meet our Sustainability Ambassadors

Even the best sustainability program will stay on paper without community engagement. Ultimately, people drive change. That is why we selected Sustainability Ambassadors from the organization who raise awareness of the focus areas, develop guidelines, search for best practices, launch initiatives and monitor progress. Discover how they approach sustainability through their work in the program.
