Applying values – the foundation of sustainability

Sustainability is becoming more and more important for businesses. These days, responsible management of natural resources and forward-looking HR policies are just as central for our business as the debate over the impact of technological developments on society.

Orienting our business operations toward our values and principles is the foundation for our sustainable business success. At Louisenthal, we are now intensifying the focus on our employees, the environment, security and society in our activities. A targeted exchange with our stakeholders helps us to meet social expectations.


Louisenthal documents social responsibility

As a subsidiary of Giesecke+Devrient Currency Technology GmbH, we have been participating in the UN Global Compact, a voluntary business initiative of the United Nations, since September 2010. This global initiative aims to align globalization with social, environmental, and economic principles.

Participating companies commit to aligning their business activities with core principles in the areas of human rights, labor, the environment, and anti-corruption. As a participant, we publish an annual report on our activities and progress in the above areas together with G+D.
