The award is reserved exclusively for the top five per cent of companies assessed across the world. The Liebherr division, responsible for business activities in the field of crawler, duty cycle, and maritime cranes, as well as piling and drilling rigs, landed itself in the top one per cent of companies rated in its own industry.

“Being awarded the EcoVadis gold medal once again is a confirmation of our efforts to further improve in terms of sustainability and social responsibility,” said Tatjana Grissemann-Peter, Manager of Corporate Responsibility at Liebherr-MCCtec GmbH. “We are proud of our progress and remain committed to developing innovative solutions to make a positive contribution to our society and the environment.”


According to Liebherr, significant improvements and initiatives in sustainability were implemented in 2023. These include the introduction or expansion of ISO certifications in the areas of occupational safety and information security at Liebherr-MCCtec’s four European sites and the definition of new quantitative targets in the Corporate Responsibility policy. New targets have been defined up to 2030, including certification to the highest standards for quality, occupational safety, energy, environment, and information security.

Additionally, as part of its commitment to the UN Global Compact, Liebherr-MCCtec published an extended report in 2023 detailing information on governance, human rights, labour standards, environmental protection, and anti-corruption. The division also developed a greenhouse gas management and decarbonisation strategy by 2030 based on the identification of various CO2 reduction measures with corresponding targets.

According to Liebherr, In the production plants, this includes converting the heating systems, electrifying the vehicle fleet, and using alternative fuels such as HVO for testing the cranes produced. For example, 95 per cent of the electricity used at all four production plants is already generated from renewable energies.
