In times of demographic transformation, a shortage of resources and advancing climate change, the requirements for sustainable involvement of companies are rising. At Piepenbrock, sustainable thinking and action have already been firmly rooted in the philosophy and corporate culture and anchored in the company's mission statements for three decades.

We assume responsibility – for our employees and customers, for society and the environment – making us one of the forerunners of our industry sector. We participate in a large number of charitable events, support social and ecological projects and organise our own sustainable campaigns. In doing so, we align our commitment at all times to the three columns of sustainability: ecology, social issues and economy.
