Hensoldt Front-Runner in Sustainability Ranking

Company Espouses Pioneering of Technology and Human Potential

Hensoldt is a front-runner in the aerospace and defence industry for sustainability criteria, according to an initial rating by rating, research and data company Sustainalytics for the risk of material financial impact from ESG (environment, social, governance) factors.

Sustainalytics rates companies in the sustainability risks that can have significant consequences for enterprise. Criteria analysed include respect for human rights and supply chain management, as well as environmental and climate change risks.

Specifically, the company achieved an ESG Risk Rating of 18.1 points in the assessment of the current 2021 business year: the scheme runs up to 100 points and Hensoldt is the sole company in the branch  to fall into the ‘Low Risk’ category (10-20 points). In numerous categories – including Product Governance, Human Capital, Bribery & Corruption and Occupational Health & Safety – Hensoldt achieved a score below 10, corresponding to a ‘Negligible Risk’ rating.

This rating confirms our decision to make ESG a strategic priority,” said Thomas Müller, Chairman and CEO of Hensoldt. “We will continue to increase our focus on sustainability, and further advance topics such as the further development of hydrogen technologies and the reduction of our carbon footprint.”

Hensoldt takes its responsibility in its role as a global citizen and sustainable company very seriously, and has set itself the goal of pioneering technologies and human potential that promote the protection of all species worldwide. At the same time, its activities serve the higher purpose of securing the freedom and future of our planet, our nature and our lives. Social commitment is one of our central ethical priorities and supporting the project is thus a matter of great concern to us.
