Social responsibility

Corporate responsibility towards society has always been a central part of Girsberger's company philosophy. For us, corporate social responsibility stands for social justice, conservation of resources and manufacturing under fair conditions.

Procurement practice – supplier assessment

Whenever possible and economically viable, we source components that we do not manufacture ourselves from suppliers or producers within a radius of 600 km from our production sites. In this way, we ensure that our products are manufactured in a socially and ecologically responsible manner and that they meet our own and our customers' demands for quality and sustainability.

It is in our own interests for our supplier assessments to include not only measurable factors such as quality and compliance with delivery schedules, but also other factors such as flexibility, complaints management, communication and environmental aspects. An environmental relevance analysis of our suppliers documents the presence of structures for systematic improvement and further development. In our procurement activities, Girsberger naturally also endeavours to continually improve resource and energy efficiency, avoid currency risks, and above all cause less harm to the environment by ensuring short transportation distances.

Transparent and sustainable supply chain

To promote transparency in our sustainable supply chain and the non-financial values of corporate social responsibility (CSR), we underwent the EcoVadis rating involving CSR-based assessments. Girsberger scored 67 out of 100 possible points and was awarded the 2024 EcoVadis Silver Medal. In the overall ratings, this placed Girsberger among the top 7 % of EcoVadis-certified companies in furniture manufacturing. In terms of sustainable procurement, Girsberger even ranks among the top 5 % of furniture-manufacturing companies certified by EcoVadis.
