As a family business, we shoulder responsibility

Since our founding over 50 years ago, we have embraced the concept of sustainable entrepreneurship and made it the basis of our corporate activities. Sustainability, as we implement it, contributes to the further development and growth of our family-owned company and adds value for our customers, our employees and our entire social environment.

For example, did you know...

  • that we have been a climate-neutral* company since 2021 by avoiding, reducing and offsetting our CO2 emissions?
  • that, each year we designate 20,000 sqm of company land at PERI sites to be in harmony with nature in order to promote valuable biodiversity?
  • that, every year, we build a school in a developing country and have even developed our own concrete block for its construction?
  • that there are many other initiatives and projects about which we provide information in our sustainability report?

(*related to our Scope 1 and 2 emissions).

    "With everything that we have planned for the coming years, we will proceed in a way that befits PERI as a familyowned company. We work on clearly defined topics with clear goals that are firmly anchored in our medium- and long-term corporate strategy and consider all of our stakeholders."

Building Sustainability: our fields of action.

We have identified five fields of action to advance the topic of sustainability at PERI. We are convinced that these fields are relevant for PERI, for our customers, for our employees and for our social environment.

  • Action field products
    We promote solutions for the circular economy and sustainable construction through new products, technologies, and life cycle analyses.
  • Action field environment
    We strive for climate neutrality and promote biodiversity on our company grounds
  • Action field Supply chain
    Supply chain
    We are committed to high social and environmental standards in our supply chain and promote environmentally friendly logistics.
  • Action field people
    We want to be an attractive and long-term employer that promotes diversity and is committed to society.
  • Action field Governance
    We record our sustainability performance systematically and report transparently at regular intervals.

Transparency is important to us!

With our Sustainability Report, we show how we approach the topic of sustainability at PERI. We report openly and transparently on where we stand today, in which areas we can and must improve and which concrete sustainability goals PERI has set itself for the medium and long term.

Declaration of Principles Human Rights

Thinking sustainably and acting responsibly is part of PERI's corporate identity. In addition to economic interests, we systematically consider environmental, social and societal aspects in our operational decisions and processes.

Therefore, we pay attention to the observance of human rights in all areas of our business activities worldwide. With the declaration of principles that applies to the entire PERI Group, we assume our responsibility as one of the world's largest manufacturers of formwork and scaffolding systems.

Our Code of Conduct defines the framework for action for all employees and business partners and is supplemented by our whistleblower system, which is also available for information on the Supply Chain Duty of Care Act.

The rules of procedure for the whistleblower system (LkSG/ Lieferkettensorgfaltspflichtengesetz) can be found here:
