HARTING receives Railsponsible CSR Award from European Rail Industry

13 September 2017

Jury impressed by Technology Group’s CSR Management System

The HARTING Technology Group has received Railsponsible CSR Award in Berlin. "The company has been committed to sustainability for over 20 years and is a pioneering force in the field of environmental management. We can rely on HARTING products and services – not least because of their externally audited CSR Management System", is how Uwe Günther - CPO Deutsche Bahn AG and Chairman of Railsponsible - described the Technology Group’s achievements at the award ceremony. In his own speech, Deutsche Bahn Chairman Dr Richard Lutz highlighted the importance of a sustainable supply chain to Deutsche Bahn and congratulated HARTING on its achievement.

In his acceptance speech, HARTING Charmain of the Board Philip Harting remembered his grandfather Wilhelm Harting, who - as a railway engineer himself - would certainly have been very proud of the award. The Charmain of the Board stressed that the Railsponsible CSR Award came as a source of both duty and encouragement. “HARTING is the ideal partner for quality and sustainability”, said Philip Harting.

The selection was made by a cross-disciplinary jury from the European rail vehicle industry sustainability initiative - Railsponsible. The initiative set itself the goal of implementing minimum social and ecological standards and fair competition practices at all stages of the supply chain. Railsponsible members use a common tool to assess their suppliers’ sustainability performance.

The Transportation market is one of most important markets as far as the HARTING Technology Group is concerned. At this year’s 5th Railway Forum Berlin, the Technology Group is exhibiting digitalisation solutions for the rail sector, such as RFID-based wireless temperature monitoring.

HARTING supplies connection technology for the transmission of data, power and signals. Today’s rail vehicles are modular - as a solution to the huge time and economic pressures on operators and manufacturers. HARTING is pursuing the trend with connectors that enable modular construction. Whether it’s braking, train protection, monitoring and passenger information systems or robust drive links – HARTING has the right connectivity solution for every scenario.
