Every day we work with our customers to improve their energy efficiency and help them meet their sustainability goals. GESTRA's 120-year legacy has always focused on using German precision engineering to maximise operational reliability, as sustainably as possible.
Being part of the Spirax-Sarco Engineering group means we are working together to achieve the goals set out in the One Planet: Engineering with Purpose Strategy.
Its six key initiatives define our commitment to making change happen.
GESTRA holds a Gold rating for sustainable procurement from EcoVadis, the world’s most trusted business sustainability rating organization. That top 5% score reflects our commitment to our colleagues and customers to focus on sustainability as a core principle.
EcoVadis ranks organisations according to strict criteria across environmental, social and ethical risks. A further 21 corporate social responsibility benchmarks are calculated over four themes: environment, labour and human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement.
