The starting situation at Lohmann & Rauscher

  • null
    Lohmann & Rauscher (L&R) is a leading international supplier of future-oriented medical and hygiene products
  • null
    2018 revenue volume: More than 650 million euros in 49 Group companies
  • null
    More than 5,000 employees, 130 sales partners and 1,200 suppliers worldwide
  • null
    Represented in all major markets and on all five continents
  • null
    Corporate responsibility or sustainability enjoys strategic importance

At L&R the focus is on people and the care for their health. With the claim People.Health.Care. three independent areas are focused, which together stand for the vision and the values of L&R, problem solvers are able to help people worldwide.

L&R is aware of its responsibility to society. That is why they are committed to sustainable corporate development, environmental protection and social responsibility. And new measures are constantly being taken to remain a reliable partner for customers, business partners and employees in the future. The successes in this area are reflected in the numerous certificates, awards and ratings that L&R receives every year.

In order to anchor strategic steps towards economic, ecological and social sustainability even better in the company in the future, “Corporate Sustainability” was established as an independent area of responsibility.

The challenge
  • null
    Growing pressure from customers & suppliers to visibly assume corporate responsibility
  • null
    Lack of location to have all CSR data at on place
  • null
    Frequent requests from departments like Sales, for certificates like ISO, EcoVadis, etc.
  • null
    High manual effort to create internal reports/presentations for CSR performance measurement
  • null
    Tenders and their sustainability requirements can often only be met with a great deal of manual effort

The pressure from customers and other stakeholders to assume responsibility in social, ecological and economic matters has also noticeably increased for L&R. Today, corporate responsibility and its transparency are more relevant to business than ever – not least for tenders.

In the past, the sustainability officer at the time was almost exclusively occupied with audits, certifications and evaluations. In addition, she was responsible for preparing CSR information and communicating it to the company.

A solution should therefore be found that provides a central data hub that automates as much of the manual work as possible.

The solution
  • null
    CSR data management in one place with VERSO
  • null
    Fast and flexible information availability
  • null
    Simple, intuitive operation
  • null
    Significant time savings in the sustainability department
  • null
    Fast support – online and by phone
  • null
    Reader-friendly online profile (internal website) for cross-departmental use

In order to make CSR successes accessible to all colleagues and partners, there is now a central location where every employee can quickly gain an overview: The sustainability database provided by VERSO.

The contents available online not only support the basic idea of a paperless office and enable transparent stakeholder communication that is always available, they also offer real added value for tenders, tenders or rating agencies.

In addition, the CSR data can be graphically presented at the touch of a button at any time to suit the target group, for example for management reporting. Jasmine Schweitzer, Corporate Sustainability Manager, saves a lot of time and nerves today, which she now uses for further content development.

Whenever she or her colleagues encounter limits, VERSO’s German-speaking support team is available at all times via all common communication channels.
