Sustainable value creation at Fronius

Value creation

Value creation chain at Fronius

At Fronius, we take a holistic view of the value chain: starting with the extraction of raw materials, through the refinement stages, all the way to the end user. This is where responsibility lies and where we actively operate mechanisms, organizational units and processes in order to supply customers and markets with products and services in a sustainable manner.

Upstream value creation

To manufacture our products, we require a wide range of materials, most of which we source from Europe. We work closely with our suppliers to ensure constant compliance with our strict guidelines for environmental and social standards. This enables us to continuously develop both new and existing suppliers on the basis of our established supplier management system. And to do so with success: more than half of our major suppliers have already implemented certified management systems such as ISO 14001.


Internal value creation through logistics at Fronius International

Internal value creation

We consolidate our manufacturing activities in Austria and the Czech Republic and we are therefore able to guarantee compliance with the highest social, environmental, and quality standards. Furthermore, R&D and the production department work hand in hand at Fronius. This increases effectiveness and reduces the time from the initial idea to the start of production. A safe working environment, the sustainable organization of all our sites, and respectful cooperation on an equal footing positively complement our internal value creation approach. 

 

Downstream value creation

Every Fronius product around the world starts its journey in Sattledt, Upper Austria. By pooling our strengths here, we are able to optimally coordinate the supply of all global markets and guarantee it with the help of efficient and sustainable logistics and transport processes. Furthermore, a global network of local subsidiaries and partners allows for targeted, decentralized logistics. We avoid transport by air altogether wherever possible.
