Annual CSR-Report 2023
Welcome to Inspirion GmbH’s Sustainability Report, covering the period 2022 and 2023. Our second and expanded CSR report that gives you an insight into our progress, innovations and general approach to sustainability at Inspirion GmbH.

Our strategy is proactive, aiming to anticipate rather than just respond to new regulations. We’re in the midst of implementing various indicators to monitor and develop our sustainability goals, adhering to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards, participating in the EcoVadis CSR assessment, and supporting the UN Global Compact Framework. The indicators in this report primarily reflect our German headquarters, but plans are underway to expand their application to our subsidiaries in Europe and Asia. The year 2023 saw us further committing resources to sustainability, focusing on obtaining reliable data, a venture that is starting to yield results in this report and will be increasingly critical in the years ahead.
