OUR CODE OF CONDUCT

We live and work in the here and now and think beyond our future. We work out realities where other formulate visions.

Thinking ahead

We all bear responsibility not only for today’s society in which we live, but also for the generations to come. This is why we take our entrepreneurial responsibility towards society seriously and are committed to economic, ecological and social issues. Our world is innovative energy storage technologies that supply people with electricity for their mobility, for transporting all kinds of goods and for shaping domestic and professional life.

We want to provide all of our customers in each of our nanoFlowcell industrial sectors with the best technological solution. Through our dedication to all that we do, we are respected as reliable partners who create (added) value.

 

Facing the task

Dependency on fossil fuels and vehicles with internal combustion engines has become one of the greatest challenges of the modern day, and one that must be addressed.

We are aware that mobility and the supply of electricity are fundamentals of life in our society. Therefore, we see our task as making mobility and the supply of electricity safe, sustainable and environmentally compatible.

Our efficient and effective corporate structure, our resolute quality standards and the holistic, systemic and networked way in which we think and act enable us to bring technological innovations to production maturity faster than others. This places us at the forefront of modern flow cell research.

Through our competencies in the field of energy storage and energy conversion, we are improving the lives of people today and generating lasting value for future generations. We are creating technologies that contribute to the protection of health and the environment as well as to a high quality of life and personal safety.

Our nanoFlowcell® technology and the energy carrier bi-ION make mobile energy – and thus electric mobility – not only more environmentally compatible and sustainable, but also safer, more comfortable and more affordable – on land, on water and in the air.

Our understanding of sustainability

The way we live, we think, and we act will change the world. Sustainable and responsible management and social awareness are thus intrinsic to our corporate consciousness.

Based on conviction

Our work has an impact on the future of entire industry sectors. We are therefore working not only on present-day challenges, but are also researching trends and the changes they will bring.

With our products, technologies and services, we are contributing to sustainable and environmentally compatible energy storage and energy transportation. Our nanoFlowcell® technology makes applications safer, more affordable and brings greater efficiency and comfort in their use.

In the automotive industry, as in many other key industries, we are making a significant contribution that benefits society – e.g. a mobile energy source for powering electric motors, a backup energy system for bridging blackouts in the energy network and an energy supply to off-grid homes and communities.

In what we do, we are striving to achieve a balance between economic, ecological and social factors. We are developing new technologies and products, while adhering to and further developing our principles of sustainability, to offer our customers an attractive portfolio that meets their high ecological and social demands.

Corporate responsibility and sustainability will strengthen our company, since we apply these to all functions and at all levels of our company as concrete targets and work instructions. This forces us to continuously rethink standard practice and to focus our corporate actions on the creation of concrete value.

STAKEHOLDER DIALOGUE

Our company stakeholders are our customers, shareholders and employees, society, our partners and suppliers. We deal with all of them with sincerity and fairness.

Transparency

The public perception of our company is shaped to a large extent by our conduct and by the manner in which we present ourselves. We base our conduct on ethical principles and shared values and behave with integrity in our dealings with our shareholders, business partners, colleagues and the general public.

Dialogue with customers and interested members of the public takes place within the scope of wide-ranging activities such as motor shows and trade fairs, congresses, seminars and other events. We also maintain an ongoing dialogue with our business partners through development partnerships, and with the scientific community through joint research projects.

CLIMATE PROTECTION NEEDS INITIATIVES

Our innovative nanoFlowcell® technology enables environmentally compatible and sustainable electric mobility – the consumption of fossil fuels in internal combustion engines can soon be a thing of the past.

The courage to change

Far-reaching protection of our environment is the purpose of our products and technologies and also part of our ecological and social responsibility as a company. We invest in the research and development of technologies that will help eliminate carbon dioxide emissions.

Using our innovative energy technology will promote environmentally compatible and sustainable electric mobility, and the consumption of fossil fuels in internal combustion engines can soon be a thing of the past.

nanoFlowcell® technology aids climate protection outside the automotive sector, too – wherever electric motors replace internal combustion engines and where energy is generated without fossil fuels, but instead using nanoFlowcell® as an energy storage solution.

Climate protection and sustainable enterprise play an important role, not only in the application of our products but also in the production of our technologies. nanoFlowcell® and its complementary bi-ION electrolyte solution are produced without the aid of scarce raw materials. Both are made from materials that are freely available on earth in vast quantities, and that can also be extracted and recycled in an environmentally compatible manner. Moreover, both contain nothing that is in any way damaging to health or the environment.
