CORPORATE SUSTAINABILITY

Corporate sustainability is a major priority at Österreichische Post AG. Against this background, environmental and social factors play a decisive role for our corporate strategy and governance.

One thing is for certain at Österreichische Post: sustainable aspects need to be combined to make a corporation ready for the future and ensure long-term success.

Our sustainable goals can be broken down as follows:

Economy: improving our sustainable business model with a focus on clients and innovations

Environment: resources & climate protection

Employees: promoting our corporate and leadership culture and protecting our employees' health and safety

Society: ensuring the provision of services and shaping the necessary conditions and promoting social commitment

 
Digitalization, competitive pressure, and global trade define our markets. These trends are major challenges for us at Österreichische Post as well as for the entire logistics industry. We see these developments as an opportunity to improve and evolve.
We know our clients' wishes and expectations, which is essential for any company that wants to offer innovative and customer-oriented service and to ultimately be financially successful in the long term.
This is very much in line with our mission, "Our clients are the centre of attention", which is all about focusing on flexible delivery concepts designed to offer maximum ease of use, service quality, and online solutions. These include services such as the Österreichische Post app that clients can use to forward parcels to a postal branch of their choice or to have e-letters delivered.

 
Österreichische Post has been a member of the UN Global Compact since 2007. Its principles regarding human rights, labour laws, environmental protection, and anti-corruption guide all our goals and actions.  Österreichische Post is also committed to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations, which have been in effect since January 2017, and has incorporated these goals into its sustainability strategy.
