Our social responsibility

Managing our company well and taking responsibility for employees, society and the environment is of very important to us. With our solutions, which improve resource efficiency in the construction industry and enable the most careful use of resources, we make an important contribution to climate and environmental protection.

 

The Nemetschek Group is organized as a strategic holding company with operating subsidiaries. With almost 2,900 employees around the world, this holding structure allows the individual brands to act in an entrepreneurial way and entertain close relations with their customers. At the same time, this means that the group is very diverse in terms of culture, market and management approach of the different brands. This structure fosters innovations and is one of our most important strengths. As part of our corporate social responsibility we have identified four topic areas that we in particular would like to advance, across the entire group.

 

Compliance

We pursue a preventative compliance approach and  have a corporate culture in which all employees are  made aware of the issue and receive appropriate training.

Compliance, faire business practices and the prevention of discrimination are of utmost relevance for us. Actual or suspected violations of applicable laws, internal regulations or ethical standards could have negative financial consequences.

They could also have a negative impact on the reputation  of the Nemetschek Group. One of our foremost objectives is therefore ensuring that critical compliance incidents do not happen in the first place.


Environment

We contribute to climate and environmental production thanks to our software applications, which improve resource efficiency in the construction industry and enable the most sparing use of resources possible.

Intact ecosystems are the basis for healthy living and sustainable economic activity. The construction industry is one of the most resource-intensive industries. At the same time, demand for housing is increasing, which means that construction needs to become more efficient and more sustainable.

As a company in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry, we are aware of our environmental responsibility, and we take it seriously accordingly. We contribute to the protection of climate and environment through our solutions, which improve resource efficiency in the construction industry and enable the most sparing use of resources possible.


Customer & Society

We attach particular importance to close, long-term customer relationships and in-depth cooperation in the university sector. This is how the best solutions are produced, with our customers and for the society.

Common goals and priority topics are coordinated at holding company level for this purpose.

The individual brands are responsible for implementing them, as they can act in a more targeted and flexible manner.


Employees

Our employees are our greatest asset. That is why we make it our goal to recruit the best people and keep them at our company for the long term.

This is a key success factor for the entire software industry and particularly applies to companies such as the Nemetschek Group, as the market on which it operates is characterized by a high pace of innovation.

That is why the Group invests about a quarter of its overall revenue in research and development.
