Caring for future generations.
We shape the world in which our children will live – we have been aware of this responsibility for society and the environment as a family business since the beginning of our business. Sustainable action is an important part of our company policy. Not for nothing is sustainability one of our three core company values!
In our recently published Future Report, our engagement is clearly visible in numerous measures, which are implemented in all our company areas and have positive effects on the entire value chain.
Example: Equal Opportunities
We are rightly proud that 50% of our Top Management are female. And we are also proud of the fact that we already have many young and upcoming female managers in our ranks. We support women in a wide variety of life situations - during apprenticeships, training in technical professions, family leave and their many career steps within the company.

2021 in focus
As an industry leader, sustainability aspects are always at the forefront of our thinking. Whether it's in our products, our production processes or our employees. We want to continue to live up to our pioneering role in the future - 2021 is therefore fully dedicated to sustainability with many projects already in the pipeline.
Training & Further Education
We create opportunities for development and involve employees in the company's activities. Training and further education in both the technical and personal areas, as well as lifelong learning are lived daily at MACO. Whether it is promoting employees, providing new qualifications or training apprentices in the creative apprentice workshop according to our own educational plan.
Health & Safety
Only those who are physically and psychologically healthy also perform well. And every workplace accident is one too many. For the health and safety of our employees, we have launched various initiatives such as free health checks, exercise programs, medical or occupational psychological counseling by external experts, or our Safety First program. A BS OHSAS 18001 certified management system ensures a uniformly high level of occupational safety across all MACO sites.
Diversity is an enormous strength that we actively use at MACO. This is because different perspectives open up creative and novel solutions. We want to create a working environment in which employees can reach their full potential. Gender, origin or age are not an obstacle, but a valuable enrichment for daily work, projects and innovation processes.
Information & Exchange
We know that informed employees are more motivated, actively develop ideas and thus contribute to problem solving. Our goal is to have open dialogue and regular exchange with managers, workers, employees and apprentices.This is achieved through regular updates by email and posters, our own employee magazine, personal management information and much more.
With the annual employee survey introduced in 2019 and in the regular employee reviews, all employees can also contribute suggestions and criticism. Employees from all areas of the company and all levels of the hierarchy are also involved in organisational development at MACO and thus help shape our joint future.
Climate and environmental protection means using resources efficiently and avoiding climate-damaging pollution. Following this credo, MACO has been reducing its ecological footprint with specific environmental protection projects for years.
We take responsibility and not only with regard to the careful handling of energy and other resources, but above all regarding our own products. Buildings today generate 40 percent of CO2 emissions in Europe. Improving their energy efficiency is therefore essential for a sustainable, liveable future. Our product solutions make an important contribution to this. In addition, MACO products boast longevity because the hardware industry is not a disposable business.
