Automotive supplier DRÄXLMAIER Tunisia won the Best CSR Action 2023 award on Wednesday, May 24, 2023. The award was presented to the company during a ceremony held alongside the second edition of the International CSR Forum, which took place in Hammamet on May 24 and 25. This forum honors Tunisian companies that have excelled in their CSR initiatives.
The Best CSR Action 2023 for sustainable innovation was awarded to the DRÄXLMAIER Group for their revolutionary initiative of implementing the first solar-powered bus stop nationwide in the city of Jemmal, located in the governorate of Monastir, where their most modern factory is situated.
The bus stop, equipped with its own solar systems to generate sustainable energy, provides citizens with a resting place while waiting for the buses, as well as a means to recharge their smartphones through the available USB ports in the seats. The solar system also powers integrated LED lights to automatically illuminate the bus stop at night. This initiative perfectly embodies the Group’s vision of creating a more environmentally friendly and socially responsible future.
In addition to the forum, DRÄXLMAIER Tunisia also received a second trophy for their commitment to implementing CSR practices. This recognition applauds the Group’s continuous efforts to promote sustainable development and exemplary environmental responsibility.
Steffen Juergens, CEO of the DRÄXLMAIER Group, stated, “The two trophies received at the second edition of the International CSR Forum acknowledge our commitment to sustainable development and the positive impact of our CSR initiatives. This recognition also serves as inspiration to continue aiming for excellence and creating a better, more sustainable world for future generations.
By integrating responsible practices into all our activities, we have demonstrated our dedication to environmental sustainability, employee well-being, and support for local communities. We are honored by this recognition and will continue to innovate to inspire other businesses to adopt socially responsible practices. Our success in CSR is a reflection of the hard work and commitment of our team, as well as our strong partnerships with employees and clients.”
Mr. Khalil Laabidi, President of the International Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Forum, commended the efforts made by DRÄXLMAIER Tunisia and their remarkable achievements in the fields of digitization, the use of modern technologies, and sustainable development. These qualities make them a role model company contributing to a sustainable future for all.
The DRÄXLMAIER Group extends heartfelt thanks to the evaluation committee for recognizing their significant CSR efforts in the Best CSR Action 2023 category. They are committed to continuing their efforts in corporate social responsibility, continuously seeking innovative solutions to address current and future challenges of sustainability and mobility.
