Austria – Novomatic recertified by Leitbetriebe Austria for high level of innovation and sustainabilityBy Phil - 1 December 2023
Novomatic has once again been successfully recertified by the independent platform ‘Leitbetriebe Austria’ for its high level of innovation and sustainable business strategy throughout the group.
Certification as a leading company is awarded to companies that, in addition to economic success, also show a willingness to assume economic, ecological and social responsibility. Novomatic can continue a long-standing tradition with the successful certification by the independent, cross-industry excellence platform ‘Leitbetriebe Austria’. Sustainability-oriented goals such as innovation, growth and market position are just as decisive for the evaluation as employee development. With its global headquarters in Gumpoldskirchen, Novomatic is a major taxpayer in the country and, in addition to its role as one of Lower Austria’s largest employers, also contributes to Austria as a sustainable business location.
“We are firmly convinced that success can only be achieved by taking responsibility, and we bear this responsibility in particular towards our more than 24,500 employees worldwide. The renewed certification of Novomatic as a ‘leading company in Austria’ is not only a valuable confirmation of the company’s great commitment as an employer, but also of sustainable corporate management,” emphasized Novomatic board members Dipl.-Ing. Ryszard Presch and Mag. Johannes Gratzl on the occasion of the certificate presentation at the headquarters.
In addition, Monica Rintersbacher, Managing Director of Leitbetriebe Austria, emphasizes: “Novomatic has been meeting the qualification criteria for more than 10 years and – not surprisingly to me – has once again been confirmed as a leading company. The company takes its role model effect very seriously and is therefore indispensable as a driver of innovation and a major employer in the local economy.”
Novomatic’s strong commitment to ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) has already received numerous international awards. The Group’s recent industry victory in the PwC ESG Ranking 2023 proves that sustainability is a top priority.
