Strategy and management

The Schaeffler Group is a publicly listed family business with a strong foundation in its values that shape its entrepreneurial activity and corporate culture. Economic success, long-term orientation, and awareness of the social and environmental concerns of its own business are traditionally closely interlinked in the Schaeffler Group.

The new Roadmap 2025 defines three strategic priorities – innovation, agility, and efficiency. The company has established management structures and processes to implement these priorities and thus to ensure that all business activities along the entire value chain are legally compliant and meet highest ethical standards.

With its activities in the action field Strategy and Management, the Schaeffler Group contributes to the Sustainable Development Goals () “Decent work and economic growth” (SDG 8) and “Partnerships for the goals” (SDG 17). The new corporate strategy aims to reconcile social and environmental requirements with all company activities. The “Sustainability & Engagement” subprogram ensures consistent implementation.
