About this Report

This Sustainability Report sets out the sustainability actions and initiatives undertaken by STILL GmbH within the European Economic Area, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) during the 2022 reporting year. STILL GmbH was first founded by Hans Still back in 1920 based on creativity, entrepreneurial spirit and high quality standards, and has since developed into a prominent brand with a strong international reputation. Today the company is part of the KION Group and a leading supplier of internal logistics solutions, with a portfolio that includes forklift trucks, warehouse trucks, networked systems, and support services.

The following report uses a combination of facts and figures to describe the strategies, initiatives, targets, and key performance indicators employed by STILL to manage and measure its actions towards a sustainable future.

Reporting Period and Scope

This STILL Sustainability Report for 2022 covers the 2022 financial year from January 1 to December 31, 2022. Some of the sustainability initiatives described in the report extend beyond this period and this content will continue to be updated. The report covers all STILL consolidated companies based in 22 countries in the EMEA region (operational structure), including their plants and sales and service organizations.

As part of the KION Group, STILL EMEA remained a core brand within the KION ITS EMEA Operating Unit during the 2022 financial year.

As a fully consolidated subsidiary of the KION Group, STILL must be the subject of a separate non-financial report in accordance with Sections 315b and 315c in conjunction with Sections 289c to 289e of the German Commercial Code (HGB). This obligation is fulfilled by the sustainability reporting of the parent group, since the Group non-financial report—based on the material issues identified through the regularly updated Group-wide materiality analysis—forms part of the KION Group Sustainability Report 2022. The limited assurance report produced by an independent auditor for the KION Group Sustainability Report in line with Section 315b of the German Commercial Code (HGB), the EU Taxonomy Regulation (2020/852), and the GRI standards (Global Reporting Initiative) is available on the KION Group website. The KION Group Sustainability Report 2022 also fulfills the requirements of the SASB (Sustainability Accounting Standards Board) as stipulated in the ‘Industrial Machinery & Goods’ sector standard (version 2018-10), as well as the recommendations of the TCFD (Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures).

Recording of Data and Information

The standardized key performance indicators (KPI) used in this report were primarily collected through 36 reporting units. Seven of these units cover individual production and administrative sites—known as plants—while the remaining 29 units cover the sales and service organizations, with multiple sites combined within a single reporting unit in some cases. Any deviations in this data recording are highlighted at the appropriate point, for instance in exceptional cases where not all employees or subsidiaries are included in this report.

The figures in this Sustainability Report have been rounded, so there may be discrepancies between the totals listed for individual entries in the tables and the overall totals indicated, as well as between the figures in the tables and the corresponding analysis within the body text of the report. All percentage adjustments and KPIs have been calculated based on the underlying data.

The data that underpins the key figures in this report was collected across the company using the software program WeSustain.
