Assuming responsibility

In an increasingly complex world, in which ecological and social concerns have become just as relevant as the challenge of economics, adopting a sustainable approach to business activities is essential to achieve long-term success.

As risk and opportunity become more diverse, Sto has developed a coherent sustainability strategy to manage new challenges consistently and successfully. Our strategy is founded on principles that combine a sound basis for continuous, earnings-oriented growth with making a social contribution.

The Sto "sustainability compass" is a methodology we have developed to control the dynamic and complex processes of our sustainability strategy and to find effective solutions as challenges emerge. It encompasses four dimensions: ecology, economy, society and well-being.

Sto has deliberately supplemented the classical approach to sustainability to include well-being. We believe that human factors, such as taste, aesthetic appeal and comfort play an essential role, particularly in the design of facades and interiors.

    Sto's core business is the manufacture of facade systems that contribute to significant savings in energy use through the effective insulation of buildings. Sto's energy efficient façade systems make a significant contribution to climate and environment protection.


    They also improve the living comfort and quality of buildings. As risk as well as opportunity becomes more diverse, Sto has developed a coherent sustainability strategy to manage new challenges consistently and successfully. Our strategy is founded on principles that combine a sound basis for continuous, earnings-oriented growth with making a social contribution.

  • Economy

    The Sto Group has positioned itself in the market for building coatings as a supplier of quality products and systems with a high degree of technological expertise and a comprehensive range of services.

    The range is targeted at professional applicators such as painters, plasterers, and building contractors, as well as architects and planning offices, who are supported locally by means of a direct distribution system.

    ISO-Certification
    We have established a comprehensive quality and environmental management system in the production area, whereby all production locations are recorded and audited internally. 21 of the 27 production sites in total are additionally certified externally in accordance with international standards such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001, or SHARP in order to document the high level of quality.

  • Society

    Commitment to social issues forms part of a long-standing tradition at Sto. We assume responsibility towards our employees as well as the places we work in and the people we work with. Sto participates in the United Nations Global Compact, a worldwide pact between more than 8,000 companies and the UN.

    The aim is to create a sustainable and inclusive global economy that delivers lasting benefits to people, communities and markets. To achieve this goal, the participating companies operate in ways that, at a minimum, meet fundamental responsibilities in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.

    Sto Foundation
    Alongside fundraising projects selected by the company, the non-profit Sto Foundation is the cornerstone of our charitable activities. Social responsibility for Sto does not end at the factory gates and Sto supports many of our employees as they commit themselves to social projects outside of work.
