Sustainability – our Future, our World and our Responsiblity

Tomorrow always starts today – as a globally acting company, we affirm our commitment to social responsibility and are firmly invested in advancing our sustainability strategy, activities and goals for positive change and development.

Corporate Sustainability

We accept responsibility for the total impact our corporate activity has on society as well as the environment. This is solidly anchored in our corporate strategy and is a critical part of our corporate culture in order to contribute to sustainable development for ourselves and future generations. The targeted expansion in ESG areas – Environmental, Social and Governance – can be seen in our sense of responsible, future-oriented thinking and acting. As the basis for long-term and trusting collaboration, we also expect adherence to these basic principles of conduct from our partners and that they adhere to them along the entire supply chain.

Sustainable Development Goals

Our sustainability strategy and activities support the goals for sustainable development from the United Nations (SDGs – Sustainable Development Goals). These goals promote strategies to battle poverty, illness, inequality, injustice and climate change. In doing so we focus on ten goals we can actively influence as a corporate group.
