The global environmental crisis and increasing social inequality are mutually dependent and amplify each other, posing major challenges for companies. In order to address these changes in an appropriate manner, sustainability must be an elemental part of the corporate strategy.
Sustainability has always been an integral part of our business model
We assume responsibility beyond the company itself, taking our customers, consumers, employees, society and the environment all into account. For us, this means we consider environmental and social conditions whilst working toward efficient production, maintaining a portfolio that helps meet the basic needs of a growing world population.
In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 goals for a better world. These goals aim to reduce poverty, achieve social equity, protect the biosphere and conserve natural resources. As a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact, we actively support the principles of responsible business outlined therein.
