Goals 2020

We are committed to expanding our position as role model
for sustainability in our industry by 2020.

 

 

In 2011 we started the company-wide SCORE sustainability program which is based on our entrepreneurial tradition of managing resources carefully.

The self-imposed goal of becoming the role model for sustainability in our industry was achieved by the end of 2020. 

The sustainability strategy for 2020 was developed as part of a comprehensive stakeholder-dialogue. The focus areas of sourcing, marketing, logistics, resources and climate, employees and society defined by the end of 2016 were confirmed. The concrete goals and measures to be achieved by the end of 2020 were then defined for the individual focus areas.

We set ourselves the goal of further expanding our position as role model for sustainability in the industry by the end of 2020. We view sustainability as an integral component of long-term corporate success. Therefore, we are not content to rest on what has been achieved, but instead want to use this as the basis for intensifying our avtivities further.
