We attach great importance to transparency and sustainable management with regard to the natural resources we require for our business activities. We measure and record relevant data. They provide us with information on where we can improve further. We want to use resources even more efficiently and promote environmentally friendly practices to reduce our ecological footprint. To achieve this, we are constantly rethinking tried-and-tested practices. We are on our way and are taking it one step at a time.
Our corporate culture is based on strong values, humanity, integrity and sustainable corporate governance. Governance aspects such as transparency, ethics, compliance, independence of the Board of Management, and compliance with laws and regulations play a central role here. Sound governance is crucial for sustainable business and responsible management.

With our first Sustainability Report for the reporting year 2022, we have embarked on a new path of transparency. We follow the 20 criteria of the German Sustainability Code (DNK) and the standards of the Global Reporting Initiative. The Sustainability Code is the leading reporting standard in Germany, bringing comprehensibility and comparability to corporate reporting. For us, this is just the beginning - an up-to-date picture of the Group on its way to a future fit following generations.Download Sustainability Report 2023
