Our commitment for a better future

Sustainability is firmly anchored in our company's core values. We are convinced that we have a positive impact on the environment, people and the economy and are committed to striking a balance between ecological, social and economic responsibility.

UN Global Compact

The United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) encourages and supports companies worldwide to commit to more sustainable and responsible business practices. Based on ten universal principles and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the areas of human rights, labor standards, environmental protection and anti-corruption, the UNGC provides a framework for aligning business activities with the values of the United Nations and making a positive contribution to global development.

 17 Sustainable Development Goals

Our company is proud to support the UNGC and actively implement its principles. We integrate them into our business strategy and daily operations to ensure a positive impact on society and the environment. We strive to support the UNGC's global goals for sustainable development and to establish our company as a driving force for social progress and environmental protection.

Our sustainability strategy is an integral part of our management system and the company's overall strategy. By regularly reviewing and updating it, we ensure that it is continuously adapted to our long-term corporate goals and the changing external requirements of our stakeholders. The strategy is focused on three central areas of action.
