For many years now, sustainability issues such as health, safety, and environmental (HSE) protection, resource efficiency, and full compliance with laws and regulations have been deeply embedded within our company. They determine how we interact with our employees, suppliers, customers, and society in general and have a direct influence on our commercial success.

We aim to factor in the effects of our business practices on the environment and society in our day-to-day activities when making strategic decisions. To this end, we have established corresponding standards and processes in our international corporate structures. We continuously encourage a sense of awareness among our employees for this issue and provide suitable training. Sustainability is therefore a basic principle which is applied in our day-to-day work. Our goal is the continuous global development of our sustainability strategy.
