- Special on “Resource Efficiency” (pages 14ff.), illustrating our commitment to increase efficiency in the use of natural resources by way of examples – both within our company and in cooperation with our partners in the industry (reduce energy consumption, establish efficient circular economy for packaging, and position more sustainable product solutions on the market)
- Broader reporting on sustainable procurement/sustainability assessments and audits of our suppliers (EcoVadis) (page 36/37)
