Sustainability Report

In our current Sustainability Report we give insights into our advanced sustainability strategy and transparently document the company’s sustainability-related achievements in detail.




Our sustainability reporting is aligned to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards and the 10 principles of the U.N. Global Compact (UNGC). For 2020 our sustainability reporting is also aligned with the requirements from SASB (Sustainability Accounting Standards Board) and TCFD (Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures). Clear nonfinancial indicators help us measure our performance.
