Sustainability as a social responsibility has long since established itself as an internationally recognized guiding principle. Even for industries that are not automatically associated with resource conservation, sustainability has become a serious factor in corporate positioning.
The “new” sustainability debatet is not just about ecological aspects, but rather also about economic and ethical issues. The current economic and social changes require a rethink in order to be able to survive on the market in the future. It is already clear that customers are increasingly making demands of their suppliers in this direction and that there is growing demand for the implementation of ecological and social aspects in corporate management.
We are also facing up to this responsibility. As a necessary and forward-looking step, we already established the topic of sustainability in our corporate philosophy in 2013.
