We create the greatest possible transparency on the subject of sustainability through our comprehensive reporting in accordance with the guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).
To us, acting holistically means finding common perspectives with our partners that lead to new solutions and result in long-term added value for us all.
We look beyond our own horizons because we cannot be indifferent to what happens outside our immediate reality. New perspectives also lead to new opportunities, which we seize consistently and courageously in order to achieve success for all parties.
We think and act with a view to the long term. Because with everything we do, we take responsibility for the here and now as well as for future generations. This basic understanding guides us in our business decisions to grow constantly and faster than the market.
Because we think holistically, we create space for innovation. This sometimes results in realizations that lead to completely new, unexpected solutions in completely new fields of application. To make this freedom, this investigative spirit, this openness possible – that is our job. This is the only way to come up with minor and major innovations that enable lasting progress.
We consider everything from the beginning to the end of our value chains and enter into partnerships that pursue common goals based on shared values. This holistic view of the ecosystem surrounding us is an integral part of our understanding of sustainable growth.
