We are measuring our successes on the road to sustainability

We are measuring our successes on the road to sustainability

Sustainability will change all the aspects of our daily life, our economic activities, and our society. If we want to safeguard the basis of life for present and future generations, sustainability is essential. It offers abundant opportunities — for technological innovation and new forms of collaboration. All of these aspects make our report vivid and tangible. That’s because what ultimately counts are our deeds.

Results are what matters. Projects are successful, if they reach their goals — reducing emissions, converting gray energy into green energy, and making the work environment safe and fair. The important thing is the outcome.

Accordingly, we have conducted an initial review, and now we know where we stand and where we will act to ensure a more sustainable future and intensify our efforts. 

In this report we transparently present initial facts and figures. We describe our goals — and the extent to which we have achieved them. We also show where we need to improve. We are already orienting ourselves toward the requirements of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)

We are convinced that a comparison according to internationally recognized standards clearly shows how we are shaping a better, more sustainable future and what our path toward it looks like. In addition, the figures clearly show where there is the most room for improvement — within our company and also in other companies and groups in society. 

That’s why from now on we will continuously measure all the steps of our journey toward a sustainable company in a manner that is transparent and traceable. And we will repeatedly adapt our activities in line with these results.
