A sustainable
approach

We use the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as our compass. Every day we strive to improve ustainability in our customers’ value chain.

We are furthering our committment to a sustainable future through environmental transparency

Climate neutral by 2030

We are committed to protecting the environment and want to leave a healthy planet to future generations. It’s not enough for us to just reduce our environmental impact – no, we want to go one step further:

We support the UN’s 2030 Agenda and the associated “Sustainable Development Goals” (SDG’s) and have committed ourselves to becoming climate-neutral by 2030.

SDGs, which we actively support.
