The danger lurking in water

Eliminating the worm disease schistosomiasis: that‘s the ultimate goal we‘re pursuing together with our partners in the Global Schistosomiasis Alliance (GSA). The new GSA information campaign entitled "Something in the water" provides information on how dangerous the tropical disease is, how easily it can be transmitted in water, and what the treatment possibilities are. At the heart of the campaign is a short video that shows the dangers that can lurk in the water in some regions.
 

Showing responsibility, building trust

For nearly 350 years, responsibility has been the heart of our entrepreneurial approach and is one of our six values. Our requirements for responsible governance are defined in both our Corporate Responsibility (CR) strategy as well as our Group-wide guidelines.
Our CR strategy is based on our company’s Group strategy. Our entire range of CR activities can be summed up under the term "responsible governance", a concept that informs our day-to-day actions. In addition to this, we have selected three strategic spheres of activity in which we particularly wish to engage. These aim to hone our competitive edge while helping to sustainably secure the company's future.
Health
