Reports & Guidelines

Our sustainability efforts are reflected in our reporting. We provide our Sustainability Reports as well as general guidelines, regulations, policies and ISO certificates for you to download.

Transparency is key

We have been detailing our efforts to meet our obligations to society since 1993, focusing initially on environmental topics. In 2003, we began reporting on sustainability topics every two years. Since 2016, we have been publishing a report annually. In 2020, we formulated new, strategic sustainability goals and established the Group Corporate Sustainability unit. As a result, we renamed our “Corporate Responsibility (CR) Report” to “Sustainability Report”.
