To keep improving our sustainability performance and more strategically direct our efforts in the areas that are material for us, Marquard & Bahls started to develop a comprehensive sustainability strategy in 2016.
This strategy is based on our sustainability commitment and six strategic action areas. The following six overarching strategic action areas determine our success:
To anchor the afore mentioned six key strategic issues in our global activities we use various instruments and measures. To firmly establish responsibility for environmental and social issues at the highest level, the relevant principles are reflected in our HSSE Policy. We develop our internal policies and standards based on internationally recognized principles of responsible entrepreneurship. The basis for this is our Code of Conduct, which is binding for all employees. Other tools include internal audits, the implementation of certified management systems, and a statistical monitoring of key performance indicators (Key Performance Indicators – KPIs).
