Strategic Action Areas
With our strategy process we derived an overall sustainability commitment and six overarching action areas, that are crucial to our success as an independent holding company in the energy & chemicals sector:
Our Sustainability Commitment
By ensuring outstanding sustainability performance, we aim to create added value for our employees, our shareholders, as well as society, while also protecting the environment. We put our values into action and integrate the principles of sustainable development into our behavior and investment processes.
Responsible Corporate Governance
We preserve our corporate culture and take responsibility for our actions. We maintain transparency vis-à-vis all stakeholders and are committed to fair competition. We take measures to preclude corruption and bribery from the outset.
We believe in controlled growth and long-term partnerships. We safeguard our future success with a healthy mix of risks across our investments, without neglecting ecological and social aspects. We strive to steadily improve our services and offer the highest-quality products and services.
We always strive to minimize our environmental footprint and use resources efficiently. At the same time, we aim to reduce our relative energy consumption as well as water consumption.
We promote equal opportunities and diversity, and invest in the professional development of our employees. We seek to attract qualified, talented employees and retain them long-term.
Occupational Health & Safety
Occupational health & safety have the highest priority in all our activities. We identify and analyze potential risks and take measures to avoid, prevent, control and limit them.
We take responsibility beyond our business activities and support surrounding communities in our five focus areas: environment, education, health, culture & sports, and humanitarian aid. We encourage and support our employees in their volunteer work.
