We can only be successful, if today we set the right points on the track for tomorrow. Far-reaching standards and social developments influence our business considerations, since they are drivers of social values and have an effect on our activities. Regular and open dialogue with our stakeholders and partners helps us to recognize and evaluate trends and developments. We integrate your knowledge, expectations and opinions into our sustainability processes, and the measures that we take are matched to these considerations. We discuss the subject of sustainability with our managers as part of annual reviews of objectives, and we implement these as concrete objectives in the individual business units.
We can only achieve our ambitious objectives with qualified and committed employees. Performance-related structures are a fixed part of our remuneration models at all levels. And since sustainability is structurally enshrined in our business activity, performance agreements also of course include aspects of sustainability. In this way we can ensure, that sustainability is lived systematically and across all departments throughout the working day. This is important to us.
