Our understanding of sustainability
We believe that society is facing unprecedented economic, environmental, social and cultural challenges. But we are also convinced that sustainability is the key to transforming these challenges into opportunities. We see these as both a responsibility and an opportunity to shape our business in harmony with society’s requirements and those of our customers, employees, investors and partners.
In this Corporate Responsibility Progress Report 2016/17 we report about our key performance indicators and target progress, as well as our progress report on the United Nations Global Compact Principles. In the publication Corporate Responsibility 2016/17 Compact we additionally use examples to illustrate how sustainability is embedded in our day-to-day business activities.
