ESG in focus

We make our sustainability efforts measurable. We regularly review our sustainability progress and improve our ESG strategy. In dialog with our stakeholders, we have set ourselves clear targets for the future. The targets we set ourselves cover the aspects that are essential for us and our business model and which we are able to realize. In this way, we make our sustainability efforts visible and verifiable.
