We ask EcoVadis, an independent certification institute based in Paris, annually to confirm our engagement in the area of Corporate Social Responsibility (work safety, human rights, fair business practices, sustainable procurement, environment). We received the Gold Award in 2018 and therefore are among the top 2 % of suppliers asessed by EcoVadis in all categories. In our industry we even rank among the top 1% of all evalued suppliers. Our more detailed Sustainability Profile 2018 is also ready for download in our download area.
Also, since 2017 we have been committed to the UN Global Compact corporate responsibility initiative and its principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption. Thus, we are part of the world´s largest corporate responsibilty and sustainability initiative which has the aim to realise the vision of a more sustainable an inclusive global economy.
