As a core part of our entrepreneurial responsibility, sustainability has been a concern of ours for a long time.
We’ve taken a close interest in sustainability issues in a variety of different ways for a number of years. Developments in and expressions of sustainability, as with most important topics in the world, are the result of a continuous process. What began as a call for environmental protection is now an effort along multiple fronts to preserve our planet for future generations. We show some of the milestones along this journey on the following page. What they all have in common is the fact that they’ve emerged from a combination of multifaceted aspects and the circumstances of their respective era. They’re achievements or events that act as signposts for this trip into the future as a logical – and sometimes absolutely illogical – consequence of our actions. When you look at the path from a bird’s eye perspective, we think you’ll agree with us. Other milestones can only come about from responsible and far-sighted interaction between politics, society, science and business. Sustainability may therefore well be a key issue for us for a long time to come.
