An employee event here, a donation there, a bit of green energy – and is that enough for sustainability?
Anyone who thinks that way and sees the handful of fruit trees on their company premises as enough to offset the company’s greenhouse gases does not understand sustainability.
Sustainability means making a serious effort to take only as much from the economic, ecological and social environment for corporate activities as you put back into it in other ways. It is only with dedication to the economy for the common good that we can create future security for our environment and our future. And that is what we strive for – day after day.

In order to make the Earth a livable place for our children, there is no getting around a circular economy following nature’s example. We want to be trailblazers for this necessary shift in our industries.
What does sustainability mean for us in real terms?
We are a family-run foundation company firmly established in the region. With this background, we feel compelled as a company to assume responsibilities that go far beyond our immediate areas of commercial operation.
Our aim is to be sustainable in every respect. When we talk about sustainability today, we mean three main areas: economy, ecology and social responsibility.
We want to manage and measure our impact on the environment and society just as we have long done in other areas. A positive contribution to the common good can also be meaningful and motivating.
