To ensure the ongoing optimization of our business success and sustainable processes, we continually analyze and evaluate our performance as well as our relevant sustainability performance indicators along the value chain. External rating agencies specialized in sustainability also do this. This means that our sustainability activities are transparently measured and evaluated, which not only benefits our company but also our stakeholders.
