We want to make our progress in sustainability management visible and above all measurable. For this reason, we continually review our activities using sustainability performance indicators to record successes as well as identify potential for further improvement. Regular reviews by external rating agencies give us and our stakeholders the opportunity to evaluate past performance and improvements objectively and transparently.
