Sustainability assessments

Sustainability and corporate performance 

Sustainability assessments contribute to company positioning.

In addition to our own sustainability reports, we use two external platforms to evaluate our sustainability management: SEDEX and EcoVadis

Both tools enable comprehensive analysis of our sustainability practices. The findings from the assessments help us to continuously evaluate our sustainability practices and identify improvements and areas of potential. The results are displayed in a transparent way. 


Transparency, data exchange and auditing

SEDEX (Supplier Ethical Data Exchange) helps companies to act ethically and responsibly by assessing and auditing their commitment to sustainability. SEDEX’s review and monitoring of our performance enables us to further develop our sustainability activities.
