Responsibility

We define total success as being successful in the market while at the same time fulfilling our responsibility for society. These two inseparable goals have been a central part of our corporate values for over 165 years.

Our commitment to Compliance, Human Rights & Labor, Sustainability, Health, Safety & Environmental Protection as well as Corporate Citizenship is anchored in our Values & Principles, with particular emphasis on Responsibility. These five areas are closely linked to each other and are expressions of our responsibility for society.
