Sustainability at A&E Gütermann is defined as ‘meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.’ Sustainability seeks to balance the economic, social responsibility and environmental impact.
Therefore, we continously strive to improve our performance in key areas of environmental sustainability while acting transparently and ethically. Each year, we measure our performance against the targets outlined in our 10 Threads of Sustainability. The theme of this year's Sustainability Report is 'A focus on the future'. It is this futuristic focus that drives us to keep in mind how all of our actions and activities will affect the world both today and in the future. Because our responsibility starts at our own doorstep – and applies worldwide.
More detailed information on our sustainability goals, progresses and accomplishments in the areas of safety, environmental sustainability and corporate social responsibility can be found in our new Sustainability Report 2018/19.
