Governance

Governance keeps our corporate sustainability strategy on track. It ensures that our strategy remains effective, and that accountability for our results sits right at the top of our company. Keeping track of our ambitious sustainability goals requires the needed focus and a clear framework of roles and responsibilities.

The complete framework of the sustainability responsibilities is clearly defined and owned by the business.

Materiality

Defining which issues impact our business is a tough job that needs the right attention. Without defining the materialities of the organization, there can be no focused sustainability plan.

That's why we conduct a materiality assessment every three years. Only in this way, we can ensure that our strategy focuses on the right areas.
