Sustainability in Everyday Life

Starting with our involvement in the climate initiative “2041” launched by the British polar researcher Robert Swan (see the “Social Commitment” chapter of this report), our sustainability ambassadors are pushing ahead in-house initiatives to raise awareness of environmentally conscious action in day-to-day life. To this end, we carried out a web-based survey on sustainability at our Wesel site in 2015. More than forty percent of the employees participated.

The results highlight the importance of this issue in the eyes of our workforce. Most of the respondents believe that sustainability is just as important for their lives as for the company as a whole. The request in the survey for staff members to develop ideas for sustainable action in everyday life met with an excellent response. We received a total of 70 suggestions and are currently examining whether they can be implemented.
