4. Depth of the Value Chain

The company states what significance aspects of sustainability have for added value and how deep in the value chain the sustainability criteria are verified.

As a research institute Fraunhofer UMSICHT with its services is placed at the beginning of the value added chain; to some extent samples, prototypes and individual products are produced. We take into consideration issues that might be critical since changes can be realized much easier and cheaper during the development process. This increases the value added to our services for our customers.
