1. Strategic Analysis and Action

The company declares whether or not it pursues a sustainability strategy. It explains what concrete measures it is undertaking to operate in compliance with key recognised sector-specific, national and international standards.

At the beginning of 2014, our institute was looking for answers to the question: “Which opportunities and risks do we see for Fraunhofer UMSICHT in a consistent alignment with the guiding principle of sustainable development?”. We found the answers in several workshops and discussed them with the institute’s directorate. The results are transparently recorded within the SWOT analysis on page 4 of the current Sustainability Report. Please find more detailed information on this topic in the Fraunhofer UMSICHT Sustainability Report on page 3.

We reported the standards within the Key Performance Indicator G4-56 “The organization’s values, principles, standards and norms of behavior”.
