5. Responsibility

Accountability within the company’s management with regard to sustainability is disclosed.

The overall responsibility for the strategy on sustainability lies with the Management Board.

The steering committee monitors and oversees its sustainability activities. The steering committee consists of two members of the Management Board and managers from our Promotional Business, Treasury, Economics and PR, Risk Controlling and Facilities Management. The activities are being set in motion by our ESG team, which is made up of members from all relevant organisational units.

The coordination of the key sustainability strategy is located in the PR and Economics department, where this issue is being progressed by our Sustainability Officer. She coordinates the cross-departmental collaboration within the ESG team and the steering committee.
