6. Rules and Processes

The company discloses how the sustainability strategy is implemented in the operational business by way of rules and processes.

For internal management the Sustainability Balanced Scorecard (SBSC) is applied. The targets of the institute are set by the directorate; the targets of the business units are agreed upon between the directorate and the heads of the business units (s. page 8 of the Fraunhofer UMSICHT Sustainability Report).

The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft also reports its sustainability activities on the Internet. In October 2014 the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft published its first Sustainability Report.
